Sean Byron shares how serving strategies can vary based on level of play, circumstance and the goals of a particular team. But one rule holds hard and fast: The first serve must ALWAYS be in the court.
Second serve strategy varies. Sometimes, a coach may want a second serve to be more aggressive and targeted to a particularly weak player or seam. A coach may request that a second serve be difficult enough to put the other team in a difficult offensive situation. Serving strategies should be dynamic and are based on a number of different factors including player skill level, offensive systems and goals of the game.
