Empire lacrosse was created when CEO Trevor j. Kearney thought of the idea that lacrosse was getting more popular. He thought that it would be a cool idea if he could come up with designs for gear that are lighter, more protective, and CHEAPER. This line of lacrosse gear features very high quality products that are more for the price that people can afford. No more $300 gloves. Hear at Empire our products never get higher than $200.
