"I wanted to pass on that Emma loved High August 11, 2014 " I really appreciate everything you said and all that you taught me. It has helped me a lot and made me feel like a better confident coach. Expectations! She said it was the best camp she has ever attended, and as a parent the organization is phenominal. It was worth losing 3 days of my vacation. Thanks for everything."
Christy Lipscomb, mother of Emma, Nelson County, c/o '17

"Erin had a great time at the Max Camp and was grateful for the opportunity to go. The amount of coaching experience and knowledge combined at this camp was awesome! Kudos to Coach Willis for his exceptional motivation and encouragement! I heard the food was very good as well as the accommodations for the overnight campers. Erin is already looking forward to coming back next year. :)

"Lots of dfferent levels of players at the university camp that we're at today. Its fine, just expected higher level of players to challenge my daughter. I'm finding out that the university camps do some things well....but YOUR camps have different goals and do most things much better!!"

August 7, 2012.
Coach Houser:   [My daughter] had an awesome time at the Roanoke Catholic camp!! I think it was great for her confidence before going into tryouts! Thank you so much for all the help you and your staff gave to her! by the way she made her jv team at [her school]. Yea!!
June 11, 2012.
[My daughter] attended your camp last year at Carlisle and LOVED it. Really it was her favorite thing of the summer, and she is so looking forward to this year's camp too.

July 12, 2011.
High Expectations was an incredible experience for my daughter. She had an opportunity to learn so much from numerous college coaches. I was particularly impressed with the classroom education provided about college volleyball opportunities. My husband had a great conversation with her following camp pertaining to exercise. He later commented to me that she had been introduced to topics in your camp that he had studied in college!! You are blessed with a unique talent of blending volleyball skills, education, and FUN to create the perfect cocktail! She is all ready looking forward to attending HE (and possibly ME) next year.

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 this summer.  We miss all of you so much and wish you guys were 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.  I'm just so impressed and Devyn is a gem. Really Great!!!! 
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. 
Gussie Revercomb, c/o '13, North Cross School.


August 5, 2011
"I've learned a lot this week, but the most important things that i learned (or rather been relearned) was the fact that team comes way before me and so whatever my coach does I'm sure he will be doing it for the benefit of the team and that's great.  Thanks!"
A 2011 Westover Veteran Camper

August 19, 2011

The team has grown so much!  In fact Sunday we have a team pool party! We have continued having "Captain Of The Day". On game days it is seniors and practices it is underclassmen. I really like this idea you shared with us this summer. Our captains the past two matches have made us cute ribbons for our hair with our name and number, and a ribbon for our shoes with our number and initial, and cookies! :)  I can not wait for you to come watch us play! I miss you guys!


April 21, 2011
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
Head Coach, Westover Christian School,


July 22, 2009.

"Thanks for all of your time and heart, the feedback is outstanding! 
We want you back next year!"
 Maria Rushbrooke, head coach of Roanoke Catholic,

"We all love your coaching style! You definitely have a gift!!"

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


"We remember that at your camp last year every level of player was a focus. That’s why you are so great."

Patricia Eggleston, mother of Amy, 2011 Roanoke Catholic Camper

"Thank you for once again making the camp such a memorable experience for her. You have such a wonderful way of encouraging each of them!  Daphne thinks you are the best coach ever.  :)"

Tamara Allen, mother of Daphne, 2011 Max Expectations Camper

"I was told my approach was perfect by our JV coach and i definitely knew it was because of your camps. She played high school and college (D2).  When I asked her for help, she told me my approach was perfect, that I was one of the few girls who brings both arms up, etc. .

Sami Hanes, St. Marys Pa camper 2008, 2009, 2010.

We all walked into the gym the first morning of camp at nine am, and knew it wasn't going to be the same without you guys here this summer.  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 the man brought in isn't a good coach or that he doesn't know what he's doing, because he sure does, but 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.

A 2009-2011 camper who missed our staff in 2011. 


Does your daughter some private time with my staff? 
We offer private lessons at North Cross School nearly every Sat & Sun night.

"Brooke loved the camp!! Made her work! Awesome coaching and assistants. And of course thank you Sharon Lockert for finding Tom Houser!"

Phil Essner, father of a camper at Analy High Schoool (CA) in 2014

"I am so convinced of your philosophy of building a team atmosphere for girls. It's awesome. Today at practice everbody was smiling & having a blast. You would have loved it."

Jim Barber, host of 11 STAR camps. ~~~~~~~~~

"Your camp is wonderful, your assistants are wonderful, you are wonderful! I can’t tell you how many girls have come up to me in this first week of school to tell me how much they loved camp. Every one of them wants to know if you’re coming back next summer. Even the graduates want a division opened for them! I guess we need to talk. :)

Sharon Lochert, host of the '13 camp at Hillcrest Middle near Santa Rosa CA ~~~~~~~~~

"It was great to have you here. Your staff was wonderful and it was nice to see my girls learning so much. They really loved the camp and thought that it really brought them together. Thanks again for all of your time and effort to make my camp so special!"

Vickie Reising, host of a 2013 STAR camp at South Caldwell High School, Hudson, NC
After a disappointing travel season, the camp at Roanoke Catholic was a very rewarding and confidence builder for her."

Laura Smith, mother of Kimmie, a Roanoke Catholic 2013 camper.


The girls who came to camp are all at tryouts, and we are using the Drill Collection you gave me for hosting. I cannot tell you how much we have learned!"

Nicole Kane, host of the 2013 Appomattox camp.


he camp was right on what I had wanted to happen. I especially appreciate your words about the "team".

Amy Amerell, mother of a High Expectations camper, and then host of a High Expectations Camp!
“Thank you for a great camp week! Our team learned so much from you & I am excited to start the season. Your emphasis on "team" rather than self not only encourages them in volleyball, but keeps the focus where it should be on & off the court. Keep doing what you do! I look forward to the opportunity for our girls to work with you again
in the future."

Angie Mays, mother Maximum Expectations and two-time WCA camper.


“Tom not only brings his technical knowledge of the game but has a passion for what he is doing”

Jim Barber, host of 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2012 & 2013 STAR Skills Camps

"I can't even express how much this camp helped me and the team!  Thanks!"

Julianna Garren, head coach, Carlisle School, and host of a 2011 & 2012 STAR camp.

"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, 2010, 2011 and 2012 STAR camps. 

"I was encouraged how much our girls improved this year. We are getting there piece by piece. 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, host of a 2010 in-season clinic.


"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, 2011 and 2012

"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.  Then DR hosted camps in 2011 & 2012.

"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 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 through 2008

"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.


"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."

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


"Last 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 last Friday.  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.

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 and help you guys out! 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.


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

Whitney Dove, host of the Riverheads STAR camp 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 coach, Timberlake Christian and host of 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 STAR camps.
