** Competitive AAU Programs are Regional:
Unlike Travel soccer or Travel/FCYBL basketball teams, AAU team are not defined in geographic terms; e.g. some of the major Virginia AAU Girls' Basketball clubs are the Matrix, Cardinal, Mustangs, Stars and Vogues, none of which are identified by a single locality.
So Matrix AAU, like all competitive clubs, serves players not just from its home base, but from an expanded community all around its home base.
