Friends, Hawks, countrymen, lend me your ears.
When our girls leave the classroom for the field they study a different lesson plan. Teamwork, motivation, and resilience are essentials skills to achieving goals and succeeding in life. Hawthorne Athletics provide that very outlet. Through collaboration and competition our students learn what they are made of and more importantly, who they want to be.
Being an athlete is hard. It is also endlessly exhilarating.We want our girls to revel in the excitement of testing themselves physically and reaching goals they may not have thought were unattainable. No matter your level of knowledge or background in a given sport, every girl can become a great Hawthorne athlete. We also support those who pursue their craft outside of school, whether is's sailing or skiing internationally, working with them to balance their school commitments with their competition demands.
