The Tenacity Project Mission

To advance the sport of women’s lacrosse by creating a competitive environment where players and coaches are empowered to reach their highest potential.

Who We Are

We are a national movement to get more girls playing lacrosse and learning life lessons through sports. We run a diverse mix of programs including – camps, club teams, coach development, community outreach, and college counseling.

What We Believe

We believe that we can help young women navigate life’s challenges by providing a supportive environment in which they can develop the necessary tools for becoming successful on and off the field. Through these athletic programs, we can help student-athletes become adept at goal setting, problem solving, performing under pressure, and working well with others. It is important that our athletes learn to compete hard but also gain an understanding of how to win and lose with class and grace.

  • We believe that CHAMPIONS have TENACITY
  • We believe in  multi-sport athletes
  • We believe in playing outside
  • We believe in finding THE FIT (when it comes to the college process)
  • We believe in training athletes to train themselves.
  • We believe in self advocacy
  • We believe in spreading the “Way of Tenacity”

What We Do

We COACH, we UNITE and we FACILITATE- We coach players and we teach other coaches.  We unite officials, coaches, schools, and communities to create programs that are beneficial for young girls. We facilitate opportunities for the best players to compete with and against each other on a national scale.
