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 an equal playing time middle school, 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!)

"I had a great birthday at College Expectations. I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else!"

July 1, 2017
"Coach Houser- thank you so much for accepting me into College Expectations. I've felt my confidence and skills as a player grow so much in the past few days and I've learned more than I ever have from any other coach. The coaches you brought in are exceptional and I'm so glad I get to work with them. Thank you."

July 1, 2017
Coach, Thank you so much for allowing my daughter to attend College Expectations. She has nothing but good things to say about all of the coaches. And she says that she is learning new things which is what we want. And she told me that she loves the passion you have for volleyball. That you both have in common. She eats, sleeps and lives volleyball. We came out and watched the last session last night. And we will attend the tournament on Sunday. Look forward to meeting you. Thank you again!
Volleyball Mom"
