PICKLEBALL TOURNAMENT

Join us for our first Tenacity Pickleball Tournament on Friday, August 9th from 12-3pm! Hosted in Park City, Utah at the MARC, this tournament is a great opportunity for everyone to get outside in support of our cause.

Opportunities to learn

OUR MISSION

The Tenacity Project is a women-led movement that uses lacrosse as a vehicle to provide all girls access to opportunities to learn, play, and live with tenacity.

Tenacious student athletes

OUR PURPOSE

To help girls navigate life’s challenges by providing a supportive environment where they can develop the necessary tools to become successful on and off the field. Through our athletic programs, we cultivate tenacious student-athletes who are goal-setters, problem-solvers, and collaborators. Our players earn the skills to play and live under pressure. We know that adversity cannot be prevented in our girls’ lives, but the translatable skills that our players acquire through sports will help them meet these challenges with confidence and community.

TENACITY

Providing access to elite athletic opportunities

OUR GOAL

  1. To empower all Tenacity players to realize their full potential as lacrosse players and leaders in their communities. 
  2. To remove barriers that prevent girls from playing and staying in the game. 
  3. To grow the game of lacrosse and provide access to elite athletic opportunities regardless of gender and socioeconomic status.
Fun, challenging experiences

OUR APPROACH

We facilitate dynamic, fun, challenging experiences that meet athletes where they are and inspire them to pursue better. We enlist the nation’s best coaches to implement our first-in-class curriculum that incorporates top college training and Olympic development programming. We strategically unite coaches with players and families to create powerful communities of support and enrichment. As a not-for-profit organization, we are proud to be able to provide scholarships to girls in need. We praise effort and train you to train yourself. We possess a deep belief in the importance of mental health fitness and therefore weave journalling, breathwork, and yoga into every session.
