More FAQs

What makes Legacy different:
     We are a "local" program that focuses on the player first.  Any player that is selected for a Legacy team will see considerable field time during events.  While we do play to win, we do not minimize player rotation to secure a victory.  This creates a development opportunity for all players. 

What is your "Philosophy":  
     No player takes the field intending to do poorly.  This means there is no need to yell or curse at players on the field.  We use practice, sideline discussions, and one-on-one conversations to coach your player.  
     Parents need to parent while coaches coach.  Sideline enthusiasm is great but should be inspiring and not counter productive.

What about recruiting:
     NCAA rules do not permit player/coach communication until after the Sophomore year.  We focus on player development, competitive tournaments, and identification of appropriate showcase and camp opportunities.  As a player reaches High School, we develop a recruiting profile with them and help the player/family create a target list.  Our coaching staff currently communicates with over 100 College programs.
     We believe that a player is better off by playing in competitive local events and complimenting that with select training or camp opportunities.  This helps to minimize the expense to the family and allows for more of the right opportunities.
