The Tenacity Project curriculum is designed to prepare young women for success and continued growth beyond our programs. At Tenacity, players learn the tools and life skills necessary to excel at the next level — as collegiate athletes, students, professionals, and community leaders. Our alumni carry our mission forward, as they become mentors of the next generation and ambassadors of Tenacity around the world.

In 2007, we started with 80 players, whose skill levels and commitment varied widely. By 2017, the Tenacity Project had grown to include over 1,000 girls participating in team programs alone, in addition to thousands of players impacted by our camps, clinics, tournaments, and player-coach development initiatives throughout the country.

To date, Tenacity has graduated over 600 girls in the Bay Area, Houston, Portland, Sacramento, and Utah with over 400 girls who have played or are currently playing at the collegiate level. At Tenacity, our alumni are the mission and the product; the soul and the spirit of why we do what we do.

The accomplishments of our Tenacity alumni speak for themselves. To name just a few:

  • 100 percent of our Tenacity program graduates have gone to college
  • Over 400 Tenacity alumni have played lacrosse at the collegiate level
  • 4 Tenacity players have represented the U-19 US National Team
  • 2 Tenacity players have won gold at the U-19 World Cup

Over 75 collegiate lacrosse programs have been represented by Tenacity alumni, including:
