The Tenacity Project: Game Changer Program
Empowering One Girl at a Time


The Tenacity Project is excited to announce the launch of our Game Changer Program.  Beginning September 15th, donors will have the opportunity to sponsor a girl to “Play with Tenacity.” The Tenacity Project is a non-profit organization on a mission to empower, educate, and inspire girls through the sport of lacrosse and that work is made possible, in part, by the generous donations of our supporters at every level. The Game Changer Program will connect girls who want to grow and learn with the people in our community who want to provide opportunities for them to reach their potential. Tenacity CEO founder Theresa Sherry says it best,

I think Tenacity has been a ‘game changer’ in girls’ lives and this donation program will, in turn, enhance the impact The Tenacity Project has, like a player on the field taking over in a tough game. It will allow individual sponsors to have a direct effect on the ‘game.’”

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 and extracurricular programs, we 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.  Overall, we seek to use sports as a vehicle for teaching valuable life lessons to girls of all ages and as a way to help girls cope with all of life’s challenges, but sometimes the girls who most desire that vehicle can’t afford it on their own. Your donation will help us expand our programs to reach a wider audience and build a stronger community.

An Eighth Grader, who received financial aid, said the following about her experience with the Tenacity project,

“I can honestly say trying out, and being a part of the Tenacity Program was one of the best decisions I ever made. Beyond lacrosse, Tenacity has taught me proper sportsmanship, how to network and communicate effectively, and it has brought me closer to people that I consider great friends and mentors.  Over the past two years a lot has happened in my life and Tenacity has really helped me direct all of my pent up emotions to something productive and positive. The people that I have met through this program inspire me not only on the field but off it as well. Their ambition and kindness are the reasons I joined the program, and I strive to follow their example welcoming new players the same way they did.”  


We are proud to say that the Tenacity Project has and will continue to provide financial aid to over 90 girls in 2016. With your help, we can reach dozens more girls from first through twelfth grade. We’re asking everyone—whether you’ve experienced the tremendous impact Tenacity has had on your own daughter, or simply believe in the power of sports to empower young women across the nation—to participate in our Game Changer Program and help us change lives, one girl at a time.
