December 7, 2022.  "My daughter actually made a travel volleyball team locally here. don’t think she would of made the team without having been with you majority of the summer last year !! You have a very well organized greased team with skill set that exceeds anything or anyone else i have ever seen. girls like mine can learn a lot even if they have attention problems because you make it fun. wish more people would adopted this fun—- learning method Maybe one day"

April 22, 2021.  Thank you for believing in her. We have 'used' you a lot over the last year when she would get down.... 'Do you believe Coach Houser? He believs in you. Why don't you?' "

September 15, 2020.  "My daughter is attending clinics are the local club. She had a coach approach her to make sure she is trying out for a club team. All her hard work is paying off. You guys are great! "Thank you for believing in her. We have 'used' you a lot over the last year when she would get down.... 'Do you believe Coach Houser? He believs in you. Why don't you?' ""

December 5, 2019.  "My daughter has moved forward in college and is now pursuing her PhD. You helped molded this wonderful young lady. Both my wife and I thank you for teaching her to reach beyond her abilities."

November 23, 2018.  "I'm very thankful for you! Idk what I'd do without you! Thanks for helping me in my volleyball career and pushing myself and my teammates to be the best players we can be. Thanks for not only being a coach and instructor but also someone we can trust and know. Hope u had a great day and Happy Thanksgiving!!!"

January 28, 2018.  "I can tell you that by watching the girls on the current team, you can tell they’ve been coached by you. They are smart on the court and they know how to get a side out when it’s crucial. It stands out. So thanks again for all you’ve done for them! What can I say, you’re the best. Actually I say it ALOT."

May 5, 2016.  "Thank YOU for all you have done to help make this a season to remember! It’s unbelievable how far they have come as a team. These girls have learned so much from you. My daughter already misses being out there with her team! She would like to get back into the gym very soon!"

February 9, 2016.   "A few of the parents were commenting on how much my daughter's teammate's game has improved (her timing, her patience waiting on the ball, her not "palming" the ball) and someone said that she had been working with you. I said "well that explains it"! It's unbelievable how much she has improved. Excellent work, coach! You're amazing!!"

July 30, 2015  "No matter what lies ahead, most of her positive and happy volleyball memories are with u. Thank you for being a great mentor and role model for my baby!!"

July 30, 2015  "No matter what lies ahead, most of her positive and happy volleyball memories are with u. Thank you for being a great mentor and role model for my baby!!"

April 15, 2013.   My daughter attended the hitting clinic last Tuesday night. I thought that the instruction you provided at the clinic was excellent. In fact, I wrote down the key points that you taught as soon as I got home, and I have been working with my daughter on what you taught that night!!

December 21, 2012.   I just wanted to let you know that I verbally committed today! I wanted to say thank you for all the help along the way. I would not be half the player I was without your coaching and continued support! Thank you so much again, it means the world to me :) I would also love it if you came to my signing if you want to and can make it... It will be sometime in January but I don't know the exact date yet, I'll let you know when we schedule it!!

February 2, 2011.    "Your genuine kindness and caring (for a total stranger!) speaks volumes about the type of person you are, and is like a breath of fresh air.   Just wanted to say thanks again."

April 18,  2010.    "My daughter has a very special place for you in her heart. You're blessed w/ a natural gift of knowing how to coach & teach teenagers. You're a legend that will never be forgotten. Thank you & your assistants for an amazing season."

February 20, 2010.      "Tom:   I am so thankful that you and your staff are filling the need to start our 'future' volleyball stars earlier with the VIP training.  I hope that you continue this program throughout the year.  Just think of the players the Roanoke area will produce if we continue to start their exposure to correct technique in elementary school, instead of middle school."   Michelle Newberry

March 24, 2009.     "My daughter wanted me to tell you that she loves you and loves working with you. Another mom and I were watching your last game at the Bid Tournament and she commented on how great you are at building a "team" as well as the individual player. Keep on doing what you do best - the volleyball world is blessed to have an asset like you in it!!   Yes, there is more than just instruction!  There's team!!"   Amy Amerell

November 9, 2008.    "You have been a great POSITIVE help for my daughter.  We all love your coaching style! You definitely have a gift!!!"

December 30, 2008.    "I cannot thank you enough for all of the time you have spent with Morgan teaching her about volleyball , a good attitude, team building & the importance of character. She listens to every word. Your experience as a teacher, coach, parent & writer have all proved to be great life lessons that kids need to hear today (not just from the parents)."   Lee Robison, mother of Morgan, PH c/o '13

 August 21, 2007.   My daughter has still not stopped talking about you, Maggie, Devyn, Scott, etc.....She absolutely loved the camp at Red Lion!   My daughter learned so much in such a short period of time thanks to your camp and thank you for your site with so much information.  I hope you enjoyed your trip enough to consider coming again!  Your kindnesses and your commitment to our girls and to the sport are and were so very much appreciated.  I'm sorry I didn't get an opportunity to meet any of you in person to welcome you.  I'm sure you have received many replies by now. Thank you again for blessing us in such an awesome way.  Our best to you, your assistants, your team and your family.

November 2, 2006.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate your email reply. It really did help to calm the panic I have been feeling!  Thank you for giving me the information to get started. We will definitely contact you and let you know how things turn out!  I also wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the articles on your website.   Reading your articles really helped me keep things in perspective. I will absolutely recommend it to all the parents on the Varsity and JV teams. Thanks again for taking so much time to help us. Your love of kids and volleyball is evident from your website and your articles. I can't get over how much time you took just to reply to me. A complete stranger!   Your players & parents are very lucky to have you as their coach!
