For well over a century, Bryn Mawr has provided girls with exceptional educational opportunities on a beautiful 26-acre campus within the city limits. The quality of student life at Bryn Mawr is remarkable. Inquisitive girls, excellent teaching, strong student-teacher relationships, and a clear mission sustain our vibrant school community where girls always come first.

The school's five female founders believed, as we do now, in the importance of physical activity and competition. In fact, the history of women's sports has deep roots at Bryn Mawr. Two popular women's sports were played competitively for the first time in the United States at our school: basketball in 1901 and lacrosse in 1926.

Bryn Mawr's founders recognized the benefits of athletic competition as long ago as 1885, and we continue to value their thinking today. We believe participation in athletics gives students the opportunity to develop leadership skills, gain self-confidence, be graceful under pressure, exhibit commitment, and lead active, healthy lives.

The strength of the athletics program at Bryn Mawr is a tribute to the caliber of our students and coaches. We recognize the importance of the relationships among teammates and between individual members of the team and the coach. The impact of these relationships is far-reaching and long-lasting. Through their individual and team efforts, Bryn Mawr student-athletes provide our community with strength, focus, and vision. The camaraderie, friendships, loyalties, and successes our student-athletes experience are a vital part of a Bryn Mawr education.

At Bryn Mawr, students, parents, and coaches demonstrate respect for opponents, officials, the rules of competition, and the school as a whole. I encourage all of our students to experience and enjoy the spirit and sportsmanship of athletics, hopefully for many seasons and years to come.
