Video Transcript: "ADDISON MUSSER: "Hey, my name is Addison from Captain Bill's, and I'm going to teach you, how to jump serve a volleyball. Jump serving is a very effective type of serve, it's mainly used for power purposes, and it can be very effective when used against an opponent who may be a little slower. You can try to put the ball anywhere on the court, and because it's so powerful, the defender is going to have a hard time getting their body in front of it, to get a good pass on the ball. So the main part of your jump serve is your toss, it's the most import part of the jump serve. You want the ball out in front of you when you toss, and you want to throw it up high enough so you can take an approach, and so that you can hit the ball over the net effectively. Also when jump serving the ball, you don't want to hit the ball down like you normally would when spiking a volleyball, you want to hit it out in front of your body, instead of down, so that it can take the velocity and go straight over the net, and then drop down with a top spin on the ball. You also want to use your wrist in the ball, in the serve, you want to, as you're hitting the ball, use your wrist to make the top spin on the ball, which will make the ball drop a lot faster on the other side of the net, to keep it in, and to make it a difficult serve for your opponent. And that is how to jump serve a volleyball."
