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!"

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. But, if an athlete doesn't have the minimum requirements, contact us. We sometimes make special exemptions for outstanding athletes....tell us about your daughter....send us video....and we may admit her!)


This is all feedback in the few hours after the 2016 camp ended!

"Hey Coach Houser thank you for another great camp! My daughter said she had a great time! "

"Our daughter told us on the way home that she was now disappointed that she didn't stay overnight. I think she will definitely stay overnight next year and experience the some of the bonding she missed out on. Look forward to seeing you for more lessons soon. You are a great coach and your love for the game the girls is obvious. Great job!"


"That was by far the best camp we have ever been to! Thank you and your coaches for pushing my daughter to do new things and work harder. She learned so much!"

"Awesome camp Coach, it was a wonderful experience for not only our daughter but the other girls that we spoke to as well. You should be proud. Thanks so much."


"Thanks again for everything. They had sooo much fun. Sad that next year is our last!  "

"Thanks coach! I had so much fun at camp this week and learned so much!"

"Our daughter had a great time at camp and loved working with all the coaches. She is looking forward to the VIP scrimmage on July 31 + the 2 hr lesson with you that day as well."

"My dauthter really enjoyed learning from you and the other coaches and players. It was a great first, overnight client opportunity for her and glad that her team played well together."

"Thank you so much for a great experience for my daughter.  She had a great time and learned a lot during the camp.""
