COMMENTS ON "WINNING ISN'T EVERYTHING"

ONE OF THE TOP 11 "MUST SEE" FILMS AMONG 135 FILMS SHOWN AT 2009 TACOMA FILM FESTIVAL

Winning Isn’t Everything...is a...very well made documentary on the NCAA championship women’s soccer program
 at the University of North Carolina.  You don’t have to be a sports fan to enjoy [the] film because [it]... move[s]
 well past the sport that anchors the film...

PHILIP COWAN
Executive Director, Tacoma Film Festival/Grand Cinema

My daughter Briana thanks you... she is the HIgh School goalkeeper
 ...The team watched it and played like a different team and they are still talking about coach Anson
 ...it was amazing how this inspirational story motivated these girls!

It's excellent...well done!


ANSON DORRANCE
Head Coach UNC Women's Soccer

"Winning Isn't Everything" is an insightful peek behind the curtain of this remarkable sports dynasty.
As an author who reproduced Anson's speeches throughout my book, I could only dream about the kind of emotional
 response you can get through actually watching his work on video.  You could feel the power of the film in the audience.

TIM CROTHERS
Author of The Man Watching, a biography of Anson Dorrance


As the women's soccer coach for a Division III college, I absolutely loved your documentary.
  The behind the scenes interaction of the team and the inspirational strategies of the coaches was enlightening.
  I found your documentary to be entertaining, educational, and motivational.

JIM WOODS
Virginia Women's Soccer Coach

I have all of Anson's instructional DVD's so to get a 'behind the scenes' DVD is awesome...I feel it is a
groundbreaking look at a program led by...the best sports coach ever.

STEVEN FRASER
Philadelphia Soccer Coach


I am always on the lookout for...anything I can use to teach my girls what this whole soccer experience should be.
I am a big fan of Anson's (in spite of the fact that I graduated from FSU...
) and his coaching philosophy. He is a genius
 at getting the maximum effort from his girls while teaching what it is to be a good, productive human being.
 
The video is great......enjoyed it tremendously!!!!!!
 
BARBARA BUSUTIL
Treasure Coast High School Women's Soccer Coach, Port St. Lucie, FL

I was messing around on the internet and was looking for some sort of inspirational video to show my high school girls team,
 and came across this and thought i would give it a try. North Carolina women's soccer is the best there is,
 why not get a little more information on the top team in the land.

CHRIS BROLLEY

Mr. Kindem I received and watched the video already 4 times... impressive!
 Mr. Dorrance is simply a genius when it comes to female soccer...  I will recommend this DVD to our players.

JOS CHIANETTE
Girls Soccer Coach, Montreal (Laval), Quebec, Canada


I am a coach for a local U14 girls club team.  I was seeking something to enhance my limited coaching skills
 and found quite an inspirational story.  Thank you for making it possible for us.

WAYNE SHAFER
Girls Soccer Coach, Winterset, Iowa


     Hey Hap, I am a huge fan of UNC soccer (I drove down for the college cup, it was amazing)
  and have been wanting to see Winning Isn't Everything for a while now. I just got it for Christmas and
  it definitely exceeded all of my expectations.. thanks for all your hard work, you did a great job!

LAINE SCHMIDT
 


I have this video and it's just great. It's very inspirational!!!
Had goosebumps the whole way!

GABRIELLE DAVIS



The documentary does a great job of giving an insider's view of
how our team works and why it's a life-changing experience to play for Carolina.

JESSICA MAXWELL
2007 UNC Women's Soccer Team Senior Defender

I teach at a local high school and I am always looking for documentaries to study with my students...
but I am also a coach and I showed it to my volleyball team and they LOVED it.  Inspiring, touching, and real.

EMILY ROBERTS
Greensboro, NC

Yesterday my two high school daughters brought home a sheet describing the
 UNC Women's soccer team core values they had received from their soccer coach.
  I loved it and tried to find an electronic version via google.  That's where I came
upon your DVD.  Am hoping to use it with several teams I am involved with.

PETER LOPEZ
Richmond, MA

What does stand at the forefront of "Winning Isn't Everything"...'is the extent to
 which core values - taking responsibility, resilience, etc. - motivated the athletics.

That's what makes the soccer program so special.'

NEIL MORRIS
The Independent Weekly

I especially appreciated the behind the scenes footage you were able to get...
For my purposes, it helped shore up my background knowledge
 of a team I'll likely be covering for the next month.
