Review

"Aggressive Volleyball is bursting with creative, challenging, and unique concepts and drills. This book is the perfect tool for anyone, coaches and players alike, wanting to take their team to the next level."

Jackie Simpson
2007 All-American Volleyball Player


"In Aggressive Volleyball, Pete Waite—one of the best coaches in the sport today—shares skills, concepts, and techniques from his 20 years of experience in the game. This book is a must-read for both young and experienced coaches alike."

Rick Capone
Editor of AVCA's Coaching Volleyball magazine

About the Author

Pete Waite has led his Wisconsin Badgers to a record of 228-67 (.773). Qualifying for the NCAA championship tournament in each of Waite's nine seasons, Wisconsin was national runner-up in 2000; finished in the top eight in 2004 and 2005; advanced to the Sweet 16 in 2001 and 2006; and saw second-round action in 1999, 2002, 2003, and 2007. In the Big Ten, the Badgers won league titles in 2000 and 2001 and were runners-up in 1999, 2002, 2005, and 2007.

At 494-169 (.745) in 20 years overall, including 11 years at Northern Illinois, Waite ranks 13th among active Division I head coaches in winning percentage. He has been conference coach of the year seven times in four different conferences, winning 10 conference championships. Statistically, Waite's teams consistently rank high nationally in the major categories (hitting percentage, assists, kills, and blocks), indicating not only a skilled team but also an aggressive style of play.

Pete lives in Madison, Wisconsin.

In this book, Pete has given coaches and players of all levels a great perspective on the complete game of volleyball. The aggressive/competitive spin he has emphasized hasn't been addressed in other books on the market and makes for a great read.

I am a true believer that knowledge is power! My daughter's high school volleyball team started the season with a new coach. Not just new to them but new to coaching varsity level volleyball. Early in the season, I could see areas where they needed to grow as players and he as a coach. One day I came across this book on Amazon and knew this was the answer.

I purchased this book as a way to help the coach and it worked! For instance, the section on using time-outs as a strategy, made a huge difference! The team went from giving up eight straight points to breaking a serve after only three points. The players attitudes and demeanor after time-outs changed as well. They went from a defeatist attitude after a time-out to one of jubilation and determination, all due to the teachings in this book.

The tips and strategies found in Agressive Volleyball are thorough in their teaching of not only the mechanics of volleyball but also the mental attitude needed to coach and play the sport. Just about every strategy is followed by graphics to help illustrate the concept presented, couple this with the book's 'Tip from the Top' insertions and you get a great resource for coaches, parents, and players.

I purchased this book when I learned that the original book I wanted to purchase was on back order. It was a huge surprise!!! I didn't expect much, but was treated with content that was easy to read and extremely informative. It covers a vast amount of situations that arise in the sport. Great book!!!!

In addition to the comments by other reviewers, I'd like to note that at the end of each section there are a few drills that tie in to the chapter's theme. Overall I found the quality of the drills to be pretty good and fairly original.

This is a great book for both beginner and advanced coaches - lots of ideas about how to manage your team, how to motivate them, and how to encourage your players to communicate and motivate themselves.
