Welcome to Empire Lacrosse
Asheville Empire Lacrosse is a non-profit organization whose primary commitment is teaching the game of lacrosse to area youth, while also instilling a respect for the game, their teammates and coaches, and ultimately themselves. We offer recreation teams for boys ages 7 through 18. All of our coaches are US Lacrosse certified, and players of all skill levels are taught the fundamentals and strategies required to develop into a complete player.
The 2019 Season will end on Saturday, May 11 with a Play Day at Home against formidable Tennessee teams – Farragut and Kingsport. There will be no Guardian Cup this year.
Empire’s End of the Year Banquet will be on Tuesday, May 14. Festivities are set to start at 5:30PM. Please send your Team Manager an email or a direct message via GroupMe ASAP to let them know how many of your family members will be attending. Please be sure to sign up to bring an item or two.

Head injury, including concussion, continues to be a concern in all youth sports, and as such, US Lacrosse has developed guidelines and protocols using input from national experts on concussion and head injury. These guidelines assist lacrosse organizations such as ours, in the development of a concussion management plan. The guidelines are based on national and international concussion research and consensus statements, and endorsed by US Lacrosse’s Sports Science and Safety Committee.
We encourage all our parents and players to learn more about head injuries, especially concussions. The US Lacrosse guidelines may be accessed online at uslacrosse.org/concussionawareness.
