“Here, we do not compete with the sole intention of gaining the best stats on the team or getting ourselves a blurb in the newspaper. While we appreciate these acknowledgements, we acknowledge the humbler aspects of sport. We value the inter-grade camaraderie that stems from the glory of victories and from the determination to persist after a disappointing defeat. We cherish the unique communication that teammates share, so distinct from the chatter heard in the hallways. And we prize the feeling that together we are becoming stronger, both physically and mentally. On that field, court, and racecourse, we together grow as young women”.

The goal of the athletic program at Lincoln School is to develop students' physical skills, enhance self-esteem, encourage team and individual accomplishments, and instill sportsmanship and the spirit of fair play. The school feels strongly that healthy competition and cooperation in sports not only benefits a girls' physical development, but influences her academic life by teaching her to set realistic goals, exercise discipline, and develop time management skills.
