Volleyball Topspin Serve (4 TIPS TO MASTER THE SPIN SERVE)

Have you been struggling to figure out
how to serve. If so, watch this video and you will discover my four tips
to serving really good standing topspin. For the best volleyball coaching and
training advice, subscribe to my channel and hit the bell to be notified when I
post a new video every Tuesday. If you can’t figure out how to hit with topspin,
by the end of this video, you’ll have my four tips that will get you hitting
really good topspin. This will get you contacting the ball the way you need
to, to create really good topspin. These are the exact tips I use with my players
and now it’s your turn. Number one, change your toss. When serving topspin, the ball needs to
be tossed more behind you and not so far out in front. For the topspin serve the ball is contacted
more above your head and not so far out in front. When you serve a floater, the contact is
more in front. For topspin, you need to contact the ball further back. This is
because you need to wrap your hand over the ball to create spin. Now if you haven’t seen my video on how
to serve a floater, make sure you check it out. The link to watch it is
description below and also in the cards of this video. The second thing you need
to focus on is clawing the ball. You basically want to be able to wrap your
hand over the top of the ball. This clawing action on the ball is what
creates topspin. If you haven’t seen my video on how
to spike with topspin, make sure you check it out because this is where I
further explain the concept of clawing the ball. The link to watch it is in the
description below and also in the cards in this video. The third thing you need
to do is be sure you finish the movement with the fingers pointing down. When you
finish with the fingers pointed down, this will guarantee you create topspin. The fourth thing to do is listen to the
contact. You need to understand the difference between a good sounding
contact and a bad sounding contact. A good contact for creating topspin will
sound like you’re slapping the ball. When you hear this slap, this is a sign you
made good contact on the ball. Number five, the last thing you’re going
to need to do is hit the ball with more power. You can hit a float or hit even harder
because you were hitting through the center of the ball. With topspin, you’re
hitting through the top of the ball so you need to focus on hitting the ball
harder than other types of serves. Create more power by opening the hips and
shoulders and taking a bigger step as you hit the ball. Now if you haven’t watched my video
where I explain the different types of serves, make sure you check it out. The
link to watch it is the description below and also in the cards this video.
