Lessons and Clinics

2019-2020 Season Pre-tryout Clinics

Empire pre-tryout clinics are designed as both a tune up for travel team tryouts for our high school athletes, and as a training ground for younger players. All skill levels are welcome to attend.

Both new and returning athletes intending to tryout for travel teams are encouraged to attend. The more our staff sees athletes, the more accurate eventual tryout placements will be.

These three clinics are held on:

Sunday, October 13th

4:30 - 6:00 pm            4th - 8th graders

6:30 - 8:00 pm            9th - 12th graders

Are you looking to enhance your skills for your middle school, high school, or club program?  

Several Empire Junior coaches are available for private and semi-private lessons. 

Players from any club or not club players, are permitted to contract with coaching staff.  Interested athletes would contact the coach directly and the coach will schedule court time(s).  Coaches will be paid directly for lessons received.

Prices will vary due to number of participants, and will be negotiated with by each coach.  These hour long lessons sessions are structured for 1 on 1 training or small groups (up to 8 girls per session).  Small groups are $25 per session (4 or more) and scheduled directly with the Coach leading the session. 

After scheduling a lesson, should a conflict arise, please contact the coach via cell phone to cancel.  If you fail to contact or do not leave at least 3 hours notice, you must still pay in full for the lesson before scheduling again.

Contact information is below and coordination is through the coach directly.
