Team Info:

In the 2018 Spring Season, it was our intention to offer a Spring Clinic to introduce the sport of lacrosse to new players. We marketed the event in our flyers and website and our intention was to hold it in West Buncombe County at the Buncombe County Sports Park. Due to many unforeseen circumstances, we had to cancel the Spring Clinic. Asheville Empire Lacrosse will offer our traditional Skills Clinic during the 2018 Fall Season at Fletcher Park.

What we will offer this Spring 2018, is an exciting and newly designed program for boys at the 10U/8U level. These young players will be placed in appropriate skill and age groups. Should the number of boys in this group continue to grow, players will be divided into A & B Conferences. A for advanced and intermediate players while B would be comprised of our beginner players, some who are truly new to the sport and have never held a stick in their hands. Assessments will be made the first two weeks of the season. The goal in placement is to foster growth of every player by providing an environment with teammates and opponents of nearly equal skills. Team placement will be based upon (in no particular order): athletic skills, lacrosse knowledge, stick work, level of commitment and attitude.

Practice days for 10U are from 4:30pm – 6:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Fletcher Park (address: 85 Howard Gap Road, Fletcher, NC 28732). HOME games will be played in Fletcher Park on Saturdays and we will play within the Spartanburg Lacrosse League for all our AWAY games. (see game schedules below). Due to the nature of the sport and limited opportunities in our area, we will travel for all AWAY games. At this age group, games are played at Fletcher and in-and-around the Spartanburg area.

Fee Schedule (all fees include required membership to US Lacrosse):

10U: $250 per player (payment plans are offered)

** We offer family discounts for two or more siblings.

Unlike other rec 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.
