On Dec 1, I will start taking reservations from the coaches who didn't host last summer. So....last summer's have from now until that Dec 1 to tell me what week you want and to send me a deposit.


“A good product at a good price is easy to sell.”
Jim Barber, head coach of Westover Christian, in Danville, Va and host of STAR camps in 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2011, and in six previous years!


"What I liked about your camp....... so many things....the positive energy was just electric and contagious.  My girls are so pumped and excited for the season and it has revved me up a notch. Your feedback is delivered in a sincere manner, whether praise or correction, it is delivered and received with respect.

This was a week of holistic volleyball, how to be a better player through skill, team work, sweat and dedication. They are looking forward to next year's camp!"
Maria Rushbrooke, head coach of Roanoke Catholic, host of a 2008, 20092010 and a 2011 STAR camp.


"Coach Houser:
I know you're probably still in the van on your way home, but I just wanted to tell you how thrilled I was with your camp. Your staff was heartfelt, knowledgeable and willing to work with all of my athletes. You did a tremendous job and I appreciated all your hard work. I'm soooooooo excited for my upcoming season. I know that your camp will have a positive influence on our season. Take care and enjoy the rest of your summer!!"

Fawn McMakin, head coach of St Marys Area High School, St Marys, PA, and host of a 2008 STAR camp.


"Great job today. I think the kids worked really hard.  My girls love you."

Jim Barber, head coach of Westover Christian, in Danville, Va


"[My daughter] still talks about you: "Coach Houser would never stand for that"... "Coach Houser would yank her out in a minute for not giving 110%"..."if she tried to act like that on Coach Houser's team, he would cut her out like a cancer!"... You once mentioned a poor attitude by players on a team being like a cancer... you heal it or cut it out!  She has not forgotten that. You have set the bar high and it makes it difficult to accept less or to comprehend coaches who accept less! You do make a lasting impression on the girls who pass through your camps."

Suzie Helbert, former head coach, Stanleytown Baptist Academy and host of a 2005 STAR camp!


I just finished the first day of tryouts for TCS - they looked good - many KUDOS to you and your staff - I don't have to spend the first week doing platform and spike approach! I look forward to a great season.

Barry Kane
Head Vball Coach, Timberlake Christian, STAR host coach in 2007, 2009 and 2010
Forest, Va


"I know your camp helped one of my players with some self-concept issues because she did not get much playing time last year, but this year she knows she needs to step it up for the team. I think the "captain of the day" was a good boost for the players."

Barry Kane
Head Vball Coach, Timberlake Christian, STAR host coach in 2007, 2009 2010 and 2011, Forest, Va

Bottom line…Coach Houser STAR VB CAMP… 15 eager to learn volleyball players…14 hours of expert volleyball instruction….potential for a winning season …. PRICELESS!!!! 

And thank you for the great website!!

Penni Douglas, host of a 2007 Camp at Oconee Christian
Seneca, SC


I thought everything was great. I could not have asked for anything different. The comments were nothing but positive about you and your staff. The greatest compliment is that people learned that volleyball is a TEAM game, not an individual sport.

Information For

When you schedule a STAR camp for 2011, YOU are in control!
You make the critical decisions that are in the best interests of your team.
You decide the number of days;
You decide the number of hours;
You decide the format:  rookie, veteran, standard or high expectations or even maximum expectations

Then, my coaches & I will do the rest!!
We will come to your school.  This should promote attendance!
The assistant coaches will have extensive vball experience
and will be outstanding role models.  The parents will love that!
I will create all the handouts, take care of the warmups and stretching,
and plan the activities each day.

But the best thing about my STAR camps is:  
The cost is up to 60% less than the residential camps your players will be considering,
and up to 40% less than the national site camps that you may be considering!
You & I will confer each day to ensure your kids receive the instruction
that will help improve their performance on YOUR team!!


And we're planning another price freeze again for 2011.....5th year in a row!!

Player To Coach Ratio!  Let's Talk!  

The typical player to coach ratio is 6:1. 

I just saw a website bragging that their ratio is 10:1. 
And some coaches can't wait to tell you about their 9:1.

But there has never been a STAR camp where the ratio was that high. 

At the 2010 Dan River camp, there were 5 coaches for 19 campers.
At the 2010 High Expectations at Virginia Episcopal, there were 9 coaches for 34 campers. 

Your players will be engaged, learning, listening and improving.



A STAR camp can become a nice fundraiser for your team! 
Let me tell you how!

The Staff!

The STAR staff is a mixture of experienced head coaches,
and young, ethical, excited college & high school female players.
I guarantee that STAR coaches are role models who you can trust around your players,
and are outstanding citizens who can confidently tell your players right from wrong.
Every STAR coach is excited to teach your players the game.
I am just as picky about who influences your players as you are.

National Coaching Experience!  

In just the past 6 years, we have traveled with our teams and done site camps at:
Columbus, OH        Anchorage, AK        Baltimore, MD       St Mary's PA     Richmond, VA
Atlanta, GA     Clemson, SC     Miami, FL    Bear, DE    Washington D.C.   Asheville, NC

My teams qualified and participated
in the 2006 J.O. Nationals in Atlanta
and in the 2009 J.O. Nationals in Miami. 
I was also at the 2005 J.O. Nationals in Salt Lake City with my stepdaughter's team.

The formats for STAR camps are limitless!


We can do a Mon-Fri or Mon-Thurs camp.
Or we can do 2 days, 3 days, a weekend, Thurs through Sun, etc.
We can work with rookies in the morning, veterans in the afternoon.
Or we can have two sessions per day for vets , with a rookie session in between.
Maybe you want to reserve one week for your rookies
and another week for your veterans!

My coaches and I will even do an in-season clinic.

How Does A Coach Reserve Days For a STAR Camp?

Most coaches prefer the Standard STAR all-skills camp. 
For info about reserving a week for a Standard STAR camp, touch here.
But some coaches want to offer a High Expectations STAR Camp! 
Info on hosting a High Expectations Camp can be seen here.

And one coach wants to host a butt-kicking, intense Maximum Expectations Camp in 2011.   If you're also interested in that, the web page is here!

Together We Can Do Anything For Your Team!

A STAR camp can last 3 hours a day or 8 hours a day,
we can teach new offenses & defenses, quicken your attack, etc. 

We can do whatever you think will make your team better!!

So Why Is The Popularity of

STAR Camps Exploding?
6:1 coach/camper ratio!      You choose the format!  
Low price!     The camp in made to fit your kids!
We can help you fundraise!    Price freeze for 2011!
Forgot to tell you:  We also provide a free website for you camp, and
we offer you and your players free support through the following fall!

No volleyball camp in the USA offers all this.
You want to try us out?

Together we can do anything!
Contact me at and let's see what we can do for your team!!



On December 1, I will start taking reservations for summer 2012 camps from anyone who didn't host at STAR camp in the summer of 2011.

2011 hosts:  You have from now until that Dec 1 to tell me if you want our staff to return for 2012 and to send me a deposit.  If you wish, you can change the week, as long as it's not a week that a 2011 host wants to keep.

New hosts:  Get your $250 deposit to me asap and specify the week(s) that you want to reserve and which coach you would prefer to host your camp.  For new hosts, it's first-come, first-served.



July 14, 2009.   I wanted to thank you again for the experience that my daughter gained at the High Expectations Camp this year. We have sent her to numerous camps, both in and out of state and some camps we paid twice as much as this camp. What she gained from the High Expectations Camp was so obvious each time she came home. She would talk about each skill that she worked on that day and when I quizzed her about how this camp compared to others I would learn that they never worked with the participants at the others as they did at your camp. She was excited about explaining the skills and techniques that she learned form the various coaches and instructors as well as the friendships experienced. She was the only participant from the Roanoke area and enjoyed the camaraderie that she found at this camp. The coach/instructor ratio is also what impressed me with almost a 4 participants to 1 coach. This by far has been the best camp we have sent her to and I would recommend it to anyone who is wanting to increase the skill of their daughter.
Ron Ratcliffe, father of Lauren, c/o '11 at Lord Botetourt High.

January 31, 2008.  [My daughter] will be going to your high expectation camp this summer. I don't know what you do, but you do a great job of teaching these girls and they come away with a great deal of respect for you and knowledge for playing the game. She was glad that she could go back to one of your camps. I also had a mass email sent out to all of her Varsity and Jr. teammates for your other camp dates.

December 25, 2006.   I would like to thank you for doing the camp at our school over the summer. Our volleyball season went good, 3rd place in the district.  I had the best season EVER!! I seriously think it was all because I went to your camp.  I've got some FANTASTIC news! I'm going to play college ball next year, I signed my letter with the Lady Cavs earlier this month.   THANK YOU AGAIN!!
Kaitlyn Collins, player at UVa-Wise, and now a member of our STAR Staff!

August 23, 2006.  Boy, you are good!  I love what you teach and I agree with your approach and philosophies.



Each STAR Camp host receives a complimentary copy of Coach Houser's Two "I Can't Wait" Ebooks And Drill Collection




We can also do an in-season clinic for your kids!
Just email me at and we'll get the planning started.


My daughter had a great time and enjoyed the plane ride with you guys both as well. This is her first experience with volleyball and it was very positive. Thanks for making it a memorable experience for her.


hey, i miss volleyball soooo much. your coaches made it so fun and so interesting that I didnt want to leave!!! I hope i can come back next year and improve my volleyball skills.The great thing about the camp was that I could
hang out with some of my buddies.


Bella had a great time and is more proud of her flyswatter than any other thing in her room. She came away with the self-confidence boost she needed.

Missy Cadori, mother of two St Marys 2009 campers.


Coach Houser:
it's really hot in that gym, but it only makes you wanna work harder.. I'm thinking of you guys when it gets tough!

Thank you, for everything you've ever done for
me and the team.

St Mary's 2008 and 2009 Camper!


"Your philosophies, plans & genuine love for the game & the girls, most of whom you don't even know, are inspiring. They are the things that separate you, and I'm sure your camps, apart from the rest. I know I have probably written similar things to you before, but keep up the great work!"

Frank Guilfoyle, host of the Roanoke Catholic camp in 2008, 2009 2010 and 2011
