“A good product at a good price is easy to sell.”
head coach of Westover Christian, in Danville, Va and host of STAR
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
and a 2011 STAR camp.
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

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
Head Vball Coach, Timberlake Christian, STAR host coach in
"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."
Head Vball Coach, Timberlake Christian, STAR host coach in
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
Penni Douglas, host of a
2007 Camp at Oconee Christian
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.
When you schedule a STAR camp
for 2011, YOU are in control!
You make the critical decisions that are in the best interests of
You decide the number of days;
You decide the number of hours;
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
I will create all the handouts, take care of the warmups and
and plan the activities each day.
But the best thing about my STAR camps is:
cost is up to
than the residential camps your players will be considering,
and up to
than the national site camps that you may be considering!
& I will confer each day to ensure your kids receive the
that will help improve their performance on YOUR

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 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.

DECEMBER 1, 2011!!!
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
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.

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
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

Just email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org 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

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.

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!"
