Serving Specialist

Position: Serving Specialist

Role: Offense and Defense

Height Requirement: None

The serving specialist’s primary job is to come into the game and serve either aces or tough balls, and then play defense in the back row for the duration of the play. Often these players have a very high ace to error ratio, are consistent servers, and make the opposing team out of system with a tough serve.

Basic passing technique is not very complicated, but it takes a lot of repetition to get it done right. Weight should always be slightly forward and you should never swing your arms.
