Established in 2013, Empire Lacrosse is an Elite tournament lacrosse organization focused on teaching our kids about dedication, team work and sportsmanship. We've attracted two of the MLL's hottest stars, Jake and Jesse Bernhardt, and with their coaching and guidance, our team has a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from the best, to be the best. We are so excited to be starting our inaugural year with such dedicated staff, volunteers, sponsors and team!


A Family Affair: The Bernhardt Brothers

For the Bernhardt brothers, the journey to success with the MLL all started in their backyard in Longwood, Florida. Growing up in a football town, Jake and Jesse Bernhardt thrived as athletes, but their opportunities with the sport of lacrosse were limited. Lucky for them, one was more defensive minded, and the other more offensive minded, which provided the perfect set up for them to practice against each other in the backyard.



Thank you!

The Empire Lacrosse Organization finished up our first tournament season and would like to thank our sponsors, supporters, coaches, families and most of all our players! Watching the growth of this team and individuals was a gift and we thank everyone involved.

Coming home to the Orlando Open and taking 2nd place against some very talented and established teams was a testament to the dedication and hard work that everyone put into this organization.

As our players go back to their club teams for the spring season, we wish everyone well and hope to see you back next season. As we get closer, keep an eye out for announcements regarding the 2014 tournament schedule!
