Legacy Speech Club exists for the purpose of teaching children to leave a legacy by becoming effective communicators for Christ. Our parent-run club fosters a family environment of fun and encouragement while requiring a high commitment. Please carefully read and prayerfully consider our guidelines prior to club application.

Due to league requirements, families must be homeschooling, not part of a charter school or public school independent study program, and not taking full-time college-level degree program in order to join Legacy and compete in tournaments.

Covid -19 update

Legacy Speech Club will adhere to all county laws regarding Shelter-in-Place orders.

  • For the 2020-2021 school year, club meetings are online.
  • For the 2021-2022 school year, if county guidelines allow, we will meet in person, either in a home, or at St. Timothy’s Church in San Jose, implementing all required social distancing requirements (distance, masks, cleaning protocols, etc.).  If county guidelines do not allow in person gatherings, we will meet online until they are allowed.
