Hathaway Brown School is committed to excellence in girls' athletics as part of a larger commitment to excellence in girls' education. Through experiences in our athletic program, girls challenge themselves to attain relevant goals, and to take their talents to the highest level of personal performance possible.
As student-athletes, HB girls are dedicated and motivated role models who recognize the privilege of being a part of the Blazer Athletics tradition. Coaches are devoted to shaping good character and personal growth in their student athletes, not just athletic prowess, and to doing their best to provide a quality team experience for everyone. Sportsmanship, teamwork and ethical behavior are the overarching values of the program, and at all times, athletes are expected to represent their School with integrity.
The mission of the Hathaway Brown Athletics Program ultimately is a reflection of the School motto, "We learn not for school, but for life." We strive to be the best that we can be both in the context of and beyond sports. We accomplish this by conscientiously preparing to compete, staying in the moment during athletic competition, and dealing honestly with our results.
As an extensive program that touches multiple aspects of the HB community, the athletics program strives to create an intense pride and loyalty among its participants to serve the program, fostering a shared allegiance among HB community members. Win or lose, the School supports and appreciates the contributions our student-athletes and coaches make to the life of the School.
