Step Back Drill:
For beginners it is difficult to simply get the ball over the net. In order to progressively serve from the end line have the player start from the ten foot line. Serve several times until the player feel confident in their serve then have them take a step or two back and serve from there. Again have them serve several times until the player feels confident then have them take another step or two back so on and so forth until they get to the end line. This drill will also help the players to hit the ball in a linear motion. Out of the two linear motions the ball should have a curvilinear motion because the ball has to land within the end lines and side lines. The agonist muscles to flex the shoulder in order to serve are anterior deltoid and coracobrachialis, while the abductor muscles are middle deltoid, supraspinatus, and biceps brachii.
