Thank you for working with her in prior training sessions to get her where she needs to be. "

Maribeth got 1st team All-District, and you were a big part of that.  Thank you for the positive comments.  It means a lot. 
Mary Jo Kern, mother of Maribeth, James River High (Buchanan) c/o '13

Aug 5, 2010
I wanted to give you an update. Bre tried out for the HVMS team this week. She found out today that she made the team. I wanted to thank you and your staff for helping Bre develop some very good skills with the VIP sessions & Roanoke Catholic Camp. Six week ago she could not serve the ball over the net or pass very well but her skills have grown with you and your staff's help.
Kevin Lockhart, father of Bre, c/o '16 at Hidden Valley

June 7, 2008
"Thanks so much for a great player training session! Both Macie and [her partner] really enjoyed meeting you and working with you. It was so incredibly hot in the gym, but you kept them focused and motivated! Hopefully, we will have a chance to work with you again soon. Thanks again!
Marie Hobach, mother of Macie, William Byrd, c/o '12.

June 8, 2008
"Sam really is great! She is so encouraging. I wish I had a video of the girls the first time they met with her and again tonight. Sarah was doing great serving and then Sam started showing her to serve it short to throw the other team off. I love it! Thanks for all you do.
Maria Smith, mother of Sarah, Cave Spring c/o '13

July 12, 2009.
"Dani had a fantastic time with Sam this past weekend. Even though she worked her butt off, she was smiling the entire time and left with a confidence I had not seen in a while.

Sylvie Peterson, mother of Dani Austin, c/o '13 at Northside High

Aug 5, 2007
"Tom, just in case you wanted some feedback on Sam Thomas, here it is:

 Julia had her best session yet tonight with Sam. She felt Sam did a better job of explaining things than anyone else she has had. I think it really helps that Sam was closer in age to Julia. 

Sam did a GREAT job, and I just wanted you to know it.

David Lowen, father of Julia Lowen, Cave Spring, c/o '13

July 28th, 2007
"Thank you for talking Aaron into working with the girls in July, he is an excellent instructor and Christine really enjoyed her lessons with him. He worked her out pretty good, she was dragging when she left tonight but I believe she gained some valuable skills."

Tommy Surface, father of Christine, Craig County High, c/o '10. Christine became the VHSL career ace record holder.

July 2, 2007
"Wow, I wish I could duplicate Aaron. He is a terrific instructor, and quite patient. Unfortunately, I know coaches like him don't grow on trees, but having met him and seen him work with Aidan at least helps crystallize the search for a coach who will be a good fit."

Frank Guilfoyle, father of Roanoke Catholic, Aidan c/o '11 and Mairan c/o '13

July 19, 2007
"Thanks so much for all of the lessons for Kelsey over the past year.  I just wanted to let you know that she went to the JV open gyms and instead of playing middle school this year Aaron King wants her to tryout for JV. This is a player who didn't make the middle school team in 7th but took lessons with you all year and then may play JV. You are the best!"

Susan Sine, mother of Kelsey, Cave Spring c/o '09 and Frannie, Hidden Valley c/o '20.

August 22, 2007
"You are so good with the girls - funny when there's time for it, firm when they need it. Thank you for all the hard work and working with Cailin for so long!! When she made the CSMS team, her coach told me she was an amazingly good setter for a 7th grader. I, of course, told her it was because she had been working with you! She absolutely loves training with you and looks forward to it all day long when we have a practice scheduled. She loves goofing around with you but also takes everything you tell her seriously. I know she would not be at the level she's at if we hadn't met you a year ago. Thank you so much!
Susan Smedley, mother of Cailin, Cave Spring c/o '13.

Training Camp at Floyd Co High School was awesome!
April 2, April 9-10, April 12, April 19 2007, then again March 24 and 27, 2008!!!  It was GREAT! I can't wait to go back!

"If a person is willing to change, she will see results.

But if a person only wants to see results, then she won't be willing to change."

May 20, 2008
Thank you SO MUCH for everything!!!!!  Aside from your obvious wonderful teaching and coaching, your positive encouragement and enthusiasm means the most to Macie (and me)! 
Marie Hobach, mother of Macie, player at William Byrd.

May 28,  2008
Chesley had a great session with Lauren on Sunday... Lauren did a great job with her!
Beth Fobare, mother of Chesley, Northside c/o '10.

July 14, 2008.
Amanda and Jessie really enjoyed their time with Lauren yesterday. They said they liked it a great deal more and learned a lot more than at some of the camps they have been to. It was well worth the trip and money.  We wish that we could have taken advantage of these types of sessions at lot earlier in Amanda's vball career. Thanks for everything.
Debra Alderson, mother of Amanda, c/o '09 at Westover Christian in Danville.

June 8, 2008

I wanted to thank you for the lesson tonight.  Cailin, once again, had a fabulous time. It is so rewarding to see how much she has improved since she started working with you. She came away feeling so good about herself tonight. Even though nothing she did was perfect, she felt like she'd really done a good job and that is totally a reflection of your attitude with her. We are so fortunate to have you to train and encourage our girls! I just can't express my appreciation to you enough!!
Susan Smedley, mother of Cailin, Cave Spring High, c/o '13.

April 16, 2008
Your program is changing lives Coach Houser and God Bless you for all of your hard work!!
Lynn Irby, mother of Lyndsay, c/o '14.

"It is such a pleasure watching the girls enjoy and learn so much in their sessions.  Julia truly enjoys the game and she enjoyed her sessions with you so much. She and [her partner] both talked about how much they learned in that hour. Thanks again for all you do."
David Lowen, father of Cave Spring High, Julia c/o '13 and Sarah c/o '14.

Aug 14,  2008
Madi's success is a credit to both you and Sam.  She has had such a good time and made tremendous progress. If you have a way of getting in touch with Sam, please let her know that the girls made the team and we truly appreciate all Sam did. She is great!   We definitely look forward to working with you more in the future as we travel down this road. I have a feeling that we are only at the beginning.
Laura Billings, mother of Madi, a member of the Cave Spring Middle team

August 1, 2008.  Please let Lauren know that her tips really worked for Jackie. She has worked really hard all week and is now not only serving correctly but they are actually going deep. We really appreciate all of her help.
Rhonda Boehling, mother of Jackie, a 9th grader at Salem High School.

July 20, 2008.    Chesley has improved so much and I was really worried about her with the time off for her surgery, etc. But thanks to YOU she has progressed so far and learned so much! You are so patient, kind and a tremendous teacher…I’m just so glad that we were able to get her in to work with you! Thank you for everything!
Beth Fobare, mother of Chesley, Northside High volleball player.

July 7, 2008.  "My girls were so motivated when they left player training! They improved tremendously in two hours because of the attention and concentration given to their weaknesses. Coach Houser knows the game but also realizes the critical importance of being attentive to the player, recognizing her strengths and weaknesses, then he explains what can be done to make the player better.   Explanations were given as to why you do certain things. We drove the distance and paid the extra money because he is worth it. As far as coaching goes, we have not met anyone that "coaches" as well as COACH HOUSER.  They are fortunate to have him as a coach because they are getting the best, we are fortunate that he's close by and doing what he loves. Thanks Coach Houser for enjoying your job, keep it up, it's contagious!" --Bedford Mom

September 10, 2007
Thanks so much for all you do. I don’t think you realize what a positive impact you have on the girls.
Cathy Sutphin, mother of Alyson, volleyball player at Pulaski County

February 19, 2009
I wanted to let you know how much Erin enjoyed her session with Devyn on Sunday! We feel that it was a great practice and Devyn was very good with her, in assessing where she was and helping her improve on the many points they worked on. Erin definitely wants to work with Devyn, again, and I will let you know what works for us!
Sabrina Lee, mother of a Central Academy Middle School player

November 26, 2008
Stacey has improved so much since starting with you guys!  She had the talent for it, but I'm so excited to see her do better and better and I know she is excited!  Stacey said she got a good workout and Lauren taught her some things that she hadn't been shown before, which is great!

Christi Zysk, mother of a Craig County Middle School girl.

Aug 23, 2008
Brianas serve is awesome..hasn't missed one yet in any of her games...thanks for all your help..will be glad when she can have more sessions with you..keep us in mind if you have cancellations.

Emily had a great lesson last Sunday - fun & educational. She really felt like she got a lot out of it. We will definitely request Sam again."

The Player Training Staff

Tom Houser has been coaching volleyball since 1985.  He has coached 18 varsity team, 10 JV teams and has coached 23 club  teams.  His teams have qualified for Junior Nationals in 2006, 2009 , 2012 and 2016.  His stepdaughter, Lauren, a 2010 graduate of Radford University, was a 4-year starter on the RU volleyball team. More about Coach Houser can be seen here, and you can contact him at

Coach Houser has attended: Gold Medal Squared in Annapolis, USAV CAP I at JMU, USAV CAP II in Wisconsin, Clinician at Louisville University Elite Camp in 1999 and USAV Impact Clinic.

October 10, 2017
"Thank you for all you have done for my daughter. She looks forward to each lesson with you. In the short time she has been playing, you are the only coach who has really pushed her. I have learned over the years that she responds best to hard coaching with a positive attitude. She is a good student and is trying to absorb everything you are teaching. Coaches can be honest and even critical as long as the player knows it comes from a place of caring. So, thanks again!!"

Although the team ended up losing the 3rd set tiebreaker, she entered the game specifically to serve with her team behind 18-22 in the second set. She proceeded to go on a very impressive 5 point run that ultimately led us to a 2nd set win. Thanks again for teaching her both volleyball and life skills

October 15, 2011
I didn't even think about going to someone else for lessons.... which is testament to you.

I've even gotten 1 or 2 kills on some kids that are older and have been playing longer! I have been able to do this because of all of your help!  Thank you again and I hope to see you soon!!!!!  You are the best!

May 22, 2010
"We're so glad to have you!"

Oct 25,  2009   I've seen you turn mediocre volleyball players that are good athletes into awesome players. 
Your skills as a coach have them growing two years worth of skills in one season I am glad you have a training program that she can participate in because the time she has with you definitely builds her confidence and keeps her smiling and positive! That is the most important thing for us right now! So keep up the good work! 

Jan 4,  2010  [My daughter] made the team!!!!!! She is excited. She was the only one there that could set middle 1's and that's due to your help at her last lesson.

May 22,  2010   [My daughter's] work with you, in my thoughts, is critical not only to improve her skills, but also to regain her confidence and belief in her abilities. 

Oct 22,  2009  Thanks for everything you have done for [my daughter] over the years. Every game I see her do things that you have taught her. When she is playing back row she always looks at each girl on the back row and tells them. "I've got to this point and to this point". It makes me smile. The other day when she called "Cindy take it, Cindy take it" I thought of you.

Sept 11, 2009   Lauren Clary really helped open up my daughter’s serves. And where Lauren  left off, Devyn picked up!  She really helped my daughter to focus and fine tune, not just her serves, but her style and form. She really helped to refine her serve. In Thursday’s game, my daughter had 7 consecutive serves on her first time up, and her next time up, she had 6! Lost count, but she claims that at least half of them were aces. Pass this on to Devyn, because my daughter could tell she really helped in her form to be more consistent and accurate!!!  It’s all in the toss…

Sept 10, 2009   My coaches totally noticed that i changed a bunch & i told them i went to you. one of my coaches even knew exactly who you were from shamrock & they both thought it was great. thanks again!
Sept 9, 2009    [One girl] was using her arms in her approach in last night's game which she hadn't been, and both she and [the second girl] tried and completed several 'quicks'. That's a big step! They usually won't even try them.  Coach told my daughter to jump serve a couple last night and she got aces with those, so the girls were excited at the 'payoff' from working with Devyn.  From my perspective, I really liked how Devyn questioned them and made them think through what they do and don't do.  My daughter has had that some, but that was new to the other two to actually examine why they do what they do.
Aug 26, 2009 It's people like you who make this world a brighter place for our young people
and their parents, so thank you for all you do and your passion for it.
Aug 26, 2009 Nikki Johnson was wonderful!   She really helped my daughter .... I wish we had discovered you earlier! Sept 2, 2009  I looked on your website and you are all booked.  She needs you!
Aug 24, 2009  [My daughter] is on the A team.  They play first game today.  Serve is working well and her back row play is very solid.  Her confidence is way up! Aug 24, 2009    Thanks for caring. You are a great trainer and [my daughter] would love to play for a coach like you some day.
Aug 8, 2009 Thank you thank you for all you have done for [my daughter]!  To see her go in and have to perform for a new coach and team while feeling shy and tentative, only to see her take everything you, Lauren and Sam have shown her, is fantastic. Serve is working well & her back row play is very solid. Her confidence is way up!
Aug 6, 2009  [My daughter] had planned to tell you she made varsity on Sat night, but I just couldn't wait!  Many many thanks to you for sticking with her these past years in helping her with Volleyball and giving her your life lessons talks. They really do listen to what you have to say.
May 20, 2009  [My daughter] went to a hitters session taught by a former USA volleyball player who her coach set up.  Afterwards she said "I learned a little, but most of it Coach Houser had already showed me" I thought that it was great that you had already taught her the same thing. She also liked the way you taught it better.
June 3, 2009.  PLEASE email me the next time you have an opening.
 [My daughter] was very upset when i told her you were booked for the summer

April 26, 2009.    Thanks for the lesson. I had a blast. cant wait to work with you again!

April 28, 2009.     She really enjoyed the last session. Normally she frowns at personal instruction but you hit a home run with her.

April 26, 2009.   She wants to train with you because she feels like you can help her be the best.  nk so too and I appreciate the confidence that you are giving her.

     May 7, 2009.   My daughter was definitely happier with her hitting this week.  I thought it was the best I've ever seen her do.

April 25, 2009.   "We were going to enroll in the JMU Individual Skills camp, but we decided to use that money to work with you.  We think we'll accomplish more with you in a one-on-one setting."

April 24, 2009.    "Everyone at our school has been seeing how much my daughter has progressed with her playing and asked her what her "secret" was. So, when she told them it was YOU, I guess they've started knocking on your door!"

April 13, 2009.    You are a great coach because you take the time to explain yourself, she told me that was the best part of the lesson.  Sue Wilson, mother of Dominique, c/o '13 at William Byrd

Feb 18, 2009.   Guess when we saw that opening on the website, it was just our lucky day. I know if you don't grab it as soon as it goes up, it's gone. You are such a good coach you are in high demand.

January 6, 2009.   You need to be a college coach.    You have a gift that needs to be cultivated and shared.  One of my biggest regrets in this whole volleyball world is [my daughter] never having the opportunity to be on one of your teams.   Dang.

October 27, 2008.  Timberlake won the VACA championship, it was great.    My daughter got in a lot of great hits.    I couldn’t help but think of you and how you helped her!  We’ll see you soon.

August 17, 2008.   Thanks for the great lesson on saturday.  [My daughter] said it was the best ever. she also says you're an awesome coach.   Thanks again!

October 26, 2008.   My daughter as very "pumped" about her training session with you last night.  She was just thrilled to be back in the gym with you!  We really appreciate YOU!

August 5, 2008.   heyyy Coach Houser!  
i just wanted to thank you SOOOOOOO much for all the hard work you've put in with me and the postive attitude you've had.   thank you!  i just wanted to let you know that since we've worked so hard i've been put on varsity!!!     they said the past two days that i've already improved at middle and they think that i could be great!   so we have new stuff to train on =]   THANKS!

August 3, 2008.    Coach told her that I'm the most improved player on the whole Varsity team!  At team camp at everyone was impressed with my serving and how much I've improved.  We played tournaments on the last day and I started!!  I wanted to thank you so much for helping me get better and being so encouraging. You'll have to come see us play this season so I can show you what I can do!

 April 16, 2008.  [Kate Feldman] changed my daughters entire level of confidence and outlook on V-ball.  My daughter left feeling good about herself and that's huge at 12 yrs. old!

November 26, 2008
We had so much fun today in the gym.
It felt right!!

 April 11, 2008. Your enthusiasm is absolutely wonderful -- thanks!!!!

 May 27, 2008. [My daughter] had a rec game tonight and her serves were awesome.. Thanks a bunch. We had so much fun today in the gym. It felt right!!

 May 22, 2007. I like the way you constantly talk and instruct while you are showing. You explain it in ways she can understand and put to use. You don't get mad at her if she screws up. You just say, don't worry, try it again, they say good, and it makes her want to work harder.Your enthusiasm is absolutely wonderful -- thanks!!!!

 May 7, 2007.   You tell her what she does wrong, but you tell it in a positive way that doesn't hurt her feelings.  Makes her want to work harder. and you praise her when she does it right. She was so proud of those pancakes!!   She always leaves your training feeling tired but good about herself.

May 17, 2007.     I love you as a coach and keep it up and with your guidance [my daughter] will be a star and a power to recon with at [her high school] and Junior travel squads for the next 3 years (college too)!!!!

May 20, 2007.   Thank you for the card and also for doing such a great job  working with [our daughter]. This is the best thing we have done for her. I know if she keeps working with you and challenging herself, she will make it to the next level.

May 7, 2007.   [My daughter] was really pleased with the work.  Thanks again.  What great spirit and enthusiasm you bring to the court -- she loves that!!!!!

May 7th, 2007.   Thanks for working with me this afternoon. I really feel good about myself and how much you help me to improve. Looking forward to next Sunday!

And one more......May 7, 2007.   I just wanted to let you know that we had a great session with Shannon last night. She let the girls lead the session - kept asking them what they wanted to work on.   [My daughter] had a great work out and [her partner] had her serving & hitting the best I've seen her do!  I would recommend Shannon to anyone who asks. 

April 22, 2007.  "[My daughter] really enjoyed her time with Keesha.  She said that Keesha was more helpful than anyone has ever been.

April 23, 2007.   Gosh, it sure was nice to be back in the gym with you!! You seem to be able to build [my daughter's] confidence more than any one else!

April 30, 2007.  Thanks for all you do. I appreciate all you do for my daughter. She thinks you are awesome. It is so funny to watch you work with her and the things you notice that she does.  I have watched her for years and never noticed!!!  I always knew she had more hitting potential and wondered why she was not hitting harder.  I think she is on the right road with you. You are really helping her with her form so she can break some of those bad habits and move on to a higher level. Thank you!!!!!

Oct 8, 2006.  " I'm so glad she's been able to work with you over the past couple of months! I've seen a lot of improvement in her skills as well as her confidence. She absolutely loves volleyball and seems to be willing to work pretty hard to improve. "

November 1, 2006.   "And haven't you been working with my teammate??  I think so, especially because I've seen a HUGE improvement recently--harder hits, more confidence, and better serves. It's awesome!!"

Nov 12, 2006.  " My wife said you had a great session with [our daughter].   With your help she'll start to reach whatever potential she is destined to reach. Thanks for your enthusiasm, support and coaching."

May 14, 2006.  "My daughter had such a good time with your lesson last night. She was pumped when she left. Thanks for being so positive with her. She even told me that she wanted to call her new coach and have a meeting with her, maybe even a session with her to show her what she can do.   Now, that really is positive!!!"

August 29, 2006.
"The girls had a great time & can't wait to practice with you again!"

Aug 7, 2006.  "Try outs started today!   It went pretty coach noticed an improvement on my digging/serving/hitting and I think that I'm noticing a difference as well. Thanks for all of your help!!!!!"

Sept 20,  2006.  [My daughter] enjoyed flying on her stomach at practice - in fact she did it at the last game  - and she said after that game - "thanks to Coach Houser teaching me I was able to put it into practice"

Sept 18, 2006.  "Thanks for working with the girls last night.  All the positive encouragement should help them play much better today!!!  You have really taught them so much this year."

July 11, 2006.  " I just wanted to tell you how much I really do enjoy working with you.  Even when I mess up, you help me not get down on myself.  The thing that encourages me most is when you tell me that even though I messed up, other things were correct. This really makes me want to work harder.  Thanks a lot!"

June 21, 2006.   "hey coach houser!!  ive really been working on my jump floater at the volleyball camp this week and im getting pretty close to 95%!! thank you for teaching it to me, its been very useful. i look forward to our next session and cant wait to learn more tricks and techniques.  hope youre having a great summer!

July 9, 2006.  "I just wanted to thank you for working with my daughter on Saturday. The clinic was excellent and she picked up several pointers that she can work on to improve.   I also want to thank you for your positive upbeat approach with the girls.  It is obvious that your passions include both youth and volleyball.  Your enthusiasm is catching."

June 27, 2006.  "[My daughter] was so happy that she learned so much. She is anxious to have more lessons so I will keep an eye on your website for available times. Thank you again and again!!!!

May 11, 2006.  "After the training session last night, I asked my daughter if anything you told her was different or hard to change or contrary to anything she'd been taught and she said, "No, and besides, even if it was, if HE says it, I know it must be right.

June 13, 2006.  "[The girl you trained tonight told her mom that] she learned more in those 2 hours than in any camp she'd ever been to!  So I know they are happy!"


July 21, 2006.  "I picked my daughter up this afternoon from a volleyball thing, and the head varsity coach said that he has never seen such improvement in a player and had no idea she was going to be able to do the things he's seeing her do. Said he was going to hold her up as an example of someone who works for what she wants.  Woooooooooohhoooooo!! He noticed!!!!   I'm so proud of her. And thanks for all your work with her."

High school girls who come to player training will be pushed and stressed.  A girl will leave knowing that there are parts of her game that she needs to improve on.

Middle school girls or rookies who come to player training will be shown the fundamentals that are used throughout the country.  The trainers will continue to reinforce them until they are mastered! 


There's no
need to notify us if you're bringing extra girls to a one-on-one lesson.

Brittany really enjoyed Alan. She learned alot, we will continue to schedule with him.   Brittany really enjoyed her session with Alan. She loved that he talked "tall" with her & he have played middle hitter.  It gave him instant credibility with her. This translates in teenage lingo to " I will listen ".  Excellent!!!!! See you again soon.

Please feel free to share Stacey's story.  Training and Juniors took her from being cut from JV in the 8th grade to a starting varsity player as a freshman.    :) She was all smiles when I asked her how it went. The training she has gotten from both you and Devyn has really boosted her confidence in her game. Big thanks to you both!!
Christi Paxton, mother of Craig County player, Stacey Zysk

I am glad you have a training program that she can participate in because the time she has with you definitely builds her confidence and keeps her smiling and positive! That is the most important thing for us right now! So keep up the good work!
Gladys Gensurowsky, mother of Madison, c/o '11 at William Byrd High

August 23, 2009.   Devyn's sessions were very good! The three girls that attended her sessions visibly improved at games. One really did super!  At the last game, best serves of the game.  Devyn is professional, helpful, informative.

 Lauren is pretty stoked about making the team. During tryouts, the coach told her she could tell that she’d been really working on her serve. High five to Lauren Clary!  Thanks again for all of your hard work and enthusiasm for these girls!
David Maddox, father of Lauren, Hidden Valley c/o '12

June 22, 2009
Thank you so much!! You have helped me so much. I would do my serve and never know what I was doing wrong. Now I know what to do and how to fix it. Also my short serve is so much better and I hope I get to use it a lot this season. My hitting has changed from hitting out of the court to know to getting on top of the ball and bringing both hands up and not doing any of that stupid stuff that is only going to hurt my swing. Good luck to you and your team at Miami!! See you soon when you have another lesson open.
Sadie Wallace, Franklin County c/o '10

May 9, 2009.  Thanks so much for the lesson tonight. You are soooo good with the girls. Your patience with them is great. I like the way you make the drills fun, instead of them dreading them they can't wait to do them. Dominique was pretty tired when we got home tonight so I know she had a good workout. I can see her improve with every lesson. She has wanted to try to jump serve since she saw the Olympic teams doing it. She has tried to do it before but couldn't quite get it, but the way you showed her to do it was great.
Sue Wilson, mother of Dominique, William Byrd, c/o '14
