When we coaches say aggressive serving, what exactly does that mean? Here is what I mean when I use that phrase.
There is a point at which service aggression is just right to achieve the highest point scoring (breakpoint) percentage, but it varies.
A fellow blogger took a look at scoring points in streaks in the volleyball and how it relates to the outcome of sets. I have my thoughts on the subject.
It's time to put in your line-up. Do you put your best server(s) first in the rotation? Or are there other possible considerations that are more important?
In the 2016 men's NCAA volleyball finals it looked like a conservative serving strategy ended up backfiring pretty badly.
A funny post by a fellow blogger on the subject of service target zones comes as I am considering my own usage of them with my team.
Lots of volleyball coaches want their teams to serve tougher, but there's a trade off between winning more rallies and losing more points through higher errors.
