Tenacity National Team members are hand selected and primarily made up of returning players, and new players evaluated during our Summer and Fall Academy Training sessions held in Northern CA, Utah, Oregon and Washington. We have 1 pure National Team for each graduation year, 2022-2028, made up of the best players in each region. Each team has at least 2 dedicated coaches and rosters are typically 18-20 players. Through the National Team program, our goal is to bring the best players from the Western states to the most competitive tournaments in the country, most of which are on the East Coast. Our National Team players are highly sought after by top D3, D2, and D1 NCAA, NCIA and top club programs.
