Visualize yourself serving a tough volleyball serve that lands in the court, right to the specific position you are aiming for. 

Use the power of visualization as an effective mental tool before you serve.

See yourself going through the motions of your serving technique when you are off the court, so that when you are on the court, every serving motion comes naturally. 

Believe it or not, this is a great way of conducting your serving practice when you are outside or away from the gym.


Serving Tips For Volleyball -Toss The Ball The Same Way Every Time

It's critical when you proceed through all of the serving steps, that you toss the ball the same way every time you serve

  • Create a ritual that you will perform each time you serve so you don't rush your serving process.

That ritual could be

  • bouncing the ball three times in a row
  • taking a breath
  • followed by pointing your hip and tossing arm in the direction you want to serve 

before serving.

Whatever your tossing ritual is, work it out so you do the same thing every time.

This helps you

  • settle your brain down and
  • increase your focus and concentration

especially if you have to serve after a long rally.


Serving Tips For Volleyball
Serve Like You Spike


Before you serve, you can follow two types of serving strategies. You can decide to either

  • going for a point or 
  • just place the ball strategically so that your team that's on defense will do the rest.

If you decide that you are going to begin the play by attacking with your serve...

...then develop the ability to maintain the same mentality with your deep serves that you have with your spike.

Get aggro!  Be aggressive.

Many players mistakenly think that every serve of the ball should be just to start the rally.

This type of serve looks like an easy lob, high over the net just to get the ball over, to let the other team start the play.

In reality, your serve should first be used to score a point for your own team.
