Serve a Volleyball Zone 2. I like to serve zone 2 for when the opponent wants to run a slide. It's easier to run a slide off of a pass coming from zone 4 or 5, so I prefer to serve the left side of the court if I know for sure the opponent is wanting to run a slide in that particular rotation.

You’ll have 3 players in the frontcourt, and 3 in the back. That means the players in positions 3 and 2 will always be in that order when rotating. This has little to do with what position a player plays, such as a libero, outside hitter, etc. You have to maintain these positions till the ball is served.
