Mission Statement & IAAM

The Bryn Mawr School was founded in 1885 in order to provide girls with the same educational opportunities that boys enjoyed, which included an emphasis on physical activity. Now, more than ever, we know that participation in sports helps develop strong, self-confident, well-balanced young women. We continue to celebrate the challenges of competition and appreciate the lessons for life that sports provide.

Mission Statement

In the humanistic tradition, The Bryn Mawr School promotes the development of mind, body, and spirit. Driven by the intention to cultivate the whole person, Bryn Mawr supports and promotes each individual. Bryn Mawr is committed to supporting a highly competitive athletic program that strives for excellence in all teams. Our goal is that each girl will compete at her own ability level in a variety of athletic activities.

Bryn Mawr believes that participation in athletics provides an opportunity for girls to develop strong leadership skills, an increased sense of self, a healthy competitive spirit, and a lifelong commitment to fitness. In addition, the athletic experience fosters a sense of camaraderie, teamwork, and school spirit.

IAAM Motto and Philosophy

Let the coaches coach.
Let the officials officiate.
Let the fans cheer encouragement."

IAAM Mission Statement

The diverse member schools of the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland share a common commitment to athletics as an extension of the educational process. Participation in healthy athletic competition provides our female students opportunities to build character, acquire and improve skills, demonstrate leadership, and have fun.
