March Madness: Staff Profiles


On a recent staff call, awesome women in California, Texas and Oregon spent over an hour sharing ideas about the game of lacrosse.  They talked about changes at the college level and how those changes could be incorporated into our Tenacity practices.  Not the rules, but the trends.  How has the fast break changed?  Why does transition play look so different?  Will those changes naturally trickle down to the high school game?  They talked about how to challenge the sharpest player on the field without leaving the newer players behind, and then they got into the gritty details, sharing cradling routines and discussing the efficiency of conditioning at practice.

If the girls are the heart of Tenacity, our staff members are the bones.  They are essential to keeping the programs running smoothly, but more than that, they create and uphold the values on which everything else hangs.  They develop our curriculum, balance our budgets, work tirelessly to represent our girls during the recruiting process, spread the word about the Tenacity Project in new cities, and they define our culture—a culture that sets us apart.

Over the month of March, we’ll be featuring four stellar staff members on our Tenacity blog.  These are women with a contagious passion for lacrosse and awesome advice for players and coaches alike!  Check back here to get the inside scoop!
