Rutgers Womens Soccer
 
Glenn Crooks name is a great description of the person he is a CROOK. The coaches at Rutgers have no idea how to coach women and do not teach them how to become the confident women they need to be to survive and thrive in the world we live in, instead the teach them how to be insecure and lack confidence. GO ANYWHERE ELSE, Rutgers is a terrible experience.

Go elsewhere
 
The last post is a very accurate assessment of the Rutgers Women's soccer program. There coaching is suspect at best!! They continue to blame the players for the CY10 season. How about looking into the mirror coaches. You continually made bad personnel decisions, you showed your lack of tactics and poor coaching week in and week out with your kick and run style. It is a shame with all the in state talent you have a difficult time attracting the players necessary to win. What surprises the most, however, is you lack of ethics and personal acumen. You treat these young women like disposable razors. Throw them out when things go bad. Your verbal abuse of the girls should not be tolerated by the athletic department nor the school administration.

If there is a player out there considering Rutgers, think again. This team of coaches doesn't care about the well being of the players, they only care about themselves. In addition someone should look into their recruting something is going on there!!

Rutgers is a solid program. Good coaching, good recruits. I'd have my kid go there.

Didn't PDA just replace their U13 coach with a Rutgers coach?

Isn't a Rutgers coach the Director of coaching for the girls side? coaches their U15s i think?

how can rutgers be so horrible and PDA has such a solid girls programs with the same coaches?

Sad state of affairs with RU Women's Soccer Program
 
OMG--How we wish we had read these posts before we decided to come here, and our complaints are not about playing time, starting, etc. Our daughter did get all of that, but the level of unprofessionalism, the mysoginistic attitude toward women is unacceptable. The inequitable treatment and abuse of women stands as a clear example of Title IX violations, among their many others. They do not ever take accountability for the fast demise of the program. They cannot win because they have scared the soccer out of their players through harrassing coaching techniques that have nothing to do with soccer. It is sad that they encourage players to watch Barca matches (amazing, beautiful soccer)--only to discourage that very play and level of soccer in their own players. They stick with a 4-3-3 formation with coaching strategies and a team that cannot support the same. It is a losing battle. Creativity and any kind of thinking outside the box is punished. They want PDA automotons, their farm team. There is a serious conflict of interest that also begs the question of recruiting violations when 8 of their 12 incoming freshmen are from their U18 PDA team. No one looks to blame the poor recruits; they are just victims themselves in the larger scheme. They will be discarded down the line for their new PDA players. That is the only way these coaches have found to promote themselves. In the last few years dozens and dozens of players and families have address serious grievances with the administration all the way to the top, and promises are made to dismiss the coaching staff, but to date the plot sickens and sickens. It is so sad to witness because there have been amazing, stellar student-athletes that have given their best to support a wonderful university. Hopefully, one day soon the powers that be will finally take the right steps to restore RU's honor and credibility in terms of its women's soccer program.

For now, we concur with the many assessments posted here through the past few years and also reiterate, as quoted earlier by another disillusioned alumni: "If there is a player out there considering Rutgers, think again." These coaches have no true respect for the sacredness of our beloved soccer, for this wonderful university's reputation, and definitely no respect for women.

Follow the trail
 
Maybe if they paid these coaches salaries above what starting administrative assistants make, then they could concentrate on coaching only at the college level and eliminate all the questionable recruiting conflicts and nepotism. Can you blame them? http://www.collegiatetimes.com/datab...&dept=athletic Not saying that there is ever a justification for the poor coaching, but there is a way to fix this beyond simply terminating them February 2013. Bringing other coaches at these salaries does not fix the problem inherently attached to this financial dynamic....

Save the baby....
 
It is sad to realize that these sentiments are common with so many of the women that have come through the Rutgers Women's Soccer program, but I still believe Rutgers is a great university. The Athletic Director, Tim Pernetti, appears to really care and we believe he will be resolving this ongoing thorn in the department's side sooner rather than later. One of the biggest issues is that these coaches are poor communicators, have conflicting career interests to promote themselves in ways that are not in the best interest of the women's soccer program or the integrity of this otherwise great department and university. They will resort to backhanded attacks and slanderous accusations (not even directly addressed at the players to allow them to address the attacks) in their own self-protection, but never following clear communication or equitable standards of fairness with their players. What they seem to strive for is a divided scared team, where the coaches can manipulate and control these beaten young women. No lie can live forever. T with their student-athletes. These poor young women feel bullied and harrassed, and frequently anxiety and depression because they feel helpless. But do not opt to drop out of the program or transfer. Let the fair administration know about your experiences. More than 30 young women in the program have recently directed these issues with the administrators in a position to effect positive changes (mostly already graduated students who do not want this to continue and who can now speak freely without fear of being cut or losing their scholarships, etc.). This is not the norm at university of Rutgers's status and we are hopeful action to rectify these detrimental conditions is in place to resolve this.
