Good afternoon!
Thanks for all the info!  Wow, that's very interesting.  
Yes, post some video on YouTube, if you can get your parents' permission.
Serve about 10 to 15 balls.  
You can also video hitting, setting, etc.  I'll watch it and tell you what I think.
Here is my YouTube site:
If you want to perfect your hitting, watching Jenny Clark and the Westover Christian videos.
The serving videos are good also.
