Our Focus: Our primary focus for all players is for optimum development of the essential elements needed in High School and beyond for those who strive to play in College = fundamental skills, game knowledge (game IQ), athleticism (speed, strength, agility, & mobility), teamwork, game length conditioning (stamina & injury prevention) & mental toughness. Additionally, our assignment of players as Team Captains provide leadership opportunities & growth, and we model and expect good sportsmanship on and off the court from our players, staff, parents and fans.
Our Supporters: Vintage High Head Coach Ted Ward & Staff, plus Napa High Coach Scott Blunt & Staff are all in support of this League and we have incorporated input from the staff of these Division 1 High School program's best practices in our player development plans, rules and game formats as well as from Top European Academies and Team USA's Youth Basketball Development Model program (Click HERE for link to Team USA's Youth Basketball website). We also are privileged to have the support of Napa Valley College's Head Coach Steve Ball! No other local league has received the level of experienced support that the LEGENDS HOOPS League has! We also have a large number of parents who have seen first hand our success with their player and who support our efforts each year.
