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 and competitive teams for boys and girls ages 6 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.

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.
