Don't see which local club they swallowed up. Any idea?
Another pathway to ECNL?
It's a great time to start yet another soccer club in AZ!
I've only heard the 6 out of 7 teams that left RSL went to Legends. They were younger teams though like u13, u12 I believe.
I bet they take over SC Del Sol. IMHO.
That would be crazy! What an awesome rumor though...
Hopefully they are run well and force all clubs to be better. Maybe even add in another (quality) tournament
Which teams left RSL? Boys, girls? North, south?
I dont know the details of all of the teams was just told it was a total of 7 teams in those younger ages under 11 and 6 went to Legends. I think u12 girls and boys, u13 girls and boys all North. Maybe a U11 team but I dont know that one for certain.
If you click on the "Request a Tryout" link, it shows Birth Years 2008 through 2013. Looks like the younger ages. Interesting why they would expand into AZ:
Because Arizona is fast becoming a soccer state. Look at the soccer facilities we have and new facilities that are currently under construction. They would not be built if soccer was not popular in this state. I can easily see why they want to come to Arizona. Arizona has some very talented players across a broad spectrum of age groups. The more competition between clubs, the better. Soccer monopolies are not a good thing. It will knock down Rising and RSL off their pedestals by a few knotches.
So is Legends in AZ or not? Heard about the hype, but haven't heard anything now that the season is starting.
You can DM Robbie Findley on Insta. I recently asked about it and He told me they had 2011 and 2012 age groups this year and would probably be expanding to some older groups next year. No more specifics.
2011 girls and boys have been pretty much dominating at 2011. Definitely in the top 1 or 2 in state. The 2012s aren't too far off either.
I heard the 2011 girls are very good.
Just took a look at US Youth Soccer rankings for the 2011’s and 2012’s. Legends seem to be performing extremely well in both girls and boys. Not familiar with these age groups at all, but sure looks impressive.
