Coach Houser:   I just wanted to let you know that this camp was very special! It was remarkable seeing the improvement and love for the game that so many of the girls at camp showed.  Not only were the girls talented, but they were such a joy to work with.  I was very impressed with how most of the campers were willing to take our advice and give it a try!

Hey Coach Houser.   I had a great time at camp and it was really, really fun. So i wrote a poem about what a great coach you are.    Coach, friend, leader, biggest-fan.

There aren't enough words to describe
What you've meant to us this year.
You've been by our side through thick and thin,
Whether its a hug to congratulate,
Or to wipe away the tears.
You've brought us strength when we were weak,
You've given us courage when we felt meek.
Always pushing us to do our best,
To never give up until we've beaten the rest.
You taught us to be a team,
And to strive our goals,
No matter how impossible they seem.
We've been pushed, yelled at, preached at, too,
But the more that this happened, the more we grew.
We will carry you with us for the rest of our lifes,
Hearing that voice encouraging us to overcome any strife.
It's hard to say goodbye, but we want you to know,
How thankful we are for that friend we call Coach.

Hey Coach Houser and assistants: 
I've learned so much in just the little time we had together.  I have been going to volleyball camps since the 7th grade, and never have I experienced a camp quite like this.  The amount of improvement I've seen in myself and in my team is astronomical and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I plan to use and pass on all I've learned for years to come. 

P.S.  A big thank you to Maribeth, my team coach!   :)    <3
