TUITION: Each player will pay $2,250 for our yearlong commitment. Due to our partnership with Lacrosse Unlimited, we will provide the following:

WHY: The Tenacious Turtles Program was founded on the value of balance. Balance in every aspect of life including athletics. We believe the club lacrosse circuit has become overwhelming and time consuming. Clubs are constantly asking their players to quit other sports to dedicate their time and money to their program.
This is NOT the case with the Tenacious Turtles. As a valued member of our family, we encourage multi-sport athletes to develop in other areas of athletics. With our directors being multi-sport athletes, we believe the benefits of being well rounded outweigh a year-round commitment. This balance has allowed our children to dedicate, develop, and enjoy their time with the Tenacious Turtles when we are in season.
The Tenacious Turtles has proven their success and commitment to the players and families by offering opportunities to compete in college.
