About The HAWCS
Hertfordshire’s exciting new Athletics Club
Formed in July 2013, and formally recognised by England Athletics in October 2013, the Club was established against the background of the Athletic Academy run for local secondary school children by Hertford and Ware Athletics Coaching (HaWaC).
For a number of years HaWaC has worked with schools throughout East Hertfordshire and beyond, providing a range of services to schools, teachers and pupils.
As the demand for athletics coaching grew throughout 2012 and 2013, HaWaC first established an Academy, and then because of a demand for competitions by its athletes, it was necessary to move towards the formation of a new athletic club, and The HAWCS was born.
Forming the Club did not mean that it would change any of the principles established by HaWaC in terms of the coaching it provided, and neither did it mean closing its doors to “non-members”, indeed the foundation of The HAWCS was to enhance those principles by:
- maintaining the coaching services provided by HaWaC to any athletes who sought its services.
- maintaining and developing the links with all the local schools, teachers and their pupils.
- offering a multi-event approach to the coaching of new young athletes and develop their all-round athletic skills.
