About Sports Performance:

Our greatest mission as a Sports Performance Staff is the continued development and impact on our own Legacy athletes. This means more than just incorporating off-season training opportunities as a part of the Legacy club experience. Our Sports Performance staff has worked extensively in conjunction with our club directors to provide an annual sports performance periodization plan for all sports, and every individual. Being able to deliver this level of impact not only helps maximize on field performance for our athletes, but over time will pay huge dividends in reducing the occurrence of injuries, and develop long-term, sustainable movement habits.

Learn more about Sports Performance at different ages here:

Foundations of Sports Performance, Ages 8-11
Introduction to Sports Performance, Ages 12-14
High School Sports Performance, Ages 15-18
Foundations of Sports Performance, Ages 8-11

Ages: 8-11u
Frequency: 1-2 times per week
Intensity: 30-40 minutes
Goals:

  • Warm-Up: This will prioritize common and recurring movements related to all sports and general activity – running, sprinting, backpedaling, shuffling, jumping, hopping, crawling, balancing, etc.

  • Introducing basic speed & agility concepts: accelerating, decelerating, landing, changing directions, ladders, etc.

  • Having fun: This might be the most important goal of all. While sports performance at the youth ages can still be goal focused, we want kids to enjoy being active and in the process have fun, play games, and sweat a little too!

Introduction to Sports Performance, Ages 12-14

Ages: 12-14u
Frequency: 2 times per week
Intensity: 50-60 minutes
Goals:

  • Warm-Up: At the middle school ages the warm-up becomes more advanced, teaching specific movement skills and increasing their training intensity and demand.

  • There is an increased emphasis on technique when performing drills and/or movements.

  • General strength development: Just like their speed and agility, this will start by learning proper execution of body weight exercises, more specifically lower body strength and core stability. As they get closer to high school there will be a gradual transition into resistance training.

High School Sports Performance, Ages 15-18

Ages: 15-18u
Frequency: 3 times per week
Intensity: 50-60 minutes
Goals:

  • Sports Performance at the high school ages includes:
    Effectively planned warm-up
    Movement preparation
    Speed and agility technique
    Strength training and development

  • An effectively planned warm-up will include, but is not limited to the following: CNS activation, plyo prep, ankle mobility, glute activation, hamstring lengthening, hip mobility, anti-extension, anti-rotation, t-spine mobility, shoulder stability, quadricep lengthening, and dynamic preparation.

  • Sessions will incorporate all of these elements. After the warm-up, most sessions will include 15-20 minutes of speed and agility, followed by 30-40 minutes of strength training.

Sport Specific Sports Performance

Baseball

Sports performance training for our Legacy Baseball athletes prioritizes the off-season period (October – March). During this time we offer in depth program opportunities for all 12u-18u individuals and/or teams. The majority of these options are small group focused, (6-8 athletes) but there is also programming in place for those interested in more personalized options or even training packages for an entire team. 

Ages 12u-14u
Our Intro to Sports Performance program is broken up into 2 sessions. Each session time will be spent both on the field improving speed, dynamic power, and change of direction as well as in the weight room. Weight room emphasis will vary depending on the age of the individual and their specific training needs. At these ages the timing in which individuals are growing and developing can be drastically different, so athletes are assessed on an individual level beforehand to help identify which group/program(s) would be the best fit.

– Session 1: 10-Weeks
Starts/Ends: October 3rd – December 15th

– Session 2: 10-Weeks
Starts/Ends: January 2nd – March 9th 

Training packages include 2 and 3-day options
Training sessions are 50-60 minutes in length

Ages 15u-18u
We offer 10, 15, and 20-week off-season training options for our high school baseball athletes. Both 3 and 4-day options are available. 

– 20-Week Off-Season Training Program
Starts/Ends: October 3rd – March 9th

If you are motivated to compete at the next level and baseball is your primary off-season focus, then this is the best training option for you. 

– 15-Week Off-Season Training Program
Starts/Ends: November 14th – March 9th 

If you are tied up during the early fall months because of another sport (football or soccer) but you are able to commit once those seasons end to an off-season prioritizing your physical development, then this 15-week program is for you. 

– 10-Week Off-Season Training Program
Option 1 – Starts/Ends: October 3rd – December 15th
Option 2 – Starts/Ends: January 2nd – March 9th 

If you are uncertain about being able to make a full 20-week commitment because you either play another sport or have other commitments/engagements, then we recommend starting out with one of the 10-week options.

Training packages include 3 and 4-day options
Training Sessions are 55-70 minutes in length

If you are looking for flexible and accessible off-season training, then these packages are for you! Each of these packages will include speed/agility training as well as weight room training.
