When coaching serving I focus first on improving and performing the fundamental basic serving skills.
I can't emphasize enough that you are the only person who controls the effectiveness of YOUR serve.
Improving your volleyball service technique is the one fundamental skill you can do without the help or intervention of anyone else to score a direct point for your team.
That is very powerful and trust me even many elite players don't take advantage of this unique opportunity.
This may sound funny or obvious but serving a tough ball in the court after a team has called a timeout is not always easy.
If a volleyball team has scored several points in a row and the opposing coach calls a timeout elite athletes always try to follow the Golden Rule "Keep your serve in" after a timeout has been called.
Because the opposing coach has called the timeout for several reasons ...one of which is to specifically distract YOU the server in hopes of getting you to MISS your serve which can instantly change the momentum of the game.
You keep your team's point scoring momentum ...by keeping your serve...in the court.
This has been an important message by your favorite volleyball coach! That's me!!
