"This week at camp was by far the MOST I have learned in a 3 & 1/2 days! These coaches came out and showed us how to love the sport of volleyball, why to & how to appreciate your team and coach, and to leave all things aside that would effect your team. Thank y'all so much for coming out and teaching us! It was such a privilege to have y'all, and I hope y'all do good with y'all's seasons as well!"

One final time:  "TOGETHER WE WILL!!" 

"What an amazing week of volleyball camp it has been! Thanks again to Tom Houser and his assistants for coming to Gretna and working with the girls! They learned so much and showed so much improvement in just a few days! I am so proud of all of my Gretna girls for the hard work they put in this week!
