Why A STAR Camp?

Coach Houser's STAR camps are directed by professional camp
 instructors who do this every summer, week after week, year after year.  

We know the high school game and we work with teenage girls year round.   Sure we could double our price, or cut the time in half, or send "staff" to direct this camp; but, we believe you deserve better.
