Volunteers are essential to AAAC’s existence.  Without volunteers, AAAC could not deliver training sessions or present competitions nor have any semblance of organisation.  Thus, all new members and their families are invited to volunteer their time, sharing their expertise in support of the club.  The club will help support those who wish to become coaches and/or officials, but there are numerous other ways to help as well.  Consider how you might contribute to the club and complete and submit the volunteer form found here.

The role of Officials Coordinator is currently vacant.  The person in this role leads in organising and recruiting volunteers and qualified officials for AAAC competitions.  They receive significant support from the club manager and a subcommittee, with whom much of the work is shared.  There are no specific requirements for this role, other than the desire to support the club by facilitating this essential human resource.

Additionally, the board may co-opt additional ordinary trustees throughout the year.  If you would like to have a leadership role with the club and help guide its direction, please contact Brian at

The club has a constant need for volunteer officials.  No previous experience or knowledge is necessary.  Various roles are available and the club will provide training, both on-the-job and formal courses.  You may find more details here and here.  Contact Brian at for more details or to volunteer.

All positions are voluntary.

You would be coaching at Aberdeen Sports Village, outdoor and indoor track.
