A Maximum Expectations Camp is for the very advanced players.
We also call this type of camp "College Expectations"
Athletes must be:
(a) at least rising 9th graders, and;
(b) have at least 5 competitive seasons of playing experience.

A "season" is either competitive school ball or club ball. 

Rec league, YMCA, county league, summer league, equal-playing-time middle school ball cannot be counted.


The camp host may make a few exceptions.

If a potential camper does not meet the requirements above, but her coach/parents believe that she should be considered for admission, then they will contact the camp host.

Requirements of the Host:

$250 non-refundable deposit due to ensure your camp's reservation;
inimum of 10 campers per session;
FEE:   $12 per hour per camper;;
Have courts ready each morning;
Promote & advertise the camp;
Collect the entry fees.
Reserve hotel rooms (if my staff needs them);
Make plane reservations (if my staff needs them);
Make some copies for the campers before and (optional) during the camp;

Have the payment ready on the last day of camp.

What players receive at a Maximum Expectations Camp:

An experienced staff similar to the High Expectations camps!
How about one adult/college coach per 8 campers!!  YES!!
Even more advanced expectations and drills!
"Chalkboard" sessions regarding scouting opponents
and sophisticated offenses & defenses. 

Some of the topics covered in a Maximum Expectations Camp.

Passing:  Advanced techniques, getting the tough ball up, we will run plays from the dug ball.
 All types, including jump spinners and jump short.
  All digs are expected to be given maximum effort.  Rolling, sprawling, etc. will be reviewed. 
 Avoiding the block, audibles, hitting the quick, the slide and the 3-zone ball; turning the thumb.
Setting:  Running the offense, calling plays with words and with signals, dumps with either hand & deception; advanced communication.  Setters will get more individual training away from the rest of the camp.
 3 and 2 person serve reception; recognizing overlaps; creating and running x's, tandems, etc.
Changing defenses during a match; DS/L will pass and follow; covering will be stressed to the max!
 More advanced 6's drills where running plays will be taught and expected.   


Here is our calendar for summer 2022.   If you're interested in hosting a Maximum Expectations Camp for 2022, please look over some info here, and then please contact me at

And yet, the price is so low!

Even with all that your players will receive,
an Expecations camp is a better value per hour than:
* nearly all other national coach's site camps;
* every other residential camp at a university, and;
* even most day camps at local colleges.

Why Is The Price Of A STAR & Expectations Camps LowerThan Other Camps?
The goal of our camps is not to subsidize our team or to pay for our summer vacation.
On the contrary: Being in the gym with you guys IS our summer vacation! :)
My staff and I direct camps because we love the game
and we love coming to your school!   You'll see!

I am personally no longer able to tolerate a gym without AC. So if your gym isn't AC'd, then one of my outstanding assistants would love to direct your camp!

Let's do a camp or an in-season clinic for your kids soon!

Hope you have a great day off tomorrow and see you in a few weeks. We have a session the Sunday before tryouts!"

"I am sure that you hear accolades all the time about how much the girls in your camps learn about volleyball and the sport. I would like you know that in addition to that, you made a big difference in my daughter's life....she has had a rough year. You gave her wonderful feedback and praise and you really boosted her self confidence. She loves the sport and wants to keep playing, and I know that she feels like she can do it now more than ever after spending the week on your team. Thank you so much for what you do! Take care and we hope to see you next year! :) A mother at the 2014 Analy High Camp.
