Hold the volleyball in one hand. This hand will not move until the serve is performed. Form the other hand (preferably the one you write with) into a tighter version of the sign language E. Staying lined up, swing it back 3 times. The first one is for aim. The second is for power and strength. The third is the one that will hit it over. Remember to follow through and point your fist at where to hit it. . . . . . . This is the court. . . . . . . g the 'g' is where to aim.

You shouldn't underhand serve. It is not effective and no one, ever, serves like that at levels higher than 14's usually. Its like a free ball for the other side to slam it in your face. although if you ever play my team, we'd sure appreciate an underhand server. ha

when serving the ball underhand, you want to form a fist with your dominate hand and hit the ball at the wrist which provides you with the best combination of control and power
