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 bal

(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!)

"My daughter said 'They really should make this camp a week long!' Then later she said, 'I wish this camp was a whole month.....but we'd run out of pizza money.' " hahaha

Thanks for the photos and info. My daughter had a great time!!!

My daughter LOVED the camp and I think she got a lot out of it! She just went on and on about how glad she was that she went. :) It appears that the only other High Expectations Camp you have will be in another state. SHOOT!!!

June 29, 2016
My daughter absolutely loved your camp and would love to do both next year. She genuinely felt she learned so much from you as well as all of the other coaches. Out of all prior camps she had attended, she most appreciated the camper/coach ratio as well as the individual lessons this camp provided! To be honest, the only reason we aren't doing both camps back to back is because we already had a family beach trip to Myrtle planned. (Something we will rethink next year)!

Thanks so much for having my daughter this past weekend at camp. She loved it! Especially loved the coaches!!

My daughter, Helen Dorothea, loved your camp and thanks you profusely!!! Today, she told me on the long, long trip back home that she learned more at your camp than during her entire last club season.!!

"I'll be sure to come back this summer! I learned a lot from your camps! Pretty much has taught me everything I know so far."
This is from a girl who came to both Expectations Camps one summer.  Then didn't come to either the next. 

"The High Expectations Camp was the best camp that I have been involved with - the end of camp tournament was a true 'tournament' feel with excellent play - the girls showed vast improvement. I hope to see the same again."
Barry Kane, host of 2011, 2012 and 2013 High and Maximum Expectations Camps.
