Legacy Football Club
Legacy Football Club has two different ways our players can play. We have a “Competitive” side and a “Recreational” side. Below is brief explanation of what each one entails.
Recreational: This is one area that we have begun to tap into over the last few years. Last spring season we had two girls teams, u U/7-8 girls team and a U/8 boys team. Both teams competed in the GBYSL league recreation division. These players practiced twice a week, once in an academy-style setting and once with their team and coach. In the academy-style the players all practiced together under the guidance of the program director, Vanessa Mann. The players had a different theme each week that built on from the previous. The players were taught in a “serious fun” style. In the one hour session the first 30 minutes is dedicated the ball mastery where players are in a 1:1 ball to player ratio setting understanding the 12 different ways the ball can be manipulated by both feet and learning 1-3 different moves each session. These sessions are designed under the direction of the Coerver Coaching method- Vanessa Mann is the only certified Coerver Coaching trainer in Northern Nevada.
Our fall season runs from August-October and our spring season runs from April-June.
Competitive: Our overall goal with our competitive side of the club is to have both girls and boys teams in every age group from u/10 to u/18. As of this past 2012/2013 year we had 10 competitive teams. The competitive teams practice 2-3 times per week with their team. They play in the GBYSL league with games being Saturdays and/or one mid-week game. Our competitive teams also participate in tournaments in the Reno/Northern California region. Depending on the teams ability they may participate in regional and national level tournaments as they continue to grow and get older. For our u/10 and u/11 teams we see no reason for them to travel outside of the Reno/Tahoe area in regards to tournaments. Our u10-u11 teams play in 2 tournaments in the fall and 2-5 tournaments in the spring depending on age, ability and needs.
Our fall season begin in early August and runs till early November. We practice indoors for the months of January-March and then continue outdoor until early June.
