About us


The Wisconsin Legends program is under the direction of Dave Johnson. Coach Johnson has 10 years of coaching experience and has a record of 181-34. While coaching at De Pere High School, Johnson won 1 D1 State Championship and was a D1 State Runner-up. Johnson has helped over 100 girls earn college scholarships. 

Wisconsin Legends has always put a great deal of emphasis on skill development. While some programs are focused solely on winning games in the summer and player exposure, we put a major emphasis on player development. Our focus is providing workouts and practices that are developed around individual development and not team development. We feel the girls need to work on their individual games in the spring, summer and fall. Ultimately, our goal is to return the players back to their high school programs better equipped to help their varsity team win games while also having success individually.

We stress WE > Me.

When focusing on skill development, some keys areas we like improve on are:


  1.   Footwork
  2.   Reading screens
  3.   Post moves
  4.   1 on 1 attacking the defender
  5.   Shooting mechanics 
  6.   Finishing around the rim
