with Gwen Egbert,
Papillion-La Vista South HS (NE) Head Girl's Volleyball Coach;
3x State Championships,
All-Conference player for University of Nebraska
Out of necessity with a weak serving team, long time Nebraska high school coach Gwen Egbert was motivated to break down the serve into a simple progression. In this 2010 AVCA Convention video, she shares the progression she has used with great success.
Coach Egbert is very innovative in creating skills that help the athlete groove a feel for the proper technique. Her methods control the variables for the player in a way that prevents the most common serving technical errors and accentuates the techniques necessary for serving success.
She details how to teach the float, the jump float and the jump spin serves. After sharing the skill set of each of these serves, Egbert details how she presents and identifies serving zones to her players.
Watch as Egbert demonstrates a series of full serving drills and competitive serving games, all of which include a coaching narrative from Egbert on what to look for in your players to improve their serving success.
Egbert is in the trenches of high school and club volleyball and completely in tune with the challenges of coaching younger players. This presentation offers an invaluable proven skill set that is sure to add success to your serving game!
