Today’s athlete finds themself pressed for time with homework, social activities, athletics, religious commitments, family, and other extracurricular activities. Below is a list of priorities when followed in order has always lead to personal happiness and good time management:
- Faith- No matter what religion you are a member of you should put your relationship with God first. If you have a youth group or religious commitment you are involved with, our coaches will work with you to make up practice time. YOU MUST COMMUNICATE YOUR COMMITMENT WITH YOUR COACH!
- Family- Family should always be a top priority. You should be there for your family, and your family should be there for you. Friends will come & go, but you are stuck with your family forever.
- Academics- Good grades should be a top high priority for every Matrix player. In case you don’t know, volleyball is a “thinking person’s” sport. One of the first things a college coach will do is look at the candidate”s grades. This gives them a snap shot of the athlete”s mental fortitude. It will tell them if a player has the mental skills to play at their level. They may not be the smartest individual, but they have a high work ethic that makes their good grades possible.
- VOLLEYBALL- Club Matrix Volleyball will take your game to the next level. We have coaches who are highly trained & have played on many different levels.
