In Spring 2019, Asheville Empire will offer programs in the High School, 14U, 12U, 10U and 8U divisions.
At the 12U boys division, teams will be divided into advanced and developing groups. Boys will continue to learn the fundamentals of the game, continue to learn how to play with intention and begin to learn strategy. 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.
Unlike other rec sports programs in our area, our coaches are not volunteers, rather, they are skilled and certified US Lacrosse coaches using a curriculum designed by our well-qualified and experienced head coaches.
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.
Stay tuned for practice days/dates/times.
