Here's the Secret You've Been Waiting For To Serve More Balls Over The Net!

Keeping your serving elbow high and giving yourself a consistent toss are two secrets to having a good standing float serve.

Good job Lena!

Most beginner servers when they get into trouble serving its because they dont get the ball over the net consistently,

If this is the case want to know how to fix your serving problem quickly? 

Serving Drills For Beginners
One Server vs Two Passers

One server serves 20 balls alternating between

  • serving the left back server, 
  • the middle back server, 
  • the deep seam between them 
  • deep down the line on the left side of the left back passer and 
  • the short seam 

between the two of them. 

That's five different areas the server can practice aiming for.

After sets of 20 serves the players rotate so that left back passer moves to middle back passer and middle back passer becomes the next server to serve 20 balls. 

Wait for the beginning of your serve when you set up...keep your serving arm elbow close to your ear!

There you go! That's it! Its kinda that simple once you know it. 

The secret to consistently serving the ball over the net for beginners..starts with keeping your serving arm higher.

Jump Serving Down The Line: Work on Keeping Body Balanced and Elbow High During the Serve Approach

I always give my clients and players a physical point of reference. In this case its your ear.

Keep your serving arm high enough so if you look at it'll see your elbow ABOVE your ear.

Now keep it there during your swing and don't drop it as you turn your hip and shoulder to contact the ball to serve it.

When I focus on doing that during my serving drills for beginners it makes a huge difference in how many balls my players get over the net with tougher serves.

Try it, you'll like it.
