How To Jump Serve In Volleyball
Knowing how to jump serve in volleyball calls for perfect timing, agility, speed doesn't hurt to show off your masculinity. Girls dig that. Are you ready to hit the beach and play some volleyball the manly-man way? Good! We’re going to show you how.
- Toss. This is where timing plays such an important part. Step away from the volleyball baseline about four to five steps. Toss the volleyball underhanded up in front of you. The ball must be high enough and far enough to cross the baseline plane. Practice, practice, practice for this is paramount in jump serving in this game.
- Leap. Basic spike attack. You rush forward, plant your feet in front of the baseline. Your body momentum will carry you over the baseline when you hit the volleyball and that’s perfectly legal. No foot fault there considered in this sport.
- Aggressive serve. At the very peak of your leap with the ball high over your head, reach up and snap you hand on top of the volleyball. It’s exactly like a spike but thirty feet away. Not a problem, you can do it. Your back arced, legs bent beneath you with your guide arm out in front of you.
- Passive serve. At the peak of your leap hit the ball dead center with a locked wrist. Basic floater technique but with a lot of muscle behind the attack.
- Hand position. Flat palm like a karate chop. You may also serve with your fist. Find which method gives you the most accuracy in keeping the volleyball in bounds as you jump serve.
If you’re playing beach or outdoor volleyball you may use the wind to your advantage. Keep that in mind because it can also work against you when you toss the ball for the jump serve. With a lot of practice you’ll just show everyone you are the man to fear on the court. Girls dig that, too.
