Getting its start in the Fall of 2013 with some 20 players, Empire’s Fall Ball Clinics have grown to over 100 participants. Taking place on Sunday afternoons at Fletcher Park, running from mid-September to the beginning of November, beginners are able to learn the game from the ground up, while more experienced players participate in Intermediate and Advanced sessions. Fall 2017 marked the inaugural year of Empire Select, travel teams at 12U and 14U, both competing in tournaments in Greensboro and Charlotte with great success.
Fall Ball Sunday Clinics
Empire runs its annual Fall Ball Clinics on Sundays in September and October. Fall Ball provides opportunities for beginning, intermediate and advanced players to continue their skill development under the direction of experienced Empire coaches. In addition to our clinics, we offer a Fall Travel team for our select advanced players. Travel team practices run twice weekly in September with tournaments in October and November. We strongly recommend participation in Fall Ball for all players interested in playing for Empire during our primary spring season.
