Coach Houser Bio What Others Say Archives

"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.


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 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

"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 


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.


"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.

"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 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

"I just miss you so much though!! I have my serving award hanging on my wall and I framed the picture we took at camp. I just really want to thank you and tell you how much you and all the coaches have meant to me over the years. You’ve impacted my life so much! I hope to see you soon."

Courtney Caudill, Fort Chiswell High, c/o '21


July 1, 2019
"I just wanted to let you know that Annabella was very happy with her experience at College Expectations. She even told me that even though she missed our family vacation, she would not have traded it for what she learned, how she has grown as a player, and the friends she has made. This is our 2nd year attending, and we will continue to return. From a parent's point of view, I was thoroughly impressed with the level of play during the game play between the teams. For a group of girls who have been together for <12 hours as a "team" was impressed at how well they played together, how their coaches coached them through different situations. All positive and constructive. I was more impressed with the level of game play at this camp in the 3 hours on Sunday versus the travel volleyball season that my daughter played. Was exciting to watch. Thanks again!."

Irene Moore, mother of Annabella, Western Albemarle, c/o '22


November 7, 2018
"I cannot thank you enough for the simple things you have done for my daughter. After every game, we have been approached by the opposing coach or parents on just how much people like love watching my daughter play. This is all because of your little push. We have had two different clubs offer our daughter invites to play on their clubs' top teams after watching her play. Just that little push coach. Thank-you again for making her a better more confident player and young lady. I am still recruiting for your camp. That is how much I believe in you and your team. No BS, no sales, just volleyball! "


August 14, 2017
"She attended two other camps this summer and yours was by far her favorite. She was already committed to another camp during High Expectations Camp, but hopes to do it next summer. Thanks for your excellent camp instruction and for the way you both challenge and encourage the players!!"


August 4, 2018
"When I was an employee of yours working these camps as a 18-20 year old I knew they were excellent and it was always so fun to watch the girls improve. But now as a school head coach watching my own girls improve so much and have so much fun is AMAZING!!!! This camp has been exactly what the girls needed!!! They have learned so much and improved exponentially already! They look like a completely different team from last year in an awesome way!!! These coaches are so good with them!!! My girls don't do well with people who are insincere and they LOVE your coaches!!! It truly says a lot!!"
Maggie Rusgrove, head coach, Eastern Montgomery High


March 30, 2015
"Hi Coach Houser! I was hoping to ask a favor... I would like to be able to come and watch a camp of yours so I could get the chance to observe new drills and things. I just got the head coaching position at [X] College & I feel a little rusty in that area and would love to come watch and learn from you and your coaches. Do you think something like that would be okay? I would appreciate it very much!"


April 11, 2018
"You have no idea how much we appreciate all you do for [our daughter]! She wouldn’t be where she is both athletically and emotionally without your support and encouragement!!"


October 23, 2016
"n MaxPreps you can set the filter to show all schools in Virginia. My daughter is #5 in aces in ALL divisions and #1 with 1.34 aces per set in the entire state! Your serves work!!!!"


September 25, 2015

"I really appreciate how much you care and actually take the time to find out how we're doing and you're always so encouraging! Thank you so much, it means so much to me. And I honestly feel like if I hadn't went to your camp this past summer that I'd be sitting on the bench this season instead of playing. So thank you for everything."
Carissa Bethel, Magna Vista c/o '17


July 5, 2013
"I wanted to pass on that Emma loved High 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


August 4, 2014.
"No I should say 'thank you'.
You have given Ashlyn a new look at volleyball. You are the best!!"
Laura St Clair, whose daughter attended the 2014 High Expectations Camp


July 15, 2012.
"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. :)
Angie Mays, mother of the 2012 Maximum Expectations, 2013 College Expectations and 4-time STAR camper


July 28, 2013.
"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.


Aug 8, 2010
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)!


Aug, 7, 2008.

 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!
Mellanie Kello, of New Kent, Virginia.

"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,


April 3, 2010
"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.

"Every girl was positive about the camp, everyone said they learned a lot, and every girl said yes they would come back. So that tells you they were all very happy with the camp."

Coach Shirley Brown, host of the 2021 Woodrow WIlson HS STAR camp.


"Coach Houser: I want to thank you for being a part of our program., you are part of the McMichael family.

"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.
