I do a stand float that drops before 10 foot. People think it’s because I specifically maneuver it too, but it’s because I don’t know how to add power to it. I’ve gotten many aces with my weak short floats, but I can’t seem to figure out how to do a strong deep float.

i’m 15 and in highschool, only reason i didn’t try out for the team is because i’ve been taught wrong how to serve and can’t do it right. i excel in bumping and spiking and setting yet can’t get down the serve

Just practice the right way. It’s not really that hard if you put effort into the reps

Arent you supposed to flick your wrist on a jump serve to make it spike on the other side

pepe the frog that’s what they said. They said it should be like a spike.
Awesome video!

serious question..........why do all the girls have their knee pads below the knee?
Gobogi (1 month ago)
Zara Ali that’s where you’re supposed to put it. When you dig onto your knees, the bottom part is where you land on not the knee itself.

LoLCollege (3 months ago)
I started playing volleyball around two months ago and I still can't serve properly/consistently - and I'm a 16 male. Physically I know I'm capable of hitting the ball harder than some of my female friends but I don't know what's lacking in my technique that's causing me not to consistently hit the ball over the net
Chloe Xie (1 month ago)
I think it is because you don’t hit the right spot on your hand, I’m 11 female and I can serve fine. You might be missing something.😥
AdrianZeAwes (1 month ago)
LoLCollege It comes with experience, you just gotta get the feeling. People say its all about the toss and swing, but i think the transition of weight from your right to left leg is also as important
Noukynouk92 (2 months ago)
Sounds weird maybe, but I have the same thing. And it is mentally. I am 27 and playing volleyball for 4 years now. I finally know how to serve upper hand but during a game I suck. During training I nail it. I found out it is in my head. If I say to myself I am gonna hit this hard and over the net. Then there it goes. If I am insecure or don't pay attention I fail.
Ariadna Serrano (3 months ago)
LoLCollege there are many things that could cause you to not be able to serve as well or as hard. You need to follow through as she said many times. The timing and the ball toss is crucial to a serve too
wolf (3 months ago)
I’ve heard that I should flex ur arm when u serve is that true. And my volleyball coach told me it would help if I cupped my hand should I try that or is it a bad habit??

I’ve seen other videos on how to overhand serve and there alright but this on was really specific and helped me
Cassie Eldredge (6 months ago)
Your supposed to follow through not stop on contact.
Gobogi (1 month ago)
So scientifically speaking, the float cannot spin and in order to not spin you can’t follow through. This will allow the air to displace unevenly throughout the ball causing it to shake around like a knuckle ball in baseball. This technique is used so that people get confused on where the balls going.
KNW Wil (1 month ago)
you dont follow through period if you do then it'll go to the right or left not forward
Cutybandit14 (2 months ago)
in the float serve your support to stop to make the ball float more

it's usually just reversed steps - for jump serves and spiking the footwork is right, left, right for three step and left, right, left, right for four step

volley 8 kate (1 year ago)
ur supposed to go through anyway and the “drills” were pretty pathetic my coach explained it and how to do it and then he was like try it and i didn’t look like an idiot doing it
Celina Hang (10 months ago)
volley 8 kate It’s a float serve. In a float serve you want the least amount of spin. If you hit the ball and keep moving your arm, you end up giving the ball a large amount of spin. It would no longer be a float serve then. When you stop your hand when you hit the ball, you give it the least amount of spin possible so that it’s unpredictable.
Greg E (1 year ago)
some strategy: if you hit less than 85km/h don't bother spin serving unless its deadly accurate. Over 85k any small amount of side spin will begin to make a difference and dart left or right as well as down at the last second making it almost impossible to pass. I also say 'deadly' accurate because it is a high risk serve and hitting a top spin ball to the centre of the court is just a gift for the opposition, make sure you can pick the lines. If you do insist on jump serving, i suggest that you practice like crazy, go to the gym early and leave late and when you practice, absolutely WHALE on it, as hard as you can THEN work on accuracy. i know it sounds crazy but if you work on accuracy first then try to add pace your mechanics will break down. video tape yourself from in front, behind, and both sides to pick out any quirks you or your coach may notice and get them corrected at max effort. Given new dimpled balls, floats are much more difficult to pass now. accuracy is not as important when you float because it can dart any which way. also, because it is an easier serve to hit and be accurate more players at the amateur level are developing this serve. As a general tip, if your coach asks you to serve at a position on the court (1,5, or 2) what he/she is really saying is "pick on the player in this position" so whenever you practice be sure to have a targe and work on serving to either side of it.

I'm 13 but when I serve its less.. it can't reach the net😭😭 notice me guys
SoVideo (14 days ago)
What a bunch of stupid replies :D When many people are able to serve over the net, then it shouldn't be so hard. The best way to correct it is through... psychology combined with mathematics! For many persons the ball doesn't get over the net because they are subconsciously terrified with the idea that the ball has to travel a looong 18 meters. Think about this: if the ball travels 18 meters, the peak of the parable (the trajectory) would be at about 9 meters. So your aim could change to sending the ball just be above the net (instead of thinking of the whole 18 meters). Actually, to pass the ball over the net, you don even need an 18-m long shot, but maybe only 12 meters. That means you have to imagine you want to make the ball reach the peak of the parable just above the attack line, which is so much closer. That would solve the psychological aspect. If the real problem is physical weakness, the the solution is again simple: do it in smaller steps. Do one week what is your maximum distance, then next week do just try to make it 1 meter longer. And thus progress each week. But when you learn the aim should focus on the peak of the parable which is half way rather than the destination of the serve. All these, of course, with that smash type of movement, like in karate.

Practice my friends! I'm also 13 and I couldn't serve very far, but I asked my coach for help and then practiced a long ass time Now I have one of the best serves on my team
Lucy Bryars (2 months ago)
I’m 13 but I must be taller. My volleyball coach told my shorter teammates that you want to have a higher toss and just keep practicing until you get that perfect serve. I hope this helps you out!!

epicgamerg1rl oof (1 year ago)

Mia Isabela (1 year ago)
The girl didn't follow through with her arm she stopped it right away like in the position of a high five
gracie elquest (3 days ago)
Angelina (8 months ago)
Mia Isabela That’s because when doing a float serve you are supposed to pop it in the air and not follow through because it helps make the ball harder to receive
Carissa (1 year ago)
Is underhanding not allowed in the professional world?

SharkWhales it depend on a lot of things like if it’s club or school volleyball. At school for me they gave us 8 seconds at club for me they give us 5 seconds to serve

float serving tip (If you didn't understand reply and i will try explaining it a bit better) Float Serve Tip : In the float serve she can take a step to make it stronger. For example if you are right handed you right leg must be back originally.... But you begin with it on the front and when you toss the ball on the air you bring your left leg to the front and the serve is much more powerful than it would simply be if it was for the way it told us...

AdrianZeAwes (1 month ago)
Craig Plummer Bro no need to flex. We know you’re just asking if it is above average or below average, so you can get praises like “OMG YOU CAN JUMPSERVE AT THAT AGE?!?! ARE YOU LIKE OIKAWA OMG OMG” Well lemme tell yah buddy, its average, so don’t think you’re better than everyone, just because you can barely imitate an anime serve.

don't you have to swing all the way through for more power?
slim Alyssahh (3 days ago)
Amelia Colon that’s what I thought too
Josephine Vargas (1 year ago)
Amelia Colon it depends on topspin or float. For a float you never have a follow trough with your arm; your follow through is critical for topspin. Use hips for both.
Craig Plummer (1 year ago)
Amelia Colon yes thats what she said
