We reached out to Coach Matt because my 8th grade daughter needed a little extra coaching with ball handling and her drive to the basket. He has very practical (and clever) skill-based strategies that forced her to recognize and correct everything from her foot positioning, her shooting, and ball handling, making her much more effective on the court. The result was immediate. We saw a huge difference in the next game. She implemented that under-the-basket drive and I was so proud. She just needed that attention to detail. He brings a variety of equipment with him, like cones, tennis balls, and one of those kick boxing type cushions (I don’t know what they’re called) but it helped her think about getting aggressive And shooting through a defender. He explains things clearly and made her work for it, which I appreciated! So happy to see my girl improve!! We will continue to work with Matt through high school try-outs next fall.

Great coach!

Great patience with my son. Thank you.

Coach Matt is awesome and very personable individual... My son gets along with him and enjoyed his first session and I'm quite happy with him... Thank you and much regards...

We had a great experience with coach Matt. It was my son’s first private for basketball and he had a great session.
Thanks coach!

Coach Matt is prepared , engaging and motivational with our young son, during his basketball fundamentals lessons . Our son has shown improved skills with each lesson in ball control , foot work , shooting , stamina/strength and his overall focus.

My 15 year old son just had his first session with Matt over the weekend. Even though the session was an hour, my son said he got more out of that training with Matt than he has for going to 2 practices a week with a team for 1.5 hours long. Matt asked a few question, and got my son involved in answering them, found out what his goals are and went RIGHT TO IT! Ball handling, shooting while tired, absorbing/finishing with contact, reading the defender, footwork, etc. The list can go on. Matt is very knowledgeable and can analyze very quickly what can be corrected and what can fine tuned to detail. I/we are already scheduling our next session and can't wait to see the results from what Matt is teaching. He's very flexible with his schedule and where to meet. Highly recommend Matt for any age, any skill level!

Great first session with my daughter. She quickly responded to his coaching style and excited to continue.

Coach Matt is a great resource to Kody and will certainly improve his game. I highly recommend his services.

Coach Matt was easy to reach, always on time, flexible with our schedule and worked hard the whole hour to improve our son's skills. (My son learned so much and saw improvement right away). He also gave us great feedback every day. We wish we lived here so we could use Matt more!

Ian had a great time with Matt and learned allot the 1st session.

Luke enjoyed his first session with Coach Matt. He covered a lot of fundamentals with Luke and showed great patience. I would recommend Coach Matt.

Our son loved working with Coach Matt. He worked on different drills that he hasn't been exposed to before and we are excited to see his progress over the next few months. We already booked him for another 8 weeks!

My son had a great trial training session with Coach Fogarty. Coach Fogarty was great at communicating with us prior to the session. On the day is the session, he was very thorough with his training and patient with my son. He started off by inquiring about goals and what he hope for my son to gain through the training experience(s). We look forward to more training sessions with him.

Very Good! My son like playing basketball with Matt. I think he will play better with Matt's help.

My two boys are not the most athletic or active, but Coach Matt was very patient with them to start building up the basics. His training routines were both fun and effective. My two boys said they greatly enjoyed the session. Highly recommended.

We love coach Matt!! He is working with our son and is teaching him some really great techniques and correcting bad habits! He was so easy to work with and schedule things with. Super accommodating!!

Coach Matt is a great coach. My son is looking forward to practice with him again in next session.

Coach Matt is great with children. He communicated effectively with my 11 year old son and improved his technique a great deal which helped him to improve his game. I would recommend him.

Coach Matt is great. My son has learned a lot in the few lessons he's had so far.

Coach Matt was a great coach!! My daughter had never played basketball before and loved it. Matt's teaching technique and exercises were enough to challenge her but still keep it fun!! I highly recommend Coach Matt for all skills levels.

I have had the privilege of working side by side with Matt Fogarty and I consider myself capable of, if not expert in assessing his character. After getting to know and work with Matt I found him to be an outstanding basketball player, a friend, and a very caring and devoted person. As a coach, Matt is remarkable. He puts in a great deal of time establishing a very competitive, disciplined, and encouraging atmosphere for every athlete he works with. You will not find a harder worker who puts in countless hours with individual athletes encouraging their success. Matt takes a great deal of time working with players, emphasizing the importance of getting their education and excelling on the basketball court. His players are well coached; relentless extensions of his personality. He gives 100% of himself to his students and takes a lot of pride in turning out top quality athletes who will perform to their given potential. Matt considers one of his most important roles as a mentor for these young men. He leaves no stone unturned in assisting them in their personal growth. I have personally trained Matt for the last four years. Our training sessions go for 1 ½ to 2 hours five times a week. He comes early and is the last to leave, always exhibiting high energy during every workout. Matt is a great listener who absorbs everything said and constantly wants to improve, “his work ethic is through the roof”. Additionally, after each of our individual workouts Matt goes to the weight room to put in another full workout. You will not find another person like Coach Fogarty who is hard working and a dedicated educator. Matt has all the capabilities of assisting in running a successful basketball program at any level. His knowledge of the game is outstanding and he is truly a workaholic. Please feel free to call if you have any questions at (530) 242-2266, or email me at jkeating@shastacollege.edu.
Matt Fogarty asked me to write a letter of character reference for him and I accepted this task enthusiastically and without reservation. Matt has always had a great work ethic as a player so I know as a coach he will bring that same passion and hard work to any program. My relationship with Matt began when he came to play for us at Shasta College 2008-2010. As the assistant men’s basketball coach there I got the opportunity to build a very strong relationship with him. I found him to be a very solid student in the classroom and a very solid student of the game of basketball. The first year was a growing time in his game. When the season ended he started working out very hard to better all of the skills that would make him the best player the next season. With that hard work he helped lead the team to a championship and be voted as the MVP of the conference. He was a great team player and leader on the team. He then went on to have two very good years at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana. There he showed the same qualities as a player by working hard and being a good teammate he made a very big impact on the team. Matt has great character and would be a great asset for any business. He will bring passion for the game, great insight as he was a very intelligent player. During the time he was with us as a player it was exciting to watch him grow into a natural leader. He always encouraged his teammates and was a very good leader by his hard work. I know as a coach he will pass those qualities on to the players he works with. Coaching has always been a goal of his so I know with how I have seen him grow over time you will not find a harder worker to put on your coaching staff. Matt’s great qualities have not gone unnoticed. It has been a great honor to get to know him as a player for two years here and watch him grow even more at the next level at Rocky Mountain. Most of all, it has been a great honor to develop such a great friendship with Matt. So I know who ever hires him on their staff will be just as pleased with his passion for the game and great character.
