After the camp!
"Thank you for providing this wonderful opportunity for my daughter, she had a blast and it was a great week."

"Thank you Coach Houser for all your work with the girls. I heard nothing but great comments from the kids and the parents.

"You have a gift for inspiring the kids with enthusiasm and excitement for the game of volleyball. Their skill level soared during the week. Thank you for using that gift with the girls in Sonoma County. We've been blessed. And to your assistants Aidan and Katey:  Ladies, you have NO idea the impact you have on the girls. You are both so very skilled and talented players and teachers, but I tell you, your character, integrity and compassion speak volumes. I am so proud of you ladies and I am so glad that you are role models to my daughter. I am so very grateful for you two. "

After the camp!

"Such a great experience for my daughter. She's gonna sleep for a week!"

"Thanks you guys for coming to Sonoma County and investing in our girls. You guys are the best!"

"My daugthter and I can't thank you enough for the opportunity to learn from you and your coaches. She had an incredible time and can't wait for next year!
She's really confident and looking forward to her first VB season in middle school :o) And thanks to Coach Lochert for coordination and hosting this amazing camp!!
Wishing you all the best of luck with your other camps and team!!!"

"Coach Houser, I'm so glad you got back to the camp members. You and your staff were "awesome" would be the perfect fit to do an expectations camp along with regular camp as well. It would be a hit! My daughter very much enjoyed your camp even though just going into 7th grade. You have helped her to become a better player and be ready for an advanced group learning. Can't wait for next year already. Good Luck!
p.s. Your coaching is invaluable."

"The Healdsburg girls are just coming off of an exciting school volleyball season, many are moving into club ball, and all who participated in the Coach Houser's STAR camp at Analy High School last year agreed that it exponentially increased their skills and they want to do it again! Some of us are even talking about doing a road trip to track down Coach Houser anywhere in the country if he is not coming back to the west coast. So…….are you? Hope so! Let us know if you need any additional parent support to make this happen this year, or maybe even expand the camp to two weeks?"
