Aberdeen AAC follows the most current guidance regarding COVID-19 provided by Scottish Athletics which may be found here, as well as the facility-specific advice from our main training venue, Aberdeen Sports Village, which may be found here.
Aberdeen AAC trains and coaches athletes aged nine years and older.
AAAC Track Etiquette Policy: to be read and understood by all track users.
Generally, children aged nine to fifteen will be directed to beginner sessions delivered in partnership with Aberdeen Sports Village, or other satellite groups around Aberdeen. Further details may be found here. These sessions are staffed by Aberdeen Amateur Athletic Club coaches and are a pathway into the club.
The club generally delivers semi-annual information meetings to new/potential club athletes and their parents which coincide with induction windows into the club (and opportunities for current club members to change groups).
Older Teens, Seniors, and Masters
Generally, athletes aged sixteen years and older will be placed into training groups by the club’s Coaching Coordinator on a case-by-case basis. Adult endurance runners, may be interested in joining AAAC’s endurance training group.
You may read about our coaches here. All AAAC coaches have a current UK Athletics Coach Licence and have gone through the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG)/Disclosure Scotland process to ensure that they are approved to work with children.
