I've been a longtime reader of the authors blog at [...] and picked up the kindle version of the book the day it was released. It's an absolutely must-have for any parent who has a kid that hopes to play volleyball in college. From a parent's perspective, the author's recruiting calendar is a fabulous resource and very helpful to keep things in perspective so you can help your child move the process along at an appropriate pace while still allowing her/him to do what's most important - enjoy the ride and continue to love the sport!

Do you have a teenage daughter, who lives, breathes, eats, sleeps, etc. volleyball? One who plays at the high school varsity level, plays club volleyball and who travels to skill camps to improve her game?

Buy this book!

Do you have a volleyball-obsessed daughter nearing the end of her high school volleyball career, showing enough talent, drive, athleticism and willingness to work hard to succeed, and who has expressed an interest in playing the sport at the college level? And you've scratched your head, wondering, how do I go about seeking a volleyball scholarship?

Buy this book!

"The College Volleyball Coach" (yes, he/she remains anonymous) covers a wide range of details and information in explaining how to translate those "wishes" into an actual, honest-to-goodness offer from a college or university (from Division I to NAIA and junior colleges) for you daughter to become a true student-athlete. The recruiting calendar is very valuable, showing you just where you and your daughter should be in the recruiting process during each year of high school. The author shows you what you should be including in your contacts with colleges.

And the advice offered throughout this book is also valuable; some of the advice may be nothing more than common sense, but placed in the context of seeking a scholarship it's priceless. Listen to this: "there is always a spot open [on college volleyball teams] for good passers, whether it be as a back-row sub or all around player." "Stars" who can bring a massive kill are no more valuable than someone on the back row who can put a pass accurately on the head of a setter. This and other "no brainer" advice appear throughout this book and may cause you to rethink how you view your daughter's skills and talents when "presenting" her to college coaches.

Buy this book! It could use with some judicious editing and organization, but the information contained within is nonetheless priceless.

Very good insight into the college volleyball recruiting process. Includes checklists for grades 9-12 for those desiring to play beyond high school. As a club and high school coach, will probably be an invaluable tool to help guide Prospective Student Athletes.

This book is a critical tool for anyone who aspires to play volleyball at the collegiate level. For most young athletes, getting sucessfully recruited to play in college is a daunting process. Knowlege is power - them more you know about, and understand the process the more prepared you will be to navigate through it. The author provides a wealth of insider access and advise to help you prepare for and take control of the recruitment process.

I have read this book cover to cover twice, and have loaded it with notes, highlighted passages, and dog-eared pages. I consider it a guide book of sorts, and a well loved addition to our library.

I believe volleyball is a up-and-coming womens sport that in many ways offers greater recruitment opportunities than other traditional womens sports (like basketball). I you are a parent of a talented young volleyball player, you owe it to them to become educated on the recruiting process so that you may help them to fufill their dreams. Consider this book a small but in valuable investment in your perspective athlete's future.

As an avid reader of Coach's blog I anxiously waited for the release of this book. It is a must have for parents, players, coaches and Club Directors who are navigating the college recruiting process. Not only does it provide practical advice in putting together a year by year recruiting plan - it keeps parents grounded by reminding them volleyball first and foremost should be fun.

If your daughter is interested in playing college volleyball - buy this book.
