With projected completion for January 2022, this massive facility will be an incredible boost to the sport of lacrosse in the East Valley as well as bringing in large national tournaments and making AZ a premier destination for the sport of lacrosse.


“Between the pristine fields that will be dedicated to lacrosse and the world class training that will be offered to each athlete, AZ Hot Sauce will thrive and have so much potential to help grow the game!” said Dan Lannon, Legacy Sports - Director of Boys Lacrosse Operations. “The future is so bright for lacrosse in Az and this partnership gives us a great opportunity to be part of the re-emergence of lacrosse in the East Valley”


Legacy has already booked several regional and national lacrosse tournaments and will host youth and adult leagues, camps, training and events. With 36 fields onsite to host practices, games, jamborees and tournaments of all sizes. When it gets hot outside, Box Lacrosse will be created for our players to improve their skills.  AZ Hot Sauce parents and family members can take advantage of our Legacy Park discounts on food and beverages, parking, training, fitness center and more.


“Legacy only partners with one club within a given sport to become “POWERED BY LEGACY,” says Jeff de Laveaga, COO of Legacy Sports USA.  De Laveaga continues, “Dan has created a great brand and the fact he runs his own events already, was a perfect fit for Legacy.  We are excited to see AZ Hot Sauce Lacrosse, powered by Legacy, grow exponentially over the next few years with the backing of Legacy’s facilities and marketing abilities.”

For a virtual tour of the facility:






Az Hot Sauce is committed to the safety of our players, parents and coaches.  We have developed a COVID Action Plan (CAP) to determine pre-participation screening requirements for participants and for managing spread of COVID-19.  Some of the precautions that are included in the plan are:  


 - No huddles; no pre-or post-activity in-person meetings.

 - No handshakes, high-fives, fist-bumps or skin-to-skin contact.

- All Players MUST bring their own water bottle labeled with their name. 

 -Screening of all players and coaches at check-in.   

 - Players with risk factors or illnesses should not attend.  Any player exhibiting signs or symptoms of any illness will need to leave practice.

 - A two week Acclimation period of light exercise/conditioning to get players back in shape and conditioned to the hot climate with limited equipment and contact.  


Again, this is a short list of our precautions and is not the complete COVID Action Plan.   


All Players MUST REGISTER to ensure completion of the COVID Questionaire and waiver.   The complete CAP will be emailed to all registered participants before the first session.

Why Hot Sauce Travel Teams? 

The Hot Sauce travel program is designed to take players of all ages and to be competitive at each level with the goal of winning the most games while improving the level of play of each individual player.  We limit roster size so that playing time and coaching ratios are maximized. We keep costs to a minimum so that players and families can afford to play and travel.  Our goal is to grow the game in Az, not our pockets.


Our coaching staff is some of the best in Az.  While some clubs tout one or two coaches with actual experience, we have many coaches who have competed and coached at the highest level.  While our coaches have multiple National Championships, State Championships, and Coach of the Year Awards under their belts, it's really about our longevity within the game and the community.  95% of our coaches have been involved in lacrosse their entire lives. Most of us have kids in the program and are motivated by our passion to see the sport grow and succeed here in Az.  That is why we are leaders in the leagues and with many of the teams in AZ. None of us make our living from lacrosse, we just love the game and want to see more kids do the same.
