On behalf of the Committee of Hawkesbury City Athletics Centre, I would like to welcome you to our 51st Season - 2023/2024.
It will be another exciting season of athletics for all our registered athletes. We look forward to seeing many familiar faces and would like to extend a special warm welcome to all the new families joining us for the season ahead.
It is a pleasure to be involved in HCAC, where friendships are formed and the ‘family, fun and fitness’ message is represented through everything that we do at Hawkesbury City. We are proud to provide a quality program of athletics events for all ages and capabilities with a dedicated focus on fun, fitness, and fundamental skill development of athletics in a safe, family-friendly and inclusive environment.
Our programs provide an array of athletic events including sprinting, middle- and long-distance running, hurdling, race walking, jumping (long, triple and high), throwing (discus, shot put and javelin) and cross country running. We also offer a wide range of training opportunities from beginners to the more experienced athletes.
While athletics is by its very nature competitive, our goal for all our athletes is to achieve PBs (Personal Bests) by improving their own times, distances and heights, but above all, to make long lasting friendships and to have fun.
Our Tuesday night competitions are the backbone of our club and those anywhere near our grounds on a Tuesday night will hear the laughter and loud cheers of our parents, grandparents and athletes as they encourage and spur each other on to achieve their own personal bests.
Our athletes are extremely fortunate to have very supportive and involved parents and families, which we believe is key at our club. Our track and field areas have been specifically designed to support the involvement and participation of parents within athletics. We encourage you to be with your children and assist in the running of our club and events. Whether it be helping with the set up or pack up, helping on the track or at the field events, helping in the canteen, assisting the age managers or helping with crowd control it is all important. The support of everyone at our club ensures we function successfully and fosters our positive club spirit.
At Hawkesbury City, we will continue to grow from strength to strength and I look forward to getting our season underway. I wish for you a season full of fun, friendship, improvement and achievement. Set goals and work towards achieving them but always do it with a smile and in the true spirit of Little Athletics.
