Greetings from the President

Dear Skyhawk Supporters,
On behalf of Hammond Athletics and all members of the Skyhawk Club Board, I would like to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year and thank you for your support of Skyhawk athletics.  The mission of the Skyhawk Club is to provide financial and volunteer support and assistance to all Hammond athletic teams, coaches and support staff.  The Skyhawk Club funds facility improvements, equipment and uniform purchases and helps cover other costs required by Hammond athletic teams.
Since 1967 Hammond has won over 150 State Championships, produced dozens of collegiate student-athletes, and is widely regarded as the most successful SCISA program in the state.  As successful as Hammond teams are on the field, the Athletic Department’s stated goal to develop the intellectual, physical, social and moral strength of each student-athlete provides a lasting and enduring benefit that each student-athlete will carry with them in the classroom and life.  
Starting in pre-kindergarten, Hammond ensures that all of its students are involved in and benefit from the community fostered and supported by the Hammond Athletic Department.  As proud parents of one Hammond Alumni and a current Junior, both of whom started Hammond in pre-kindergarten and participated in multiple sports dating back to 6th grade, my wife and I witnessed the immeasurable benefits our children experienced from Hammond’s dedication to its athletic programs.   From their excitement to participating in pep rallies and attending games as Junior Skyhawks to raising State Championship trophies as varsity athletes, both of our boys owe much of their personal growth and success to their participation in Hammond Athletics. 
The funds raised by the Skyhawk Club directly support these efforts and without your past, current and future support, Hammond’s athletic excellence and its impact on all student-athletes would not be possible.  Thank you again for your support and Go Skyhawks!
