This session is designed to work on more advanced serves and combine it with help to handle these serves with serve reception session.

Serving is the first weapon that can generate an immediate point, begin a game, or ignite an offense. A well-placed serve (whether to a weak passer, at the setter, at the quick attacker, or to a weak formation) that is also difficult to pass puts the opponent at a disadvantage. Focus on correct technique and strive for success. In addition, always serve to score points, NOT just to get the ball into the opponent’s court. The serve is the only skill in volleyball where the player has complete control. There are four main types of serves taught in advanced serving session. The overhand topspin, the overhand float serve, the overhand jump topspin and overhand jump float server are the most common serves for competitive volleyball.

Underhand Pass
Accurate and consistent passing can result in aggressive multiple attacks. Be sure that players are in the ready position preparing to execute the proper technique before the service and during a rally. The athlete must face and focus on the oncoming ball. Ensure that the athlete’s arms and hands are in the correct position with wrists together. The legs are a little further than shoulder-width apart with feet parallel. The ball is contacted on the forearms. Upon contact, the athlete maintains a stationary straight arm position so that the ball rebounds off the lower part of the forearms and is directed to the target. The knees are extended to raise the arms forward upon contact. Straightening the legs completes the pass; the arms are behind the ball, and weight is transferred in the direction of the pass, not upwards.
