What To Work On In Practice - Underhand Volleyball Serve Practice


First you want to work on getting the ball over the net and inside the court lines of the opposing team's court...consistently. 



Most beginners will use underhand serves to do this because its an easier to serve to do. 

So if you just have an underhand serve, thats ok but go do 

  • 30 in a row, then 
  • take a break then 
  • do another 30 in a row then 
  • take a break and repeat until you've completed 4 sets of 30. 

For each 30 you're trying to see how many you actually get "in" the court. 

Keep your score and write it down. That way during your next practice you know how much you need to improve your serving skills. 

So if during your first set of 30 attempts you got 15 balls "in" the court write that down. 

Like this 15/30. That's 15 balls in the court... out of 30 total volleyball serving attempts made. 

That's 50% of the balls. 

That's a good score but you always want to get at least half the balls that you attempt to serve "in" the court. 

So from now on when working on volleyball serving drills in practice by yourself or in open gym your goal is to attempt 30 serves and to get at least 15 in the court.
