TCU Women's Basketball Coaching Clinic a Success
Oct. 18, 2004
FORT WORTH, Texas
The TCU women's basketball coaching staff hosted a clinic Oct. 2 and it was a huge success. Over 110 coaches from all over the state of Texas and even some from Oklahoma were in attendance at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. The clinic was the sixth annual event hosted by head coach Jeff Mittie and his staff.
The event began with morning instructional sessions from Mansfield Summit H.S. coach Samantha Morrow, Georgetown H.S.'s Rhonda Farney and Randy Sherman from Southlake Carroll H.S. The coaches then enjoyed some lunch courtesy of Mama's Pizza and were then shown some drills used by the TCU coaching staff. Skip Townsend of Brock H.S. also demonstrated his 60-minute workout before the throng headed to Blue Mesa Grill for a reception.
"It was a fantastic Saturday," Mittie said. "It was one of the best clinics I've been associated with. It's easy to see why the high school coaches who spoke have been so successful. The clinic was a great setting for all the participants to see how to improve their teams."
During the clinic, the coaches also got a chance to visit the new Ed & Rae Schollmaier Basketball Complex. The facility opened this past April and houses the men's and women's basketball staffs. It features two full-size basketball courts and gives both programs the flexibility to practice at any time. Many of those in attendance remarked that the SBC was second to none.
"The clinic was very beneficial to me basketball-wise, and I was also very impressed with the basketball and academic facilities available at TCU," Amarillo Tascosa High School coach Randy Courtney said. "I've traveled to a lot of clinics around the country and those facilities are some of the best around."
