Queen City Legends: Welcome

Queen City Legends

The Queen City Legends are excited to join the newly reformed and highly competitive Southern Ohio Valley Collegiate League in the summer of 2012 for their inaugural season. The Southern Ohio Valley Collegiate League consists of eleven teams primarily from Southern Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and South East Indiana areas with players representing all levels of college competition. From NCAA Division I to NJCAA, The Queen City Legends and the SOVCL seek to provide a great opportunity for high quality college athletes to compete against some of the best and will prepare the athletes for their upcoming fall and spring seasons.

 Based out of Cincinnati, Ohio The Queen City Legends will compete in their first year of existence (2012) as an already top tiered team in the SOVCL. QCL will be managed by Coach Ryan "Dez" Desjardins who has had over fifteen years of playing and coaching experience ranging from high school to the collegiate ranks. Coach Desjardins will be assisted by Coach Ryne McCormick, John Fiasco, Sean Sullivan, and Mark Holland whom all have very high levels of coaching and playing experience that will bring leadership and first-hand knowledge of the game to the players and will help guide the QCL into a successful season.

The great part about playing in Cincinnati and the SOVCL is the exposure to college coaches, premiere league coaches, and professional scouts. We have a tight knitted connection with the area's premiere league teams as well as scouts from around the United States that allows the athletes to showcase their talents. We have had great success, previously in the Southwest Ohio Collegiate League, with having our players play in the premier leagues (Great Lakes, Cape Cod, Etc...) and even have had several players go on to sign professional contracts. This summer offers a lot of opportunity to not only get better but also gain exposure and we strive to see this through here with the QCL.
