What year did you start with Legacy? 2008
Favorite Legacy Program: “kickball league, flag football & multi-sport madness.”
Favorite Legacy Memory: “I always love the first day of a summer camp. The kids and staff are so excited and filled with anticipation of what games they'll play. I always like testing out new games for the first time at camps. The kids really like giving their input on the game, what we should name it and how it can be made even better. You also cannot beat the atmosphere around Legacy flag football playoff game.”
