Legends FC is excited to announce the joining together of two great leadership groups that are committed to building the strongest soccer program in Arizona. Through this collaboration, Legends Arizona will field multiple competitive teams, have strong player pools in various age groups and gender, and clearly defined local and National player pathways to achieve their goals.
Legends Arizona’s main priority is to develop the top age level talent in the Phoenix Metro Area. We pride ourselves in developing excellence in the individual and team performance through a consistent and comprehensive training program.
Legends Arizona strives to provide its players with professional-level training, the best possible playing environments, and to develop and nurture the skills and confidence necessary to play at the sports highest levels. We pride ourselves on the ability to progress the player development and setting them up properly for the next level.
Legends Arizona will start in 2020. It will be led by local legend Robbie Findley (Technical Director).
“I’m proud to be a local product of Arizona Youth Soccer and was lucky enough to have both passionate and talented coaches that cared about my team’s future, both on a youth soccer level and personal level. They knew our families, they appreciated the effort we gave to them and that mutual dedication helped develop four professional soccer players from my youth team.
“Those coaches opened doors for me to have successful collegiate, professional, and USMNT careers both at home and abroad. When I came home to Arizona after playing professional soccer, I had no intention of being involved in the game. I then visited local youth games and fields and saw how the landscape had changed. There appeared to be a lack of focus on the details, a disconnect between players and coaches, and that change appeared to only benefit clubs to sign up more players, not build great players.
“I decided at that moment that I wanted to give back to the youth and community the same dedication and opportunity that I was given from my coaches and mentors. I want to give youth the opportunity to become legends.
“I’m proud to have joined together with Legends FC in Arizona to provide a throwback to an elite academy club. I’m excited to provide youth the same dedication I was provided on a youth, collegiate, MLS, and National Team level.
“Joining Legends FC gives us the opportunity to join a first-class organization and provide a top program for Phoenix and the surrounding region. Legends FC Arizona looks forward to building upon our inaugural teams and building the next generation of Legendary Arizona Players,” said Robbie Findley, Technical Director of Arizona.
