Our Promise Of Camp Quality!

When your daughter attends an elite camp, you expect the quality experience that was advertised. You very often don't get it.

Expectations Camps are indeed elite camps in both name & substance. We evaulate every applicant. Individually. No athlete will be accpted unless my staff thinks she can learn, compete and succeed. We promise.

The 1:4 coach to camper ratio is unmatched in the USA. Then there's the price, the facility, the knowledge, the competition, the seminars....I could go on and on!

With STAR Volleyball Services, fulfilling our word and maintaining your trust is our business. Your family will love it because you will get exactly what you expected. We hope you get even more. That's our promise.


Pictures from the 2010 - 2022 camps are on our camp Facebook page! Please visit us here.


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!"
