Atlanta Empire Lacrosse - the New Era!

Atlanta Empire Lacrosse is one of Metro Atlanta's most successful elite lacrosse development programs. At AEL we develop players from U9-U19 propelling players to a higher level of play. We believe every player has the potential for greatness. We offer many options for our players at every level. AEL is a year-round development program that focuses on individual skill building, team development, and improving lacrosse IQ.  We send our teams to some of the most competitive regional and national lacrosse tournaments in the country. Many of our players are among the top lacrosse players in the Southeast and many of our high school players have gone on to play for some of the best NCAA D1, D2, and D3 college programs around the country.

Atlanta Empire Comes up BIG in HoganLax-Hershey - July 13-14

We had a fantastic time in Hershey, PA, on the weekend of July 13th and 14th, after an awesome couple of days in the beautiful polo country of Poolesville, MD, just outside of Washington, DC.  Our teams truly came together as did our families.  We had a hugely successful weekend for our program.  Our 2020 and 2021 teams both went undefeated for the 2nd year in a row and repeated as Tourney Champions!!!!  Quite an accomplishment playing teams from Long Island, Texas, Pennsylvania, Maryland, etc.  Our 2022 had 2 OT games and just missed the championship.  Our very young 2023/24/25 team had a great weekend and made huge strides!!  We are SO proud of our boys and can't wait to keep the momentum going this Fall!
