17U Legends College Development Team

17U Legends College Development Team

Summer/Fall Program

Coached by David Trujillo, the 2018 Legends 17U Summer Team is for serious players who are looking to take their skills to the next level.  A highly touted hitting coach with over 15 years of Head Coaching experience, David’s focus for the summer will be developing skills, competing against the best possible competition, and connecting players with the Colleges where they are interested in playing.  Coach Trujillo and Legends Executive Director David Klein will work with every individual to guide them on which colleges would present the best fit, and will develop a game plan to get players on the radar of their schools of choice.  Coach Klein has hundreds of college contacts, and will help kick-off the recruitment process by initiating conversations with coaches at their preferred schools.
Program Specifics
  • 2-3 practices / week at Menlo-Atherton HS
  • 3-4 out-of-area showcase tournaments (8-10 total tournaments)
  • 2 strength & conditioning workouts/week at Menlo-Atherton HS with Legends Strength Trainer George Peters
  • College consultation, placement assistance and personal goal setting with David Klein
  • Player development & progress will be measured, tracked and distributed (exit velocity, bat speed, throwing velocity, squat, deadlift, bench press, home-to-first running time)
Roster Make-up

Roster will be comprised of 15-18 serious players.  All players must have a goal of playing at the next level.  Pitcher only players will be permitted onto the team. The team will compete in 18U local tournaments and 2019 grad year out of area tournaments. 

Team Commitment

Players invited to compete on this team are expected to play in the Summer and Fall, unless David and player decide a break is best due to arm/body health, and/or for developmental purposes.  Players are encouraged to have a diversified athletic portfolio, and we will work with players wishing to participate in other sports concurrently. A player who plays a fall sport like Football or Soccer can elect to play in the summer only.

Dates & Schedule

Schedule is intentionally light between the end of HS season and finals so players can focus on finishing the school year strong, and to provide throwing arms a period of rejuvenation.  3-week mini-break at end of summer/beginning of school year to allow student to get off to a strong start, and to avoid mental/physical burnout.

    • May 10th – June 7th – Maintenance and Rejuvenation Phase:  short/light workouts 2x / week to keep arm strength and timing at plate  (will not practice during finals week)
