Elite School Teases my Daughter (Soccer)

January Showcase, 2 Assistant Coaches from an Elite School, Tells GK coach and Team coach, "Your daughter is perfect for our program and will be our anchor 2021 recruit. We want to see her train. We will fly down to see her train."
March training, Head Coach and Assistant Coach fly down to see her train. She is nervous and is not herself. They tell the coaches what she needs to work on and will keep watching.
An email response from Head Coach after Daughter thanks them for visiting her asks her to fly up for an ID camp. Daughter performs well, as well as the Showcase in January.
Before the July Showcase, Head Coach txts Team Coach to say they will be there to see her play. They are a NO SHOW.
Similar experience from anyone?

    Things happen even in coaches families, in scheduling, with budgets. I'd have her send a note saying, "Sorry you weren't able to come to the Showcase. Are you going to be attending any other camps or showcases where I could meet up with your? Can I send you any videos or coaches notes from the showcase?" Still interested, etc.

    In lax, for the major showcases, the coaches all have access to every game on video. If that's the case, your daughter could include which games she was in and if she made any great plays.

    @SoCCrDad Sounds like typical recruiting process to me. It’s even harder on the boy’s side. Coaches AND players are speaking with lots of recruits & college coaches. Things change depending on the day, who you are hearing from etc. You have to be consistent and patient. @twoinanddone has given you good advice.
