Team Info:

In Spring 2018, Empire will offer one Varsity boys team and one Junior Varsity (JV) boys team. Junior Varsity schedule and roster are listed below. We will start the 2018 season with a one-day “First Sign of Spring Play Day” in Matthews, NC on Saturday, February 24.

Due to the nature of the sport and limited opportunities in our area, travel for all divisions/teams is required. Unlike other recreation sports programs in our area, our coaches are not volunteers, rather, they are skilled and certified lacrosse coaches using a curriculum designed by our well-qualified and experienced head coaches.

Weekly Practice Schedule: 5:00pm – 6:45pm – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday – Practice begins February 12, 2018

Practice Location: Memorial Stadium (address: 30 Buchanan Avenue. Asheville, NC 28801)

Fee Schedule (all fees include required membership to US Lacrosse): $299 per player (payment plans are offered) *

* We offer family discounts for two or more siblings.
