If they pick "serve" then they will be "awarded" the opportunity to serve first during the first set of the match. For the subsequent sets, teams will alternate who serves first. So if Team A won the coin toss and served first the first set, then Team B will automatically begin the second set with the serve.
In both indoor and beach volleyball, it’s legal to return the serve to the opponent’s side directly (so long as you don’t violate the rules mentioned above). That can mean passing (bumping) the ball back over.
The serve is always made by the team that previously earned a point. If team A has just won a point, they serve. If they serve and win a point again, they serve again and again until the opposing team eventually earns a point. In short, the team who earned the point gains the right to serve. How do we know which player of the team serves?
The ball is put in play with a service, hit by the server over the net to the opponents. The rally continues until the ball is grounded on the playing court, goes "out" or a team fails to return it properly. In Volleyball, the team winning a rally scores a point (Rally Point System).
When a serve hits the top of the net and crosses to the opposing team’s side it is considered good. If the ball falls back onto the serving team’s side then the ball changes possession. Both of these are called “let serves.” Service Scoring. Under service scoring, only the team that is serving is allowed to score points.
Katie Browling. , High School Volleyball Captain. Answered 4 years ago. The returning team can directly return a serve, but not as an attack. What this means is they can return the serve as a free ball, which is a pass or set, but not as a spike. It's against the rules to attack serve.
There are some minor volleyball rule differences regarding the toss before the serve. In FIVB, university and high school matches, the server must hit the ball within 8 seconds after the referee whistles for service, and only one toss is allowed.
When your team serves and wins the point, the same player will keep serving. Then each time your team regains possession of the service by winning the rally, your team rotates and whoever moves into that position will be the next server. 2.
