Coaches & Coaching

With our qualified coaches, Teviotdale Harriers is committed to providing a safe environment for children/young people under the age of 18 to participate in athletics. Further Welfare information available here.

In line with UK and Scottish Athletics best practice we take a long view of our members and our coaching structure is designed to support this.

  • We currently run four training groups based roughly on age and abilities with the distinct chance of progression as runners develop.
  • We aim to bring people together from all parts of the Hawick community, to move in the same positive direction.
  • We work to provide a family orientated, happy, healthy, enthusiastic atmosphere to run and socialize whilst supporting the community and local schools.
  • We hope to use our passion for running to build friendships, provide encouragement and improve ourselves with no regard to age, cultural differences, gender, pace or experience.

Teviotdale Harriers as a club will:

  • Encourage and support improvement in the athletic capabilities of our members.
  • Provide coaching in a safe and secure environment.
  • Provide competitive opportunities for all members, on an individual and team basis, in both club events and District/National levels.
  • Regularly communicate to members on current and future activities.

What we ask from members in return:

  • Arrive at training promptly, suitably prepared for physical activity.
  • Always try to the best of their ability.
  • Only attend training when prepared and physically able to train properly.
  • Be courteous and respectful to all coaches, officials and helpers at all times.
  • Be courteous and respectful to club mates and members of other clubs at all times.
  • Encourage and support their club mates.
  • Respect the property and equipment used at training.
  • Be prepared to compete for club teams and in individual competitions.
