Watsons Athletic Club encourages members to actively participate in community volunteer work to help the development of the community through athletics, as well as promoting athletics to the society. Over the years, we have participated in various community volunteer activities, including The Hong Kong Red Cross Kennedy Center Sports Day, The Hong Kong Society for Rehabilitation Walk Programme, Kwong Wah Hospital “StepUp” Programme, etc.
Form One Admission Programme
Since 2002, WAC has organised the “Secondary School Selection Talk” every October. The talk aims to provide an effective communication platform between athletes, parents and schools and help student athletes to find an ideal environment for both athletics and academic development, To date, 12 secondary schools with an intention of developing athletics in school are joining the programme. WAC hopes that the programme will bring a “win-win” situation between the school and student athletes.
The objective of the talk is to allow student athletes to continue to develop their athletic ability and achieve a balanced between school and sports.
Hold secondary school selection talk to allow student athletes and their parents understand the programme.
Arrange school visits for student athletes and parents so that they can have a better understanding on the school’s culture and admission criteria.
Invite student athletes and parents to WAC offices for a face to face meeting. WAC can offer a recommendation letter based on his/her overall performance during the programme.
School Athletics Promotion
WAC promotes athletics to youths through our strong network with local schools.
Since 1998, WAC has developed a “School Athletics Promotion Programme”, which helps schools invite elite athletes and coaches to participate in different school events. Under this Programme, WAC has helped schools locate and invite suitable athletes to be their schools’ exercise ambassador, guest of honour during prize presentation ceremonies as well as give talks to promote sports within the school.
Watsons Nutritionist and Pharmacist professional teams WAC has also been invited to participate in this Programme, allowing more well-rounded and informative content to be disseminated to the schools.
