  • An Analysis of the Volleyball Jump Serve – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    of the hips and knees and stretch the muscles prior to the contraction for the jump It has been reported that a longer run up is related to a higher jump in spiking with skilled volleyball players so those servers using a 4 step approach to the serve have the potential to jump higher Khayambashi 1977 Maxwell Bratton et al 1980 The velocity of the body s center of gravity forward into the serve will be added to the velocity imparted to the ball from the arm and trunk movements The faster the run up the faster the horizontal velocity of the CG at impact and the faster the ball will leave the hand Figure 5 Horizontal CG velocities of 2 85 m s 1 have been reported for the jump serve of male collegiate volleyball players Tant and Witte 1991 Figure 5 Long step onto the left foot to start the run up A longer step is related to a faster run up a faster run up is related to a higher jump and a faster serve The weight is maintained over the right foot during the toss and it is followed by a longer step onto the left foot following release The step onto the left foot is critical in attaining a high horizontal speed at takeoff and should be a long and explosive step The step from the left foot back onto the right foot is the longest step of the run up and often covers a distance of up to 80 of the server s standing height This long step onto the right foot is known as the plant step and the purpose of this step is to provide the braking forces for the run up and allow the athlete to gather and prepare for takeoff The longer this step the more skilled the server and the greater time and distance the server has to decelerate his forward velocity and prepare to takeoff upwards Alexander and Seaborn 1980 The right foot lands on the heel first and then the weight is taken over the whole foot as the knee and hip are flexed The right foot plant is followed by deep flexion on this support leg in preparation for the jump to follow During this step the left foot is brought through to a position in front of the planted right foot often up to 50 cm in front of the right foot As the left foot is planted it is rotated toward the midline using hip medial rotation so that the toe is pointing to the sideline or the foot is almost parallel to the end line of the court This position allows the left foot and leg to act as an effective brake for the forward momentum of the run up as well it positions the trunk at an angle to the net to prepare for trunk rotation into the serve It has been reported that the right leg is the dominant leg for most right handed spikers and provides a greater amount of the total force for the takeoff in the spike jump Wielki and Dangre 1985 This is also the case for jump serving As the athlete steps onto the right foot the arms are left behind the body in extreme shoulder hyperextension the arms should be horizontal or even past the horizontal to attain the maximum position for the arm swing forward Figure 6 The athlete in the attached photo has the arms hyperextended to an angle of 30º above the horizontal Figure 6 First contact with the heel of the right foot should correspond with the position of maximum shoulder hyperextension Maximum shoulder hyperextension is accompanied by trunk flexion that increases the range of shoulder extension The optimal range of trunk flexion during the arm swing is in the range of 20º from the vertical Decreased ranges of motion in the trunk flexion or shoulder hyperextension may lead to timing problems with the arm swing during takeoff The arm swing may then be completed too soon in the jump takeoff and provides little force to increase ground reaction forces during takeoff Figure 6 Plant step onto the right leg heel strikes first and shoulders in maximum hyperextension above the horizontal trunk leaning forward From this hyperextended position the arms are swung forward downward and upward in front of the body in order to provide increased vertical ground reaction forces for the jump As well the trunk moves from flexion to extension and this forceful trunk extension will also increase the ground reaction forces As the arms and trunk are accelerated upwards they push down on the proximal joints which increase the downward forces on the floor and the upward ground reaction forces acting on the athlete The arms should reach near maximum angular velocity as they reach the vertical position beside the body Figure 7 they are then accelerated upward to a position in which the upper arms are pointing forward or slightly upward at takeoff The speed and range of motion of the arm swing during takeoff is an important factor in increased jumping skill and top jump servers have a longer and faster double arm swing during takeoff A longer arm back swing is often accompanied by increased trunk flexion as both of these movements can help to increase the height of the jump by increasing ground reaction forces during forceful shoulder flexion and trunk extension It is notable that skilled servers perform the upward swing of the arms while the flexed knees are starting to extend so that the arm swing can contribute to the ground reaction forces acting upward on the server Figure 7 Final left foot plant prior to takeoff Foot planted well ahead of the right foot at an angle to the end line arm swing nearing completion Takeoff When both feet are planted for the takeoff the extension of the legs and trunk begins in order to drive the body upwards for the serve The back leg the right leg will extend first as the body is still moving forward over this leg at takeoff The right leg reaches full extension prior to the left leg suggesting that the right leg makes a significant contribution to vertical velocity at takeoff in the jump for the spike serve The arm swing upward is completed prior to extension of the legs since the arm swing makes a contribution to ground reaction forces early in the takeoff before leg extension has occurred The end of the upward motion of the arms may also transfer vertical momentum to the rest of the body for take off As the leg extension is occurring the trunk is also extending to maximize the ground forces The timing of the joint movements during the takeoff consists of shoulder flexion trunk extension and hip and knee extension The final movement to increase jump height is ankle plantarflexion as the contribution of the calf muscles in jump height is significant Figure 8 The more extended the body at takeoff the higher the server will jump as the height of the CG at takeoff contributes to maximum jump height The CG at takeoff is raised in the body by full trunk and leg extension and having the arms raised to a near vertical position at takeoff A skilled jumper can attain 60 of their total jump height by the increasing the height of the CG at takeoff Figure 8 Instant of takeoff for the serve the left foot is last to leave the floor both legs are extended arms are extended upward body almost vertical The mean vertical velocity of the center of gravity at takeoff for back row spikers was reported to be 3 59 m s 1 and the height of the jump was 0 62 m Coleman 1993 Huang Liu et al 2005 The mean horizontal velocity at takeoff was found to be 3 23 m s 1 In a related study of the jump serve the mean horizontal and vertical velocities for the center of mass at takeoff were reported to be somewhat less at 2 76 and 2 77 m s 1 respectively Coleman 2005 The mean values for the top servers in the present study were horizontal velocities of 4 20 m s 1 at right foot plant and 3 65 m s 1 vertical velocity at takeoff The center of mass velocity values at ball impact ranged from 0 33 to 2 76 m s 1 indicating that some servers hit the ball on the way down and others on the way up fact also noted by Coleman 1993 in front row spiking Airborne Phase Backswing At takeoff the server will begin the backswing movements in order to place the hitting arm in an optimal position for striking the ball The hitting arm will move from a position elevated in front of the athlete to a position behind the athlete in the backswing position The hitting arm is moved back in one of two ways Oka Okamoto et al 1975 it can either drop down to a position below the shoulder joint and move backward in a low position with the hand at about hip level or it can remain in a position with the upper arm parallel to the floor as it is moved backward The backward movement of the hitting arm is accompanied by rotation of the trunk from a position facing the net to a position sideways to the net In a skilled server the trunk must move as a two segment model so that the shoulder girdle and the pelvic girdle hips move as separate segments In the volleyball serve as the upper body is rotated sideways on the backswing the hips are rotated further forward in order to take up the torques around the longitudinal axis produced by the shoulders It is important here to review Newton s Third Law of Angular Motion Hay 1993 which states that in an airborne body the sum of the torques must remain constant When body parts move in one direction while airborne other body parts must move in the opposite direction to ensure the sum of the action and reaction torques around any axis remain constant As the shoulders are rotated backwards to a position sideways to the net clockwise torque the hips and the attached legs are rotated further forward to face the net counterclockwise torque to ensure the sum of the torques around the longitudinal axis is constant Top servers commonly exhibit this rotation of the pelvis forward to the left to squarely face the net while the shoulders are moving backward to the right for the arm backswing Figure 9 Figure 9 Serving arm is moved back behind the body in a low position with the upper arm adducted closer to the trunk leads to greater shoulder medial rotation in this phase Figure 10 Serving arm is moved back behind the body in a high position with the upper arm abducted past 90 degrees to the trunk and less medial rotation Figure 11 Shoulder girdle rotation to the right is accompanied by pelvic hip rotation to the left both shoulders are medially rotated R wrist flexed and lower arm pronated The trunk is not only rotating around the longitudinal axis it is also rotating around the transverse left to right axis as it undergoes trunk flexion extension during the serve As the trunk is rotated sideways to the right it is also extended and even hyperextended during the backswing This hyperextension of the trunk is accompanied by hyperextension of the hips as the trunk and legs undergo action reaction movements around the left right axis As the hitter approaches peak height of the jump the legs assume a position of maximal hip hyperextension and knee flexion Figure 12 During the forward movements of the hitting arm the legs are forcefully flexed at the hip and the knees are extended This forceful leg movement may assist in the forceful flexion of the trunk again using the action reaction in the air principle The trunk hyperextension and rotation stretches the abdominal muscles of the trunk preparing them for the strong contraction producing the flexion and rotation to the left of the trunk during the serve At the point of maximum knee flexion the trunk is maximally rotated back to the right and the serving arm is abducted and medially rotated in preparation for the lateral rotation of the backswing The ability of some players to assume this position of shoulder medial rotation Figure 12 may be limited by rotator cuff injury which could restrict this range of motion Figure 12 Flexed knees and upper trunk rotation to the right as hips rotate left to face the net squarely as server approaches peak height A further advantage of the flexed knees and trunk hyperextension movement is that they help to stabilize the head during the airborne movements of the serve As the legs are flexed behind the server and the arms are raised for the hit the center of gravity CG moves upward in the trunk As the CG is moving up in the trunk and then moving back down in the trunk during the hit the head remains in a level position for an extended period of time Bishop and Hay 1979 This is an advantage for the skilled server as it allows the head to be stationary for the important phase of tracking and contacting the volleyball This ability to keep the head still vertically at the top of the jump while the CG moves in the trunk is called hanging in the air and has been documented in skilled basketball jump shooters Close examination of the skilled server reveals that the head does indeed remain stationary in the vertical plane during the phase just before and during contact with the ball As the shoulders are rotated sideways to the right the hitting shoulder undergoes medial rotation in order to stretch the lateral rotators for the backswing Skilled servers will attain a position of shoulder medial rotation in which the palm of the hand is facing downward during the trunk rotation and backswing of the hitting arm As the shoulder girdle begins to rotate forward the hitting shoulder moves into a position of maximal lateral rotation in which the palm and the upper arm face upwards The more forceful the trunk rotation forwards the greater the range of lateral rotation the hitting shoulder moves into prior to the hit The shoulder girdle literally moves out from under the hitting arm and leaves the hitting arm and hand behind the trunk in a position of maximal lateral rotation Maximal lateral rotation is characterized by the forearm in a position parallel to the floor or in extreme cases even past parallel to the floor This position of maximal shoulder lateral rotation places the medial rotators and the elbow extensors on a stretch prior to their important contribution to hand speed Figure 13 Figure 13 Position of maximal lateral rotation places the shoulder medial rotators on a stretch trunk is tilted to the left and hyperextended while it is squarely facing forward Airborne Phase Forward Swing From the position of trunk hyperextension and rotation to the right the shoulder girdle will rotate forcefully to the left and move into flexion These forceful trunk movements make an important contribution to hand speed at impact with the ball As the trunk and shoulder girdle rotate forward into the hit the hitting arm moves further backward into lateral rotation and stretches the medial rotators Figure 15 The trunk then starts to rotate forward and as the trunk approaches the forward facing position the arm begins to make its contribution to the speed of the hand The first movement that occurs in the hitting arm is shoulder medial rotation and horizontal adduction followed by elbow extension lower arm pronation wrist flexion and wrist adduction A report on the variables of spiking reported that in a study of spike servers from the UK mean elbow angular velocity prior to impact was found to be 1363 deg s 1 suggesting the importance of elbow velocity in this skill Coleman 2005 The ball is contacted with a cupped relaxed hand just as the elbow completes its extension The wrist is flexing and the hand is rotating forward due to pronation and wrist adduction Prsala 1981 The velocity of the hand at contact is one of the most important variables in the jump serve as the faster the hand velocity the faster the ball velocity up to a point The ball will always leave the hand at a faster velocity than that of the hand due to the transfer of momentum from the heavier hand and arm to the lighter volleyball A study of the serve of collegiate male volleyball players revealed that the players hand traveled at 13 6 m s 1 prior to contact while the ball left the hand at 19 7 m s 1 Tant Greene et al 1993 When compared to the spike in which the player s hand traveled at 15 4 m s 1 and the ball left the hand at 22 4 m s 1 suggesting that the velocity of the hand is close to 70 of the velocity of the ball after impact Tant Greene et al 1993 A more recent study reported that hand speed at impact for the jump serve was 16 1 m s 1 for a group of elite UK players while post impact ball speed was 23 7 m s 1 Coleman 2005 a value again close to 70 In the current study the ball velocity at impact for a group of nine of the top players averaged 23 48 m s 1 with a peak value of 24 24 m s 1 Figure 14 As shoulder girdle rotates to the right the hips rotate forward to the left to

  • Preseason – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    Preseason is where champions are born For coaches and players alike it is an exciting and anxious time and I often rely on mentors and words of wisdom to strengthen me The richest experiences in our lives aren t when we are clamoring for validity from others but when we re listening to our own voice doing something that matters doing it well and doing it in the service of a cause larger than ourselves The path to mastery is not much fun Mastery often involves working and working and showing little improvement perhaps with a few moments of flow pulling you along then making little progress and then working and working on that new slightly higher plateau again It s a grueling process to be sure But that s not the problem that s the solution One of my favorite Chinese Proverbs is The Journey is the Reward I look forward to the reward and knowledge I develop this preseason with Winthrop s new Head Coach Julie Torbett Coaches often coach the way they were coached I assume I am going to see quite a bit of Penn State and Russ Rose influences in training and technique this season My mind is open my spirit rekindled Winthrop Volleyball a Championship Tradition Let s go Share this Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Click to share on Facebook Opens in new window Click to share on Google Opens in new window Related volleyball preseason 2011 08 03 Chuck Rey tweet Previous BP Oil Spill One Year Later Next 133 Volleyball Digs in 3 Minutes 2 comments Bill Palmer August 12 2011 at 3 44 pm SOOOO true Coach Rey Good insight THE JOURNEY I certainly understand this more now as a non athlete than when I was
