The Virginia Legacy has spent a lot of time developing a player centric philosophy and age group curriculum. All players, coaches, parents and newcomers to the club are encouraged to read what the Virginia Legacy is all about and how we go about developing players, the club and teams.
The Virginia Legacy Soccer Club will provide teams in 2 areas/communities across the Peninsula in 2021/22. The top players in each age group across all communities will come together to make up the Legacy Elite team at the U11-U19 age groups for boys and girls. These Elite teams will participate in the ECNL Regional League. For the next level of players at the U11-U19 age groups - we will combine the next best players while trying to maintain a certain community "home base" based on the rosters and coaches. These teams will play in the Virginia Soccer League. These teams will be placed in divsions appropriate for their development regardless of the team name.
