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