2005 Testimonials


This is what parents of Matrix players are saying about the Matrix Program:

“The Matrix has been a wonderful program for my daughter. Practices/clinics have been aligned perfectly with each upcoming season, and the schedules have been flexible enough for everyone to have an opportunity to participate. The Matrix has sought to fill a huge void in Arlington County sports, and has been unbelievably successful in this endeavor. I hope that this program can prosper long into the future. Thank you.”

“For my granddaughter, the season was terrific. She really improved with much credit going to Coach Tiffiney Carney for her patience and encouragement. I think my granddaughter is starting to "get the feel of the game" and her self confidence is sky high! She is very enthusiastically at Marymount this week and looking forward to post camp next week. None of this would have happened without the Matrix giving Arlington youth like my granddaughter an opportunity. I thank you so much.”

"After my ten-year old daughter attended Matrix skills clinics, tryouts and been a member of a Matrix team, I must tell you how impressed I am with the Matrix program. Simply stated, I think Matrix has found the recipe for great girls' basketball. From start to finish, the Matrix program has focused on the most important lessons for any player or team: the fundamentals of basketball, good sportsmanship and hustle. My daughter is thriving in the Matrix program, growing as a player and a person. Thanks! Keep up the good work."

“Thanks so much for the clinic of yesterday for the girls that did not make one of the Matrix 10U teams. The girls who showed up received a one on one 'tutorial'. It was a wonderful opportunity. My daughter said that she learned more in that one hour and 15 minutes than she had in her entire BB experience up to that point.”

“We have one very happy redhead this morning. If our 4th grade daughter hadn't made the team I was going to thank you for the great program the Matrix runs, seems silly not to tell you anyway. It's obvious that a lot of thoughtful planning goes into the Matrix league, and it's resulted in a program of real integrity. I've had kids in Arlington sports since 1987 or so, and as a parent I've never had a better experience. Our daughter has already learned a lot about basketball from the clinics and tryouts -- we are all very excited that she will have the benefit of an entire season of learning the game.”

“As praise for the clinic/tryout -- I knew that no matter the outcome, my 5th grade daughter would come away with improved basketball skills. I didn't know it would spill into other areas as well. Always a good player, last Saturday, her soccer performance was markedly improved (we had lost internet access for a few days and didn't know she had made a team). When I asked her about this big difference in playing, she said she had gotten used to "hustling" at the Matrix. That, in itself is a gift. Thank you.”

“How fortunate we are to have the Matrix Program! The personal attention the girls receive not only helps them develop their skills but also teaches them sportsmanship and teamwork. It's a slam dunk success!”

"The Matrix is discovering and developing a strong cadre of Arlington girls who can play high-level basketball. Playing with the Matrix greatly improved my daughter's ball and court skills and introduced her to new friends from other schools. She has made amazing progress and has the drive and confidence to try out for the next level. We were very impressed to see two girls who were not playing basketball two years ago make the first Arlington select team after playing for the Matrix. Thank you for the outstanding coaching and for bringing out the best in my daughter. It has been an incredible experience!"

”The Arlington Matrix is about opportunity. Because of the Matrix, my daughter had the opportunity to attend high quality clinics, play on a summer team and go into school tryouts with confidence. She ultimately achieved her goal of making her middle school team. There's a lot of basketball talent among Arlington girls. The Matrix gives them a place to develop it.”
