An Exceptional Athletic Experience!
Similar to a Division 1 program, there will be a lift, conditioning, or agility workout almost everyday.
Players will have time everyday day with 1 on 1 or small group instruction with a coach.
Team Practice & Competition
Take care of the small things, and the big things will take care of themselves. We will be a fundamentally sound baseball team. We are not restricted by VHSL regulations, and can practice daily.
College Recruiting Process
We will have a recruiting profile and have free access to a recruiting platform. This platform will allow coaches to see game clips, training clips, and see academic information.
Legacy Park Academy Athletic Experience
The development of an athletes strength, and sport specific movements are essential to take their game to the next level. To address this, we will have a strength and conditioning coach on site to design sport specific workouts and agility training.
Similar to a Division 1 program, there will be a lift, conditioning, or agility workout almost everyday. This experience will lead to huge leaps in player development, and shorten the learning curve when they get to college.
The development of specific baseball skills will be tailored to each player. Players will have time everyday day with 1 on 1 or small group instruction with a coach. These sessions will focus on specific baseball skills.
Students will be students of the game. We will always provide tools and opportunities, but we do not believe in cookie cutter coaching. As team, the coach and player, we will develop a plan that best suits the individual.
Team Practice and Competition
“Take care of the small things, and the big things will take care of themselves.” We will be a fundamentally sound baseball team. We are not restricted by VHSL regulations, and can practice everyday. We will follow a Division 1 routine: Fall season is about getting the team on the same page in practice, and scrimmaging. Winter is devoted to getting stronger, faster, and improving individual skills. Spring is ramp up and go time!
We will be playing a competitive schedule that includes some of the best schools in Virginia, as well as out-of-state schools. We will even have a chance to practice with and play against college teams. All of this is a recipe for college coaches being interested and recruiting our players.
College Recruiting Process
It is important that students and parents and coaches are on the same page and communicate. We will have meetings at the beginning of every year, and throughout the year, to discuss college goals. We will discuss what schools might be good fits, which are “reaches”, we will establish what our academic desires are, etc. Talking about these things defines what we want to achieve and gives us a north star.
Ex. You want to play at Duke? This is what you need to do academically to even be considered. Here is what you need to do athletically to be competitive for a spot there.
Now that we have our goals set, we are ready to communicate with college coaches.
Through LP Academy, players will have a recruiting profile and have free access to a recruiting platform. This platform will allow coaches to see game clips, training clips, and see academic information. Coaches are even able to contact the player directly if they wish.
On top of the recruiting platform, our coaches will take advantage of their extensive networks to speak with college coaches and find the right schools for our students. We will also work with your travel organization to tag team the process.
We will be here to help guide you in the right direction, and give you advice.
Once our players have moved on, we welcome them back with open arms! One of the best parts of college breaks is having your old players come home, workout with the current guys, share their wisdom, and new experiences as they take reps with our guys.
The goal of Legacy Park Baseball Academy is to run as close as possible to how a Division 1 baseball program functions. This begins with our recruiting process. Recruits will receive initial contact from a LP coach after being seen at a game, showcase, or after the player has reached out. Once a mutual interest has been established, and preliminary conversations have been had, the recruit and his parents will be invited to come take a tour of the facility. During a tour, we will walk through what a normal day would look like. My goal for a tour is to “PAINT A DREAM”. Recruits and their parents should feel bought
