How To Jump Serve

One of the most dramatic skills in modern volleyball that has become a dangerous offensive weapon, is the jump serve. The player starts about a couple of feet to a couple of meters behind the serving line (the line at the end of the court) and starts their dynamics to make the serve possible.
It is generally agreed that most of the jump servers are outside hitter, right side hitters, or possibly even the setters. Being hitters gives a huge advantage to jump serving; they are typically the ones who know how hard to hit the ball, and where to contact. That allows them to produce very high impact and produce very high velocities that are difficult to return.
The jump serve has many similarities to the spike itself. The player strikes the ball with maximum force at the peak of its jump, and tries to place it so the opposing team cannot return it clearly. It has been determined that between 3 to 5 steps this serve is possible.
Today im going to show you how to complete the serve in 5 steps.

What You’ll Need

1. Volleyball Court

2. Volleyball Net

3. Players

4. Volleyball


1. Position yourself - meaning take the ball behind the serving line far enough to take your approach

2. Look at the positions on the court - meaning look for the weak passers or holes on the opposite side of the floor

3. Start with your right foot forward if you are right handed and if left handed start with your left foot forward

4. Now depending on which jump serve you want to do (half or whole)
Whole: toss the ball up with either right hand, left hand, or both, then take your approach (left, right, left) or (right left right)
Half: Do your approach (left, right, left) or (right, left, right) then toss the ball up

5. Reach and hit the ball at its peak.

...on how it is. In the first text by Sarah Palin, it is her son who enlist, to protect and serve his country, or ad she say in the text, he did it because of the younger generation in our family … he wanted them to grow up in a safe world. The most important statement she wants to give to us, is that we should not allow our kids to go in to war, and risk their lives, never knowing if they will be coming home alive or in a casket. On the other hand se can´t seem to understand why those kids chose to enlist in the first place, why not stay home and get a collage degree and take care of your family. Then if we take a look at text number two by David Zucchino, he talks about a man who have come home from service, and no longer is the same as before… he sufferers from PTSD which he will never recover completely from, the main focus of this text is to tell us that the soldiers who do service in the US Army and who has been sent in to war, never becomes the same when they come home, there are almost no offers for them, no treatment. It is also the story about a father that allowed his son to go in to war, and risk his life… as the father says in the end of the text…..”I wish he had never gone in”.

Scripture: Foundation Scripture: Joshua 24: 14-16 Joshua 24    And Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and called for the elders of Israel, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers; and they presented themselves before God.  And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.  And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac.  And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went down into Egypt.  I sent Moses also and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out.  And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the sea; and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with chariots and horsemen unto the Red sea.  And when they cried unto the LORD, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season.  And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt on the other side Jordan; and they fought with you: and I gave them into......

In Your View, Discuss How Marketing Communication Can Serve a Strategic and Tactical Role in a Marketing Campaign. Provide Examples

...IN YOUR VIEW, DISCUSS HOW MARKETING COMMUNICATION CAN SERVE A STRATEGIC AND TACTICAL ROLE IN A MARKETING CAMPAIGN. PROVIDE EXAMPLES Marketing campaign are specific activities designed to promote a product, service or business through marketing communication. Marketing communication are co-ordinated promotional messages delivered through one or more channels such as print, radio, television, direct mail and personal selling. Marketing communication can have either a strategic or a tactical role depending on the marketing tool use and the effects it has on consumers. A tactical role is one that implies ‘Short-duration, adaptive, action-interaction realignments that opposing forces use to accomplish limited goals after their initial contact’ (Quinn, 2003). Therefore, a tactical role is to be quick and fix in action expecting a limited or no result in the future; like for example a sudden sales promotion in response to concurrence Marketing strategy. In contrast a strategic role implies long term plans and consequences involving many of the organization’s activities and resources, and which could shape the company’s competitive position in order to fit some environmental change (Johnson et al, 2005). Marketing campaigns can be used for various reason, however so as to give my view on how marketing communication can serve a strategic and tactical role we will focus on five uses of marketing campaigns which are Introducing new product, build brand image, increase sales of product......

The Physics of High Jump

...The Physics of High Jump Physics is the most important aspect of every sport that people play today. One sport that is completely physics based is track and field, but more specifically, the event known as the high jump. High jump has been around since the 19th century, with the first jump simply a standing high jump. Over the past one hundred years the technique of high jump has evolved to include: the scissor kick, the western roll, and eventually the fosbury flop; which is currently used today. With each new technique came higher results. I have been high jumping since junior high and for the past six years I’ve learned the ins and outs of what it takes to achieve a successful jump. I currently jump for the University of Tennessee and my knowledge of the event has since increased. The specific technique that I will talk about is known as the fosbury flop, or simply known as the flop. High jump can be broken down into three stages: the run up phase or approach, the takeoff phase, and the flight or bar clearance phase. By understanding these three stages and the different laws of physics that make them up, one will have a much greater understanding of the most exciting event in track and field. The first part of high jump is the approach or the run up. The most important parts of the run up are the J-curve and the speed. It is important to maximize the amount of speed that a runner brings to the bar; therefor the approach is run along a curve in the shape of a J. As the......

...The article Serve Rather Than Steer ; NPM in the Philippines: A Query on How to Apply NPM Principles to Reform Initiatives tackles about kinds of leadership, how to manage people well and that someday leadership will turn to “no one is in charge”. Leadership is a process that occurs throughout an organization, it is not just for the President, Governor, Head Officials or any person that is in high position but it is for every citizen. Shift leadership is also necessary for any country to survive. Leadership needs to be conceptualized,it is inevitable associated with important human and public policies, individually and collectively.Top – Down leadership is outdated, new approach to leadership is advisable because today, citizens are more cooperative, wants to participate in decisions that involves them and their family, they want to be heard not said. People became more educated about their rights as citizens and how to put it in use. New Public Management (NPM)is an approach being glorified by government officials of Germany, it is tested and used in most countries, and it results to success and positive feedback's. NPM is said to be a respective government need. If it is implemented properly, it can be an effective approach to reform public sector. The only main concern is that, “Is Philippines ready? Do Philippines have the ability to embrace it?“ Since Philippines is one of the most corrupt countries with problematic election, bloated bureaucracy, fiscal......

Evolution of the High Jump

...High Jump The high jump is an event that first appeared in the ancient Greek Olympic Games. During the 19th century in Scotland the first high jump event was recorded. During this time the jumpers used a straight on or a scissor kick technique. The high jump is a very unique event. The event has modernized from the 19th century. The high jump has certain rules an athlete must follow to be able to compete in the event. The different heights are chosen by the official personnel of the event during the meet. However the athlete and or competitor can chose to start at the standard height that the official set, or they can chose to pass to a higher height. Once the bar is raised it does not get lowered for anyone. Anytime an athlete has failed a height, they can chose to pass to the next height, but only if they do not use up all three of their three attempts. Also if they were to leave for another event without letting the official know, the bar would still be raised and they will not lower it and it will be considered as a pass for that height. At each height the jumpers are allowed three consecutive jumps, and if the athlete fails all three then the athlete is eliminated. Athletes are eliminated for knocking the bar off the supports, also known as the standards, and if they break the plain under the crossbar or beyond the standards. The athlete is given 90 seconds for each attempt; if it is not completed in that time it is considered as a failed attempt. When the high jump......

How Did the Arts Serve the Soviet State?

...How did the arts serve the Soviet State? The arts had had a different purpose throughout the era of the Soviet State. Nevertheless the Soviet State was wholly under the control of the Soviet System, which Stalin used as an ideology and as a tool to disseminate state polemics. The system was required to suppress the opposition and create social consciousness of an obedient Soviet person. However first it is important to mention that the Soviet State had officially been formed in 1922 and lasted until 1991. And thus the debate concerning the service that the arts had acted upon should start from 1922. The Soviet Art in the early 1920s was relatively pluralistic due to the fact that there were many different schools of thoughts present. There was the avant-garde art, which was considered bourgeois but could not be gotten rid of, due to the fact that the country was still in a state of anarchy. Artists like Salvatore Dali or Pablo Picasso were very popular among soviet artists. (need more info). There was a bigger freedom of expression during the twenties that the artists had not experienced later on. Indeed Anna Akhmatova, a famous Russian author and a poet had said once "To think that the best years of our lives were during the war, when so many people were being killed, when we were starving and my son was doing forced labour.” That patently signifies the extent of control that the artists were under. Moreover her very close friend Boris Pasternak confirmed the...

Called to Serve

...Called to Serve, Saved to Serve, Living on Mission with God: During a recent trip to Mexico City, I had the opportunity to visit a church planted by a church planter who was trained by the Bible League. The church has been using our Project Philip program as a way of mobilizing members more effectively to reach their families and communities for Christ. A woman by the name of Gabriella Villa and her husband were two of those people reached through this outreach. (at the church plant we attended) .*they joined the church and went through the Project Philip program as a members of a church *they started working with families sharing the word of God with them through the use of Project Philip. *They had just finished working with a family of 5 when - Another couple came to the Pastor seeking for help with their marriage and significant family issues- issues of violence, drug addiction and gang affiliations. * pastor asks Gabriela and her husband to use God's Word and PP training to help them * couple's marriage falling apart, drug issues, violence, etc. Tearing family apart * the family their lives were transformed, using the Word of God and PP.

Serve Others

...Serve others, be happy By: Mahar Mangahas Philippine Daily Inquirer 10:51 pm | Friday, August 31st, 2012 Share on facebook_likeShareTweet 14 Despite his great worth as a man for others, Jesse Robredo was only moderately popular with the voters, relative to other national leaders. His survey ratings (if he even noticed them) were not enough to favor him to win a Senate seat in 2013.  But clearly, he expected no other reward than being happy to serve others.   Now the call is for everyone to be a Robredo. How many Filipinos are capable of heeding it? I am optimistic that the potential number is large, based on some data about Filipino altruism, recorded in the World Values Survey (WVS) of 2001.   Altruism in the Philippines, 2001. The WVS-2001 had a battery of questions as to how important were several matters in the lives of the respondents.  Of seven matters tested, the three with the highest percentages calling it Very Important in their lives were “family” (99), “work” (94) and “religion” (87).   In the middle of the seven matters was “serving others,” which 57 percent of Filipino adults called Very Important. Such Filipinos are altruists. There is no doubt that Jesse Robredo was one of them.   The three other matters in the battery, with lower percentages calling them Very Important, were “friends” (37), “politics” (22), and “leisure time” (15).   Aside from the 57 percent altruistic, another 37 percent called serving others  Rather Important, and 6......

‘of Mice and Men’ Serves as a Reminder That Dreaming Is Futile. How Far Do You Agree with This Representation of the Text and Its Key Themes?

...‘Of Mice and Men’ serves as a reminder that dreaming is futile. How far do you agree with this representation of the text and its key themes? To first answer the question we need to define a key element, what are dreams? When we dream we contemplate the possibility of doing something or indulging in fantasies about something greatly desired. Yet they are necessary to keep the levels of hope high in people to stand for what they believe in whether it be the inadequacies of society or something else. Furthermore without incorporating dreams and having something to achieve in our life will result in an endless stream of days that have little connection or meaning. The representation of dreams occurs via prejudice and stereotypes- Crooks, because he is black in a racist culture- seems to be no hope for him; Curley’s wife, only woman on the farm and regarded as a tart- will never feel wanted, another hopeless situation; Candy, one-handed- can’t do the same work as the others and is old- can’t socialize with anyone, lonely and isolated. These situations give reason for dreaming as it becomes a paradise for those who wish for something more in their life and acts as a beacon of hope yet over time dreams either materialize or they question reality and in the book no one achieves or has achieved their dream- Lennie and George, Curley’s wife and Curley. Dreams will always be a source of hope but if they are not achieved you begin to realise that they are futile which is why to some......

The Tennis Serve

...The Tennis Serve By: Brayden Bennell Harloff 7/8 5/18/2015 What do you need to do to make sure you have a successful tennis serve? Sure practice will help, but truly the secret lies in different muscles in your arms, abs, and most importantly legs. Legs? Why Legs? In this presentation I will show you why and how you can maximize your ability in your serve. To begin with a successful serve, look for a racquet that has a grip that fits the size of your hand, this will maximize grip as well as momentum through the swing of your stroke. The serve is a full body motion, not just an upper body move, if one thing is off the whole serve will be different than expected. I suggest the Babolat Aero Drive tennis racquet for powerful serves, as being one of the heavier performance racquets on the market it will provide more power and control to your shots. You will be amazed with what 10.9 ounces can do for your game. To start I would lift small weights of 5-10 pounds daily in the swing of the serve, this will help strengthen all the muscles you actually use when you serve the ball. Believe it or not, the main muscles in your arm don’t take a part in what makes a powerful serve, it’s the muscles that are hidden and are significantly smaller than the bicep, and tricep. But enough about that, now that you know some tips lets move on to the knowledge and mental aspect of the serve. Your mental game in tennis is more important than anything else, if you don’t believe and get down on......

Why They Serve

...the first story written by Sarah Palin the reader get a motivating story on why the soldiers serve. Why they serve is also the title of her autographical text from 2010. David Zucchino 
has written a story from a soldiers perspective on how hard it has been to go fight fore the country. At last Joel Pitney round of by sharing another angle on how it is to be in the army. The first text is written by Sarah Palin and is called “Why They Serve”. In this text the reader is given Sarah’s opinion about why young individuals should join the army. She tries to motivate people to join the army to defend their country although it is tough. She uses her own son who joined the army as an example of how people should defend their country. She relates to the mothers who went trough and are going trough the same pain and anxiousness as her. “I was the mom of a young soldier being sent overseas to defend our country” This quote shows the reader that she is proud but also sad that her son left for the army. The second text is about Ryan who joins the army and how it affects his family. Ryan’s father Tim Kahlor encouraged Ryan to go the military although he would have liked the idea of Ryan going to collage better. Ryan says that the military destroyed his life and broke the entire family. “[...] a walking billboard for virtually every affliction suffered by today’s veterans” This quote describes how Ryan’s experience in the army hunts him till this day.

How Might Labelling Acivities 'Deviant' Serve as a Form of Scoial Control?

...HOW MIGHT THE LABELLING OF ACTIVITIES AS ‘DEVIANT’ SERVE AS A FORM OF SOCIAL CONTROL? Deviancy is considered any behaviour to violate cultural norms and it is essentially split between two formations; formal deviancy (crime) and informal deviancy (social). Social control is a product of social learning via labeling strategies, it is composed of both informal and formal mechanisms and maintains that the exploitation of socialization and social learning contributes to the individual building of self-control, and in the reduction divergent behaviour. Both controls enforce labeling as a sanction to shame the supposedly deviant character; it infers that the individual has earned disapproval from society due to failed expectations of behaviour. Labeling theorists propose that criminality comes from the response to behaviour as an alternative to actual violation of the law (Wellford, 1975), this is evident in society’s acceptance of illegal downloading despite the sanctions and group in powers values. Durkheim views this defiance as a necessity to an ever changing society where deviance is of use to maintaining functionality, social constancy and collective consciousness, when this is absent anomie is said to arise. Labelling theory holds much of the same stance as conflict theory in emphasising the power of social groups and social control in expectations and stigmatisation. Where the delegation of labels creates sub-groups within society each group is anticipated to fulfil......

Army Pre Jump

...071A0123 17 March 2009 SUSTAIN AIRBORNE TRAINING FOR THE T-11 PERSONNEL PARACHUTE SYSTEM Prior to Pre-jump Training, place the jumpers into a formation that allows the jumpmaster to easily control them and make on the spot corrections. The extended rectangular formation and the horseshoe formation are the two preferred formations. Prior to placing the jumpers into formation, ensure the jumpmaster team inspects the ballistic helmets, ID tags and ID cards. The jumpmasters or the safeties can accomplish this inspection. Although Pre-jump can be given by anyone on the jumpmaster team, the primary jumpmaster can delegate authority but not responsibility. Holding, running, one riser slips, and other information can be inserted into Pre-jump as the Airborne Commander sees fit. Although Pre-jump training should be tailored to fit the mission, emergency landings will always be covered due to the many variables involved with emergency situations; i.e. if jumpers have to conduct an emergency bailout over unfamiliar terrain. Pre-jump training is performance-oriented training and the jumpmaster team must ensure that the jumpers are performing the actions as they are being covered. During Pre-jump training, use the “HIT IT” exercise as often as needed to keep the jumpers actively involved. Jumpmasters will refer to their unit ASOPs for additional guidance. When Jumping the T-11 parachute from rotary wing aircraft the time between exit and full......
