Our Promise Of Camp Quality!

When your daughter attends an elite camp, you expect the quality experience that was advertised.

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!


"Coach Houser shows so much personal interest in each player that he meets and works with, and he learns what that individual needs to grow in the sport. He brings in his own coaches to Expectations that he knows will help your daughters learn better skills. I'm sure this camp will be beneficial to anyone that is able to attend."
