OUR COACH: PETER BRISTOTTE

Coach Peter (born and raised in Campinas, Sao Paulo - Brazil) had led numerous young athletes to the highest possible level in his home country: several of his former players became pro volleyball athletes, a few others have played for the Brazilian National Youth and Adult teams (and won several international competitions, such as one VNL finalists, Olypmics Qualifying Champions, Youth World Championship and a few Youth Pan-American Championships) and many others have been granted scholarships to play volleyball in colleges and universities in the US.
 
Considered a strategist by his fellow coaches, Peter has the cool, calculating mind of a chess player regarding the development of both offensive and defensive tactics. He also devotes considerable amount of time on improving his athletes' fundamentals regardless of the age or level of play. If you enter the gym while he runs his practices you will see that a meticulous plan was made and athletes will be focusing a lot on ball control during the drills, working hard during conditioning sessions, and that they are a tough minded team. All of this is key to build a cohesive team and a strong-minded athlete.
 
Coach Peter developed his carreer with young athletes, but he also has the expertise to work with adult teams as well. Our club director has the knowledge, the expertise, and the experience to help us to develop one of the strongest programs in VA.
 
Here are some of his credentials:
 
- Volleyball Coach since 2005; 
BSc in Sports Sciences;
- MSc in Volleyball Training;
- MSc in Sports Biochemistry, Physiology, Training and Nutrition;
- Certified Coach Level III by the Brazilian Volleyball Confederation/FIVB
 
In addition to the volleyball credentials and awards, Coach Peter is also a CrossFit Trainer and Olympic Weightlifting Coach, certified by the CrossFit Inc. and the USA Weightlifting, respectively.
