Your efforts last summer definitely paid off with the local teams. Thanks for your investment in our program and the program at Roanoke Catholic!  You are awesome!

Barry Kane, head coach, Timberlake Christian and host of 2009 and 2010 STAR camps.

I was encouraged how much our girls improved this year. I am really excited that our serve receive and defense really improved. That more than anything is what I have gleaned from our friendship. Defense, serve receive, defense, serve receive, defense.

Will Greene, host of the Virginia Episcopal STAR camp in 2010
We are from Richmond and I have watched you. It is clear that you love this sport more than anyone I have ever seen before. I have seen you coach your kids and you teach them how to do it right and with high expectations. Kids need you! 

Becky Heldreth, mother of Carrie, Roan Catholic STAR '10 camper of the week

Thank you for taking the time to help us build a team! I always enjoy being around you and watching you coach, but most importantly TEACH!

Mary Tyree, head coach at Covington High School


Coach Houser's camp was a home run for our girls! There is no question that the girls grew an incredible amount both individually and as a team. The amount of individual attention, encouraging but intense instruction, and thoughtful dialogue make this camp hard to beat. I would recommend it to any coach or team as great alternative or complement to going to a college program's volleyball camp."

Will Greene, host of the Virginia Episcopal STAR camp in 2010

Danny Miller and his staff were awesome. They really helped the players.  My players were asked by the assistants to give more effort all the time, which is great advice, especially from someone close to their age.   Please tell Danny and his staff thank you for everything they did. The camp was a lot of fun.

Heidi Moore, host of the Patrick Co STAR camp in 2010

Because of your camp my daughter has attended for the past two years, she was named MVP for the middle school team at Timberlake Christian! It is worth the money! I recommend it to many moms.

Sandi Martin, mother of 2009 Timberlake and 2008 Jefferson Forest camper. 


"We are very excited about you coming to Dan River to help our players and program.  I believe in the future we will look back on this week as a turning point in the turnaround of the program."

Bobby Shields, host of the Dan River STAR camp in 2010


"One of the main things I am so proud of is the way my girls played as a TEAM, and I want to thank you for starting that with us at camp this summer. That made a huge difference this year."

Whitney Dove, host of the Riverheads STAR camp in 2009.


"Thank you again for such a wonderful camp. You are one in a million."

Amy Amerell, mother of a 2008 High Expectations camper, and then she hosted a 2009 High Expectations Camp in 2009!


"Thank you so much for your love for these girls. And for your hard work."

Nikki Parkinson, host of the Red Lion Christian Camp in 2008 and 2009


"We loved having you all here this week. I know the girls learned tons and are very grateful. I also learned quite a bit and want to thank you all for, not only the skills lessons, but all the talk about TEAM. I know the girls that came to the camp will help me with that. I will definitely keep in touch throughout the season & I know we would love to have you come back next year." 

Whitney Dove, head coach at Riverheads High in Staunton, VA, STAR host in 2009

I wanted to let you know that I received good news this week! I will be the head coach for Timberlake's varsity volleyball team again this year. I finally got the approval this week. I can't wait to put into practice some of the things I have learned at your camps the last two years."

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


"I know you hear this alot, but you are an awesome coach! Your email after the tournament made my daughter's day!  You can use my words because I would tell anyone! I manage a large company and I know great leadership when I see it. Thanks again for staying close to your players."

James Mercadante, father of Kelsey, STAR Camper 2005, 2006, 2007 & 2008


"Thanks for sending such great coaches to help us out.  It is too far out but I think I want to have them back next year.  The money we spent was money well spent.  Thanks again for making it possible."

Edgardo Ullrich, host of an in-season clinic at Shenandoah Valley Academy, August 19, 2009

June 9, 2011.

We all walked into the gym this morning and knew it wasn't going to be the same without you guys back for this summer's camp.  We miss all of you so much and wish you guys aren't up here again. :(   We're not laughing or anything.  Just wanted to let you know that we're all thinking of you guys. Some of us have already called Devyn and Sam because we miss steal the bacon, and "DEAL?" "PICKLE!" and all of the little things, especially taking notes in the hallway as we talk about our lives that bring us together with the great game of volleyball.  After we stretch at the end of the day, us seniors bring the team together in our huddle and do your infamous "TOGETHER WE CAN."  And we'll never forget what you've taught us about ourselves to make a team.

July 12, 2010.

I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the VIP last night with Devyn and today's Rising Stars Camp. This is Olivia's 1st time really ever playing volleyball and she is just so excited.  I thought maybe this might be a sport that builds her young spirit up and brings out her passion for a sport. The last 2 days of her spending time with your organization has really excited her. I just wanted to tell you that you have done a really great job with this game of volleyball for these girls.  Im just so impressed and Devyn is a gem. Really Great!!!!We all walked into the gym that morning at nine and knew it wasn't going to be the same without you guys. We miss all of you so much and can't believe coach didn't call you guys back to come back up here again. :( It's not that Coach Starr isn't a good coach or that he doesn't know what he's doing, because he sure does, he just doesn't get involved with us. It's like he barely knows our names and just seems to be treating us as another camp for a pay check or something.
Kim Frank, mother of Olivia Frank, Salem High, c/o '17.

The High Expectations camp i went to at VES was definitely the most helpful camp Ive been to all summer. I got in lots of reps and the amount of knowledgeable coaches there allowed a lot more attention to be focused on individual players.   Thanks!
Gussie Revercomb, c/o '13, North Cross School.

Emily had a great time at TCS last summer and your style of coaching the girls is awesome !!!!   Your enthusiasm shows on the court and I want to let you know how much Emily values what you tell her.   I wanted to tell you---- We stayed to watch your team at RVC-They are something else !!!!
Thanks for all you do !

Donna Drewry, mother of Emily, a 2010 STAR camper.



July 13, 2010.

Thanks to you and your team of coaches for doing an AWESOME job at TCS this past week. My daughter is a rising 6th grader and had such an incredible time.  She has never been one to enjoy athletics so we were a bit skeptical about putting her in this camp. She was excited everyday after camp and enthusiastic about returning each morning. We were thrilled for her and thank you and your coaches so much for making this a fun and enjoyable time. She grew and learned so much in that short amount of time. We have been so proud of her progress and happy that she found a sport she enjoys (much to the credit of your coaches...she loved them)!

 My daughter Felisha was at your High Expectations Camp at JFHS.  It was the best camp she had ever attended.  After we left you, she went to James Madison University for a hitter camp, then to Va Tech for their Specialty Camp and a team skills camp.  None compared to the fundamentals that you instilled in her.  She grew from the things you guys taught her.  And she got the hitter position on her school team that she tried out for against against a lot of talented girls, and is a hitter on her varsity team.  We couldn't have done it w/o you!

"You can go to a big university camp and spend $500 and just play a bunch a games. To get the kind of instruction that STAR camps give your players is a total bargain."

Jim Barber

Host of eleven STAR camps, including 2006, 2007, 2008
and 2011

"Thank you for providing a great experience for my girls. Lucia was pretty much sure she wasn't playing this year. I insisted she go to camp before she made her final decision, and she's now turned around and looking forward to playing. Thanks for your encouragement & taking time to make her feel like a worthwhile part of the team. She has nothing but good things to say about you."

Missy Cadori, mother of two St Marys 2009 campers.


ast week was absolutely amazing! I was so nervous about this coming season, because my coach wanted me to play a new position I wasn't used to, but now I feel totally ready for the coming school season! I'm so grateful for you and all the coaches for pushing me to learn and prepare myself. I'll keep you and all the coaches in mind this year every game! Thank you!"

Sandy Serio, camper at the EC Glass High Expectations Camp, June 2009


"We played in the round robin tournament in September, and it was so cool to see how far we've come!  The parents were so impressed with the girls' progress.  The credit goes to you!"

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


"While watching Coach Houser's practices they reminded me of the purpose and intensity that we saw during the Regional High Performance camps my daughter has attended. Every drill is well planned out and executed. Each has a purpose, and builds on what was learned in earlier sessions. The players are encouraged to play the game with passion along with strategy. "

Dorothy McIntyre, Girls Junior Director, Old Dominion Region, mother of a member of my 2009 Junior Vball Team that qualified for Nationals.

"I just wanted to thank you for letting me help out with the camp again this year. It was awesome seeing you guys and it was great working with the kids and not only teaching them, but also learning about them too. I plan on coming back again next year! I love being apart of the Coach Houser camp - it makes my whole summer! Thanks again!"

Lori Bryant, Red Lion Christian Academy camper in 2006 and 2007, and assistant in 2008 and 2009.


"I just looked at our camp web page with all the pictures, and it is great!! Thanks for the great job you and your coaches did, I could not ask for better."

  Sharon Owens, Host of a 2006 Camp at Lebanon High School in Lebanon, Va 


"I am a big Tom Houser fan and I couldn't think of a better fit for our girls at this stage of their development."
