Deck the halls and find the presents. Christmas is imminent. There’s nary a more joyful or stressful time for gifters than locating the perfect item for the many special people in our lives. Instead of agonizing over online reviews and stressing over shipping speeds, save yourself by sending what any Horned Frog or Fort Worth sports fan will be giddy over: TCU basketball.
Both men’s and women’s Frog hoops have tipped off their stacked non-conference schedules and are hopping past their opponents in Schollmaier Arena. There are other options for attending live sports, but none as convenient or affordable as supporting your local Frogs. Just in time for the holidays are special ticket packages with unbeatable values for your super Frog fans or aspiring athletes.
Show up and support head men’s coach Jamie Dixon – already a member of the Horned Frog Block T Association Hall of Fame – as he strives for his fifth national coach of the year award and TCU’s second NCAA tournament invitation. Fresh from leading the U19 USA men’s team to a Gold Medal in the FIBA World Cup (including star Frog point-guard Mike Miles Jr.), Dixon brews upsets as deftly as hot chocolate. Miles, who leads Dixon’s squad in scoring, is a pre-season All Big-12 honorable mention amongst a stacked conference which has four squads in the top-25 rankings. The best way to gift Frog hoops for the fanatics in your life is with the Keep It Purple Mini Plan. This package is the only way for non-season ticket holders to guarantee a seat to witness the TCU men rebound with the defending national champion Baylor Bears, the LSU Tigers during the annual BIG 12/SEC Challenge, top-20 ranked Iowa State, or the top-10 ranked Kansas Jayhawks.
If you’re looking for more flexibility, or perhaps to entertain a larger group, the Frog Flex Pack is just what Santa prescribed. Women’s hoops coach Reagan Pebley is leading the Frogs during her eighth season as head coach. Pebley’s Frogs – who finished second in one of the best conferences in the country in 2019-20 – is armed with fifth-year point guard and team leader Lauren Heard, the pre-season all-conference selection is leading the team by example with the most points, assists, rebounds, and steals on the roster. Watch as Heard, who is now a graduate student in her final season, wraps up one of the most decorated and record-book rewriting careers in TCU women’s hoops history. $40 guarantees you 10 vouchers, each redeemable for a ticket to a game of your choice; attend 10 games by yourself or take nine friends or family along to one game, the Frog Flex Pack gives you the freedom to choose. Each customer is limited to four packs, so act fast for the ability to make it rain gifts all-season long.
Even with all of the festivities and obligations that come with the holiday season, parents are often befuddled by entertaining their little miracles during their school break. TCU hoops has you covered there, too. Holiday Hoops runs the entirety of TCU’s student holiday break and offers $10 general admission tickets for men’s home games, and $5 general admission for women’s home games. In addition to copping your pictures with Santa, add a photo-op with SuperFrog that’ll become the family’s newest and most anticipated tradition. Follow this link to find the single-game or promotional package that will keep making memories all year long.
