In Spring 2019, Asheville Empire will offer programs in the High School, 14U, 12U, 10U and 8U divisions.
At the 10U boys division, our US Lacrosse certified coaches will continue to teach the fundamentals of the game including throwing, catching, scooping and scoring. The 10U group will continue to learn about the true meaning behind the saying “play with intention”. Coaches will assess players over the course of regular practices and team placement will be based on athletic skills, lacrosse IQ (knowledge), stick work, footwork, level of commitment and attitude.
Practices will take place twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5pm – 6pm) and games will be played on Saturdays. Look to the Empire website (on team pages) for the most up to date schedules. Coaches and/or team managers will notify parents and players of any changes.
All new players will be expected to become members of US Lacrosse and returning players will be expected to renew membership to US Lacrosse. Membership fees will not be included in spring registration.
