Welcome to the home page of Halas Hawks Junior Football Club.
Halas Hawks Junior Football Club was established in 1980, when boys from various scout groups in the Halesowen area got together specifically to promote and develop youth football in the locality.
Halas Hawks is now in its 41st season and is regarded as one of the largest youth development clubs in the area. We now run 55 teams, playing at a competitive level, ranging from under 7’s (mini soccer) through to open age, including 16 girls only football teams, one open age ladies team and a veterans team. The teams play in various leagues according to the managers preference and are represented in the Stourbridge League , CWGFL, MJPL, Birmingham County Women’s Leagues and Worcester County Veterans League.
In 2005, the club achieved Charter Standard status and in 2011, this was upgraded to Charter Standard Community Club status, the highest clubmark level awarded by The FA.
At the end of each season all registered players attend a presentation evening, where they receive a season review handbook and a trophy, supplied and paid for by the club.
The club is run by a Senior Club Committee (SCC), which comprises of a Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Club Secretary, Club Treasurer, Girls & Women’s Development Officer and three Club Welfare Officers. All individual team managers form the main club committee. A committee meeting is held on a monthly basis to discuss the overall running of the club, any issues arising, and to assist team managers with their responsibility for the day to day activities associated with running a team.
In 2017, the club formed an official link with Halesowen Town FC, with the aim being to further develop players of a high ability and provide a pathway into adult football. As part of this partnership, we share a new development at Halesowen College, as our official training facility. We also use Homer Hill as the matchday venue for our younger teams.
In line with the F.A. Charter Standard requirements, all managers/coaches are DBS checked and hold a minimum Level 1 coaching qualification. This also means that the Club must demonstrate and document such things as a child protection policy, code of conduct, disciplinary procedures, accounts, a management committee plus many other requirements.
