"Excellence on and off the field" ... interesting.

TCU orally committed to several North Texas 95 Girls (2013s) during their Junior Year and then rescinded the offer their Senior Year ...  The girls had all been offered $$$ spots on other good teams during their Junior year, but turned them down to play at TCU ... This left those girls that had been offered $$$, scrambling to find spots their senior year after all the $$$ at other programs was gone.

Coaching change, but still very bad form in your own backyard ... Most programs honor such commitments (especially if local club girls that you may want to recruit from in the future ... or squeeze money out of for camps) ... So, "TCU coaching staff" on the "TCU campus" isn't much of a selling point to me ... although perhaps TCU is a top choice for training on "Deception with the ball" as noted above.

SMU and Texas changed coaches but still honored their commitments  ... and let's face it, those are both better programs.



PS ... "Jaunary 14-April 9"  ... not sure if this speaks to the academics at TCU, but it's "January" ... it's a "sinch" if you use spellcheck.

Wow, if that's true, then the soccer community in DFW should not support the TCU program.  Spend your money at SMU or other area colleges where they keep their word.

Bell has a wider national base to recruit players since he came from a top 10 program at Fla State. So he looked at the recruits and said ' I can get 50 other players from fla,cal,nj,international next year that are better than these girls, why should I be stuck with them for 4 yrs?' so he de-committed them. I guess he didn't fear the NTX soccer fallout since he was probably not going to focus his recruiting on NTX. Its not right but he apparently didn't care about his reputation...

"The class features seven athletes from the state of Texas, three from Illinois, one each from Florida and California as well as a talented midfielder from Spain. Inking letters were Patry Carrion (midfielder, Spain), Shannon Coffer (goalkeeper, Spring), Jennifer Donegan (defender, Coto de Caza, Calif.), Lexi Harris (midfielder, Plano), Maddie Hayes midfielder, Spring), Jessica Hoyt (forward, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), Ally Lantz (defender, Eugene, Ore.), Brittany Little (defender, College Station), Molly Kate McLaughlin (defender, Arlington), Michelle Mottonen (midfielder, South Barrington, Ill.), Megan Murphy (midfielder, Carroll), Michelle Prokof (forward, Gurnee, Ill.), Lauren Sajewich (midfielder, Frankfort, Ill.) and Julia Thurston (defender, Austin)." - btw harris is a jr transfer from UT, played for RH at Txns.

I see more international recruits for tcu in the future since fla state was heavy on them as well as fla & cal girls with some northern players begging to leave the cold north.

Hi there. From what I see on the website, the cost is $650 for essentially 13 sessions? Can you please elaborate on what makes this program so much different that say a Coerver or any other focused skills sessions of that ilk please? $50/session seems kind of high to me. There are great skills-focused coaches everywhere that are really good in their own right. Maybe some insight into curriculum, methodology, etc. please. Thank you.

BarcaFan ... you probably missed it, but spelling wasn't really the point of my post.  You were probably busy "sinching" those "Sinch Sacks".  

Dr. Soc ... I hear ya on the national, international recruiting ... keep in mind that the girls weren't run of the mill, they were starters for top N Tx teams ... commitment is commitment (or in TCU's case, not so much).  N TX Girls of similar calibre are playing for OK, OK St., Texas, SMU, etc ...  Let's also face the fact that their hot 95 2013 replacement selections and the brilliant year 2 coaching doesn't seem to be tearing it up either (Reference '02 discussion of Week 3 predictions ... tie in to TCU).

Basically, the TCU coaching staff is coming on here advertising this awesome and awesomely expensive camp implying that in addition to getting some skills, little Suzy will also get some exposure to TCU coaches ... wink ... nod ... and
Wink it could pay off for little Suzy in the future.

The post also references "The vision of The Elite Soccer Project is to encourage excellence on and off the field".  

How in the world would TCU coaching staff begin to teach excellence off the field when they don't keep commitments? Character is Character ... and TCU Soccer Coaches showed their lack of Character (and continue to do so ... again reference '02 discussion of Week 3 predictions ... loser coach shoving winner coach).

Also Kenshi,  remember that the current women's TCU Assistant Coach was ousted by his club as the Coaching Director of the Dallas girls teams around that same time.  Funny how some of those same girls that he had coached lost those scholarships. Although the club was upset with TCU for pulling the rug from under those girls, they still have allowed that former Coaching Director to work within the club today.

Still work within the club, yelling f-bombs at 11-12 year old girls, and shoving the opposing coach after a game. But, hey, if the parents and the girls are ok with it, that's their own issue. They could take care of it if they wanted to.

Yes same old antics but seems to be able to "talk" his way out of anything. The people at LHGCL should be ashamed of themselves if they let him get away with his latest antics with the Rush Coach.  They hold parents accountable if they sneeze at a ref,  but a coach can make a complete idiot of himself in front of 4 teams and have no consequences....!! I guess you make more money off of parents and kids paying fines than you do off of crazy coaches...

No doubt, this is bad business. I've heard of things like this happening for football and basketball players at big schools when there are coaching changes, but it's not exactly headline news for women's soccer, is it? Things like this are a reminder to anyone with an athletic scholarship that oral commitments are not guarantees. The better bet for guaranteed college funding is through academics. If a kid keeps her grades up, the scholarships are renewed far more often than not. But a scholarshipped soccer player who sustains an injury while playing, doesn't meet the coaches expectations, or is the subject of a "better" player showing up to take her place can lose out from one year to the next.

To be fair, the flip side of it is that athletes can and regularly do break verbal commitments to colleges all the time. It's funny how this is often portrayed as a change of heart whereas a college coach would always be branded as deceptive.
