video you will have my seven tips that will get you serving the ball over the
net and into the court. These are the exact serving tips I use with my players
and now it’s your turn. So number one. Practice the hand contact. To be a good
server, you need to develop a strong hand contact on the ball. You do this by
practicing slapping the ball. You can do this by slapping the ball on
the ground before you serve. You need to get a good feel of what it’s like to
contact the ball correctly. The more you practice. the more comfortable you become
hitting the ball. Number two. Focus on the center of the ball. After you toss the
ball, stay focused on making contact through the center of the ball, By
hitting the center, this will make the ball go straight. Now the key to hitting
a good float serve is hitting through the center of the ball. If you haven’t seen
my video on how to serve a really good floater, make sure you check it out. The
link to watch it is a description below and also in the cards this video. Number
three. Practice the toss. The biggest reason beginners miss serves is because
the toss doesn’t go straight up and down in front of the hitting shoulder. You want
to keep the toss low and in front of the head and shoulder. If you toss the ball a
little to the left, you’ll hit it to the left. If you toss up a little to the
right, you’ll hit it to the right. If you toss it too far out in front, you’ll hit
it in the net. You want to toss it low straight up and down in front of the
hitting shoulder. Number four. Always load the shoulder
before you serve. Draw the arm back so you’re ready to come forward and hit the
ball. If you get in the habit of getting in this loaded position before you serve,
your serving will be more consistent and therefore your serves will be a lot more
accurate. Number five. Focus on quality repetitions. To be a good server, you need
to practice good technique. Practicing just five minutes a day of good technique
will go a long way to becoming a great server. Number six. Shift your weight from
the back to front foot. This will help you hit the ball with more power. Now if you haven’t seen my video on how
to hit with more power make sure you check it out.

Number seven. To get the ball over the net, aim for a spot on the ceiling. If you
find the ball tends to go in the net, you may also be contacting the ball too far
in front. Pick a spot on the ceiling to aim for. This will help you get the toss
where it needs to be. If you’ve been struggling to serve and have a question
