We use key words when teaching the basic skills of volleyball. For example, here is the athlete in the ready position for the overhead serve.
The athlete is opening her shoulders and hips to generate power with her trunk rotation, instead of just using her shoulder. We use the term "Lift" instead of toss in effort to be more precise.
The athlete is stepping with her left foot since she is serving with her right hand. She is also closing her shoulders and hips along with her right elbow (not hand) leading to serve the ball.
We stress the player "High Five" the ball with a big open hand and stiff wrist to serve a float serve. Also notice how she reaching high with her arm in extension.
We teach the athletes to finish with a follow through like they were throwing a ball. Notice her hand/arm finishing in front of her body with great trunk rotation to take pressure off her shoulder.
This is from over 6 years ago, but I am still teaching the same principles to the kids I coach today. I like to use teaching cues along with a progression. In this video, I demonstrate with a tennis ball to get the athletes arm/body moving in the right direction before serving.
I use teaching cues for all of the basic volleyball skills - Passing, Serving, Setting, Attacking, and Blocking.
