I wanted to let all of you know that [my daughter] told me the rookie camp was the best camp ever and has already let me know that she wants to come back next year. It is the first camp she has ever said that about. Thank you all for being the best!The camp was a wonderful experience for Madison!  The staff was first rate and great role models for these young girls.

So she has an opportunity to be an awesome player thanks so much for your wonderful camp, your enthusiasm and feedback.

I had a wonderful time at your camp, and the experience was great. Volleyball is what i love the most, and being able to have the experience from such a wonderful coach is something i honor greatly. I love how you treat us as individuals instead of a group. I hope to see you next year at the camp and one day play on one your travel teams. :),

My daughter just finished up your camp today.  She had a wonderful time and learned a lot for tryouts. She needs to work on serving and hitting.  I saw on your website that you offer private lessons.  That's perfect!

[My daughter] really enjoyed camp again. Thx so much for all the great training and fun :).


2012 Camp Info:


STARS Camp:  8am to noon. 

This will include all nonrookies!  But don't worry!  Girls will be assigned to appropriate divisions where they will be neither overwhelmed or bored. 

RISING STARS 1pm to 5pm. 
This will be the division for all rookies or girls with very, very little playing experience.

Registration Info:
A 2012 registration form is here!

Maximum Campers:

The maximum number may  be 40 in each division!
However, as the numbers get bigger, more coaches will be hired to maintain the 1:4 coach/camper ratio.



We believe this camp will offer the girls
high quality instruction and will give
more personal attention to the participants.

Is there any other camp where approximately 40 girls will have be able to work with up to nine coaches & assistants? 

If you have any questions about the camp, you may email:

* the camp director, Coach Houser at,

* Roanoke Catholic head volleyball coach Aaron King at or;

* the camp host, Frank Guilfoyle at
