Video Transcript: "ADDISON MUSSER: "Hey, my name's Addison from Captain Bills and I'm going to teach you how to serve a volleyball. Underhand serve is probably the easiest serve to use when playing volleyball. When serving underhand, you want to face where you are going to serve the ball so if I'm trying to get the ball over the net you want to face exactly where you're serving the ball. When you're serving the ball, you want to take the ball out in front of you, in one hand, about waist high and arms length away from you, take your other hand, put it in a fist and you want the ball to contact you right on the meat of your fist, right here on the top, that's your best platform to serve the ball underhand. So, take the ball out in front of you and take the ball here, bring your hand back and hit the ball right in the middle, not on any side because that way, if you hit it on the side, it's going to go off to one side. If you hit it right in the middle it's going to go straight in front of you, right where you're facing where you want the ball. When you put all those steps together, you can serve the ball over the net successfully. That's how you serve a volleyball."
