How can I learn to serve a jump serve?

The Jump Serve, Part 2

Step Two in jump serving involves knowing your own abilities. If you can't jump high enough to get above the net on your spikes, chances are, you're not going to be a good jump server.

You also need to be strong, because your "spike," (which is essentially what a jump serve is) is coming from more than 30 feet behind the net. So you're going to have to crank the ball hard in order to get it over the net at all. If you're not especially strong, you'd better stick with another type of serve.
