BearLax

Mission

Sherry Sports, LLC owns and operates the BearLax Club and Tenacity10. BearLax is primarily a club team program for elite players to compete with and against other top players from all over the country. Tenacity10 encompasses everything else in the business, including: camps; clinics; consulting; and tournaments. We have started travel teams in Texas called Tenacity Texas, so we have started to expand the use of the Tenacity10 name to teams as well. The idea is that both BearLax and non-BearLax members can participate in our camps and other programs, but the travel teams are are for a select group of people who are chosen through a tryout process.

The mission for our teams-the BearLax teams and Tenacity Texas teams- is to do the following:

  • Provide opportunities for top players to train and compete together in the off season
  • Help develop top players into college prospects through access to premier coaching
  • Provide access to guidance throughout the college recruiting process for the Division I, II, III, and WDIA levels
  • Foster an environment in which girls learn life lessons as well as lacrosse skills

We bring the Tenacity10 Principles to the players on our travel teams so that they are constantly reminded to go beyond “dreaming” or just setting goals. 

1.      SET GOALS

2.      MAKE A GAMEPLAN

3.      ASK QUESTIONS

4.      WATCH THE BEST

5.      MASTER THE FUNDAMENTALS

6.      INNOVATE

7.      WORK SMART

8.      WORK HARD

9.      FOCUS IN

10.   FOLLOW THROUGH

Program Information
For the 2014 BearLax Membership Season, there are two teams for each of the following high school graduation years: 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018s, 2019s, and 2020s.  There is also a high school mixed team called BearLax West Coast.


BearLax practices and competes outside of the spring season so as to complement the high school and youth team seasons that the girls play on in their local areas. BearLax teams are required to compete in certain tournaments throughout the year so that we can develop chemistry both on and off the field. The consistent rosters, and high level of commitment on our players’ and families’ parts have made BearLax a contender in some of the highest divisions at national recruiting tournaments. Competing all over the country gives our girls exposure to college coaches and we are proud to have BearLax players currently playing for, or heading to, schools such as the following: Boston College, Brown University, Cal Berkeley, University of Colorado Boulder, Connecticut College, Cornell, Fresno State, Hofstra, Marquette, Northwestern, Oregon, Ohio State, San Diego State, Skidmore, Stanford, St. Marys’ (CA), UC Davis, University of Virginia, and USC.Each team is coached by a current or former college player or coach. Our staff includes people who have competed at the highest levels possible in Women’s Lacrosse, including former USA team members, NCAA All Americans, and All Conference selections.
