Theresa Sherry ’04 was honored this week by the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) as the 2023 Double-Goal Coach of the Year, presented by TeamSnap.
She was selected from a group of 25 finalists on the strength of her work empowering young women through the sport of lacrosse.
Sherry created her lacrosse club, The Tenacity Project, a non-profit organization, as a way to give back to the game and the sport that has been so critical in her life. The club is about so much more than lacrosse. They focus on mental health, leadership, and physical health training as part of their curriculum. They are empowering young women through lacrosse to have the best outcomes in life. Through The Tenacity Project scholarship and aid programs, all girls have access to lacrosse, even if their circumstances would not normally allow it.
Sherry was honored this week at the annual Game Changer Awards and Benefit event which was held at the Chase Center in San Francisco. She was celebrated alongside World Series champion manager Dusty Baker who was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the PCA and Steph Curry’s Curry Brand which was honored with the PCA’s Community Impact Award.
