Women's Hoops Seeks Male Practice Players
July 23, 2014
FORT WORTH, Texas - The TCU women's basketball program has announced it's seeking male basketball players to help take part in practice with the team on a regular basis.
"We utilize the male practice squad to replicate what we will see offensively and defensively from our opponents, as we prepare for games," TCU women's basketball head coach Raegan Pebley said. "We need these guys to be competitive, skilled and have a great understanding of what it means to be a Horned Frog. If you have a love of basketball and respect being a part of a team, then this is a great experience."
The practice team offers the Horned Frogs a chance to practice against someone other than themselves and helps prepare the squad for the rigors of Big 12 competition. Players will be expected to be competitive, knowledgeable and able to take direction from coaches. They will also be outfitted with TCU Nike gear.
All players must meet NCAA qualifications. It is preferable that athletes have high school basketball experience. TCU's scheduled practice time for the 2014 fall semester is from 2:30-5:30 p.m., on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and 2-4 p.m., on Tuesday and Thursday.
For those interested in joining the practice squad, please contact associate head coach Hanna Howard at 817-257-6929 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
