Hewitt’s 2023 winter athletics season was an exciting and eventful season for the Hawks! Congratulations to these talented young athletes.
Our Athletics Philosophy
At Hewitt, we believe that health and wellness form the backbone of girls’ ability to achieve their personal best within and beyond the classroom. Our athletics program prepares girls to thrive in structured and competitive physical activity—and to carry the skills they learn beyond the field or the gym, to serve them in every aspect of their lives. Our athletics program plays a critical role in advancing the values of teamwork, sportswomanship, and leadership, and promotes a lifelong commitment to healthy, balanced living.
Our Coaching Philosophy
To deliver an athletics program specifically attuned to the development of girls and young women, Hewitt's coaching education features instruction in sports pedagogy, differentiated instruction, and the delivery of feedback. Our coaches’ dedication to lifelong learning mirrors our faculty’s extensive focus on feedback and our school’s commitment to teaching students to give and receive feedback well. Hewitt coaches implement developmentally appropriate training programs across grades five through twelve.
One of Hewitt’s newest middle school electives, Sports Leadership, is inspired by our mission to help girls and young women become game changers and ethical leaders. This class gives middle school students increased opportunities to explore, define, and practice their own leadership skills.

After developing their knowledge of health, fitness, nutrition, and sports, middle school students collaborated on self-directed, student-led projects to share sport-specific training exercises as well as the physical and psychological benefits of an active lifestyle.
In December 2020, the Hewitt community came together for a socially-distanced signing day celebration in honor of Anne M., Class of 2021. A Hewitt athlete who played basketball and soccer and rowed crew, Anne will continue her sports career next year as a Division I rowing recruit for UCLA. We spoke with Anne about her journey as an athlete, the importance of teamwork, and how her time as a Hewitt Hawk has prepared her for the future.
