This is College Expectations!
Our college coaches say, "We will work on transition/wash/game like drills. Situations where you have to score. Not only emphasize the three skills, but do them with a kill. Heavy emphasis on finishing points and not just 'playing correctly'. Let's work on terminating rallies! If they want to play in college that's what I want to teach them this summer!"


We will be using the Sweet Briar College gym in 2014. It's an incredible facility!!

More info about SBC can be found at the bottom of this page.


What was the difference between
High Expectations and College Expectations.

A High Exp. camper needed to be at least:
* a rising 8th grader, with;
* three seasons of competitive ball. 

A College Exp. camper needed to be at least:
* a rising freshman, with;
* five seasons of competitive ball.

(a "season" does not include equal playing time middle school ball, a rec league, a county league, or a summer league.
If your daughter doesn't have the minimum requirements, don't give up yet. We sometimes make special exemptions for outstanding athletes....tell us about your daughter and we may admit her!)
