: : : : : Agree with everything you said, especially about the number of coaches at this year EOT Summer Swoosh tourney. The facility (Ladera Sports Ranch) is the state of the art sport facility, with AC, and ALL games are streamed live on twitch tv (for free). Awesome!!

: : : : : : Storm has been lately feeling like a money grab. One game per day, charging parents insane amounts of money, no A/C, bad refs, and then very few coaches who only come to watch Taurasi. At the EOT it was spectacular to say the least insofar as the amount of coaches at each game. Even on some of the back courts coaches would walk back to watch. The seating was scarce however for parents and some games were standing room only. But overall I felt like my kids and parents got their money's worth at EOT. I think George does an amazing job with Taurasi, and all of his coaches put great effort into their tournaments, but they have been lacking lately and actually an embarrassment to say the least. I will be participating next season in whatever the EOT guys have to offer.

: : : : George is a good coach but terrible businessman. Reputation is BIG in business which he seems to not care.

: : : Agree Ladera Sports Center is one of the best facilities in socal, but charging to park this year was a purely money grab. I am guessing ET was collecting that cash since Ladera boasts free parking. Ridiculous!

: : That's a likely scenario, but my guess it was Swoosh's call. As there tourneys have declined over the years this seems like something they would do.

: I rather have a excellent tournament it only brings more players more teams more parents more college coaches. Girls Basketball needs and deserve it far as the cost no one is putting a gun to come but having a great experience is priceless.

EOT/Swoosh did not receive a dime for parking.
Ladera was in charge of parking.
