Volleyball Serving Why Strong Volleyball Serve Skills Are So Important

After learning the basic skills of volleyball serving its important that you learn in practice how to strategically serve to specific positions on the court.   


Volleyball serving is the game's "equalizer."

I like to say that to my players because from start to finish you and only you control every aspect and especially the outcome of the serve. 


It doesn't matter how tall, how wide or how short you are.

By developing tough volleyball serving skills that score aces, make points, or put the opposing team in difficulty consistently, I guarantee you will regularly see court time.

The Importance of Serving The Ball "In"


It goes without saying that every time you go back to serve the ball you should work on consistently getting the ball in the opposing team's court. 

You want to build a reputation, first in practice and then in any occasions when you are in the game...that you are the reliable player that always gets the ball "in." 

Even if you dont score a direct point with your serve you want to be the player that when the coach looks down the bench and is deciding on who to put in next..he or she considers you first because you've built a good volleyball serving reputation up of consistently getting the ball over the net and in the court. 



Sure, everyone makes mistakes but when it comes to volleyball serving you want to be the player who makes the least amount of serving errors on your team.
