Overhand Serve in Volleyball

Pick a target

Serving is a proactive activity and should be done with intent. At higher levels players are instructed to serve specific opposing players or locations on the court in an effort to go for aces or to put the other team under pressure. Even at lower levels, though, picking a target is a good way to get focused in a positive fashion about your serve. It helps you visualize your serve and gives you something better to think about than “get the ball in”. Much better to be proactive than hopeful.

Take your time

I see so many players serve as soon as the whistle blows, rushing their serves needlessly. This tends to lead to mistakes. Much better to take your time and get yourself focused. You have several seconds after the whistle blows, so relax. This is especially important after a long or important rally. Give yourself time to take a breath, pick your target, and visualize the serve going right where you want it.
