College Advisory Program: Letter from the DOC

Our goals at Legacy include helping players prepare for the next level. Many players every year from the Legacy soccer program have gone on to play college soccer and higher. These players have gone on to participate in soccer programs in the NCAA D1, NCAA D2, NCAA D3, NAIA, and Community College at various colleges throughout the country. The Legacy is fully committed to educating and supporting all our players and parents in the college search, recruitment, and application process though our College Advisory Program (CAP).

In support of these aspirations, the Legacy program holds a “College Night” event every year to cover different aspects of the college application and recruitment process. We bring in college coaches and college players from local colleges and from programs outside the state. Our college panel cover all the information needed to guide our families through the whole process and answer any questions during the event. Throughout the soccer season our individual Legacy coaches support our players by helping them with their soccer profiles, communicating with college coaches, picking a top 10 list, and playing in as many soccer college showcase tournaments as possible.

Our Legacy staff has a ton of college experience starting with our Director of Coaching Andy Bonchonsky. Andy played soccer at UCLA and has coached college soccer at the University of California - Berkeley, Loyola Marymount University, and Cal State University of Dominguez Hills along with playing proofessionally and coaching in the USL Pro league with the local Arizona United professional men's soccer team. The majority of our Legacy coaches played soccer in college and many of them also coached at the college level. These coaches are great resources for all our players.

Many soccer players are playing soccer in college today because they aggressively pursued that goal. We teach the players how to market themselves and support them along the way. We are committed to helping all our players realize their dream of becoming collegiate student-athletes.
