How to Play Volleyball : How to Float Serve in Volleyball


Hi my name’s Addison from Captain Bill’s,
and I’m going to teach you how to float serve a volleyball. Float serving is probably the
most effective serve there is in volleyball. When you float serve the ball actually does
not move, or it’s not supposed to move. Which is very hard for defenders to pass, because
the ball can move, come right to them one time, and then later it can kind of move away
from them, depending on the wind. Or even if it’s indoor it can just drop automatically.
So the float serve is very effective in both indoor and outdoor volleyball. Mainly outdoor
because you have the wind to use to your advantage, which can help to move the volleyball. In
float serving you want to take your hand, and you want instead of putting some top spin
on the ball and using your wrist. You don’t use your wrist at all you keep your hand flat
the whole time. And instead of following through like you would a regular float serve, you
almost in a way stop your follow through so that you can follow through to where you are
serving the ball. And you want your hand flat at all times, which makes the ball stay still
and float towards your opponent. And that’s how to float serve a volleyball.

  13. whats the difference between a float serve and an overhand serve…? because i was just watching the overhand one and this one, and it looks the same… someone plz tell me?

  14. @kbbles A float serve is harder to receive. Cause the ball tends to drop in front of you before you can even hit it.

  15. @bestwishesmaple but what's the difference when trying to do an overhand between trying to do a float serve?

  16. @kbbles A float serve can be achieved by stopping your hand in mid air when you contact the ball. Kind of like a jerking motion.

  17. @kbbles a float serve and top spin serve are types of overhand serves

  18. How do you know if you're doing a float serve?! Please tell me ASAP…

  19. Get your coach to judge for you? Or get a friend to stand in the court while you serve and ask her if your ball suddenly changes position when she attempts to bump it
