Can you tell me about how Legacy handles the signing of student athletes who want to play at College?
By the Friday before the early signing date each year, coaches are to gather and send to the athletic office, the names of athletes, sport, and where they are signing. We will not have an official signing ceremony at Legacy, however, coaches and parents may share with the athletic office any photo's of small private ceremonies/acknowledgements that may take place so we can share with local media outlets such as BOCO preps at that time.
National Letter of Intent Signing Day
This day is the first Wednesday of February. In 2018, this will be February 7th. We will have a ceremony at Legacy starting at 1pm in the Auditorium followed by a reception in the commons for all families and friends. All committed athletes at that time will be included in this ceremony. All information about the athlete including names, colleges, and sports of those athletes, need to be shared with coaches and the athletic office prior to the Friday before the ceremony (Feb 2nd).
Spring Signing Ceremony
This year, and moving forward, we will include athletes in sports that have committed late in the year (after the Feb 7th date). We have found that wrestlers, track stars and numerous late commits have missed out on an opportunity like this. Therefore, we will conduct a similar ceremony at Legacy for those athletes. This date will be the 3rd Wednesday of April (due to numerous conflicts with space), starting at 1pm.
