Feedback from parents and coaches about the camp. 

Just wanted to let everyone know from Erin Lee and her parents that you guys did an AWESOME job at camp!! Erin had so much fun and truly did learn a great deal that we know will help her in her endevors. She really loves volleyball and we look forward to working with you guys in the future! Take care! And, again, thanks for helping make this camp so great!

"[My daughter] told me Monday that the JV coach was complimenting her on her serves and wanted to know if she has been working on them. Your camp got the credit."

"You promised a quality camp and you certainly delivered on that promise! Thank you for all that you and the assistant coaches did this past week.  My daughter has already said she wants to attend next year's VB camp."

"I appreciated the 'spirit' of the camp. From what I observed, the camp was positive, certainly instructive, encouraging, and fun. I especially appreciated the whimsical nature of your awards.  Very creative.  Thanks for all your efforts. I (and I'm sure many other moms) am grateful for quality people who touch my daughter's life."

"Let me pass on some of the good things that I heard my daughter said about the camp:
1. Coach Houser gives good water breaks. They're the best I've ever had in VB.
2. The coaches are teaching me things that none of my coaches over the past three years taught me.
3. I want to go to next year's camp.        4. The girls are friendly.
5. The coaches are encouraging.         6. I'm having a good time."

"She wouldn't have won the award if not for you.  Before we started lessons with you, she wasn't consistent. With your help she has become very consistent. All I can say is wow! "

"Something I liked a lot about the camp was you making them pair up with girls from other schools, forcing them to not just socialize with their friends.  And the warm ups you had them do were fun and made it feel more like playing instead of working.  Thank you so much. "

"My daughter has really enjoyed camp this week.  She has had a great week with LOTS of great instruction.  We appreciate all that you do"    

"You are a great coach and I can't believe some college hasn't snatched you up. You really should be coaching a college team."

"Tom:     Thanks again for another successful camp...all of the girls looked very good and kudos for whoever got the middle to run a slides!!!!(I also made a big deal about that to them!)    I saw so much progress and some potential positions for the fall. I also was able to catch a few areas that need attention!  It was nice to sit back and watch!  I also (as always ) learn a lot from you and your staff.   They are excellent!    I want to host this camp next year as well!"   Host Coach Maria Rushbrook
