What people fail to remember once you get outside the top 15 schools or so these coaches are leaving or getting fired all the time. They don't make that much avg $40k+ so for many its not a lifelong job. When kids were verbaling in 8th grade you were hoping the coach was there 5 years later. With the move to junior year there is a much better chance the coach that recruits your daughter will still be there.
From experience, coaches almost always honor the commits they inherit but then find ways to get out of and push or force inherited players out of the program to free up those scholarship slots year 2
and 3. They make it miserable for girls they don't want around
Not all scholarships are guaranteed for four years, plenty of schools it changes from year to year
Scholarships are year to year ....... you are correct.
Some are some are not .Have never heard of the let's make life miserable thing , again let's hear the coaches who have supposedly done this .
All athletic scholarships are year to year
This may be true on one level. We had many offers outlining each of the four years of partial scholarships with the open end of adding additional based on performance. But the minimum was guaranteed. It has to be, how else can you plan?
