Hamlin aspires to be an outstanding educational-athletic organization that provides a high-quality experience to every athlete and coach. A high-quality experience is one in which every player
- Has fun playing the game
- Feels she is an important part of the team regardless of performance
- Learns “life lessons” that have value beyond the playing field
- Develops and learns as an athlete with a deepening understanding of the skills, tactics and strategies of the game
The Hamlin School’s Athletic Philosophy is to provide an inclusive and robust program focusing on integrity, hard work and “Honoring The Game.” Hamlin Athletics is designed to help girls gain confidence as well as developing their self-esteem and leadership skills, while also learning the value of good sportsmanship and the meaning of teamwork.
Our athletes will recognize that mistakes are an inevitable and important part of the learning process and the key to success is being able to rebound from mistakes with renewed determination. We want our athletes to look forward to playing a challenging opponent because they will be pushed to perform at their highest level. Hamlin Lions will win with class, lose with pride and be supported by parents, coaches and peers. Our athletes will know that those watching are proud of them regardless of the outcome because they played with heart, intensity and honored the game.
At Hamlin, there is a place for every type of athlete: beginners who are looking to have fun and explore something new as well as more experienced athletes who want to compete with vigor. While the levels of commitment and competition are greatest at the varsity level, all Hamlin coaches are united in their quest to inspire their players to take ownership of their personal goals and level of improvement while having fun and enjoying the experience of playing on a Hamlin team.
