Youth Volleyball Drills - Overhead Toss Drill

Great drill to teach the toss for the overhead serve.

Right handed players, stand with left foot slightly forward. Hold the ball in the left hand and extend the arm straight out from the body at a ninety degree angle. (Left-handed players will do the exact opposite). With a firm wrist, arm toss the ball 18 inches high but let it fall to the ground. The ball should fall to the spot on the floor just inside of the lead foot and in line with the hitting shoulder. The toss is crucial to a successful serve because an improperly tossed ball will cause a poor arm angle resulting in a bad serve. Remember when serving-on a bad toss you should let the ball fall to the ground, and then attempt again.
