Mission Statement

Hagerstown Community College recognizes the vital role that athletics plays in both the spirit of community and pride in an academic institution. The college strives for excellence in all aspects of the operation and the athletic department’s philosophy mirrors that expectation.


Athletics is an integral part of the whole-person educational concept at Hagerstown Community College. In practical terms, HCC’s athletic programs seek to provide avenues, which aid in the development of the scholar-athlete intellectually, socially, and physically, in preparation for a productive life after the community college experience. Scholar- athletes are sought after to embrace and model the character values of respect, responsibility, integrity, sportsmanship, and servant leadership. In return, HCC’s scholar-athletes receive the resources and guidance necessary to compete at their highest level while pursuing academic excellence.
