November 6, 2014
"The Healdsburg girls are just coming off of an exciting school volleyball season, many are moving into club ball, and all who participated in the Coach Houser's STAR camp at Analy High School last year agreed that it exponentially increased their skills and they want to do it again! Some of us are even talking about doing a road trip to track down Coach Houser anywhere in the country if he is not coming back to the west coast. So…….are you? Hope so! Let us know if you need any additional parent support to make this happen this year, or maybe even expand the camp to two weeks?"
