As a coach, navigating team parents who are new to the club system or volleyball in general can sometimes be challenging and time consuming. That's why it's important to offer resources to help educate parents so they have a basic understanding of the game, how the club system works, competition and tournament protocol, and basic skills and strategies. Watch as Brennan Dean, Club Director at Wave Volleyball Club, provides a thorough introduction to the sport to help ease parents into the system so you can keep your focus on your team's success.
Serving is one of the primary building blocks of a successful team. Different types of serves include:
- The float: Little to no spin on the ball to keep the path of the ball unpredictable.
- The short serve: Any serve inside the 10-foot line, forcing the front row players to pass.
- Jump top spin: Fast and spinny so the ball drops short.
- Second tempo: A serve in between the front and back row players down the center of the court.
Serving signs, or hand signals given to players by a coach, signal different locations for a player to serve. This is more common at higher levels of play.
