Help Aberdeen Amateur Athletic Club jumpstart our Community Development Programme with the vision of supporting positive change in the community through athletics.
We want to take athletics sessions into the communities of Aberdeen where these opportunities do not currently exist, initially Inchgarth, Torry, and Sheddocksley. The sessions will be fun, develop confidence, improve physical and mental health, and will engage members of the local community. In addition to all the benefits of participation in sport and physical activity, through our partnerships, we hope to also contribute in a small way to tackling other challenges faced in the local communities, e.g. supporting vulnerable families, reducing inequalities, and improving skills and learning for young people.
Please help us to deliver these free sessions and to have a positive influence in the communities of Aberdeen. Donate here.
Share this link with friends, family, and colleagues. Ask your business or employer to match your donation.
£1500 will allow us to get started, providing an initial 10 weeks of weekly 1-hour sessions in each of the three communities. The funding will help cover the costs of coaches, lets, and equipment.
Our intent is to start these sessions in the autumn of 2020. Should COVID-19 or other circumstances prevent this, the funds will be used for the same purpose at a later date.

Aberdeen AAC was successful in our request to the Aberdeenshire Clubsport £100 Discretionary Fund. This will help keep our coaches and athletes safe at Inverurie satellite sessions through the purchase of more disinfectant supplies.
Aberdeen AAC members should have received an email today with an invitation to log in to your LoveAdmin account. LoveAdmin is the club’s new customer management system and database (replacing ClubBuzz). Among other things, LoveAdmin will allow for online payment of subscription fees and save a lot of admin time for club officers and volunteers.
Please follow the instructions in the email at your earliest convenience, ensuring your details are correct, especially emergency contacts and medical information.
The 2020 Aberdeen AAC Annual General Meeting and Prize-Giving will be held via Zoom on Friday 6 November at 7PM. The Zoom invitation will be emailed to all members–please do not share outside of the club.
Merit trophies will be awarded. Historically, club merit awards have been based on summer outdoor track and field performances. In light of the limited summer season we have all experienced, the committee has taken the decision to consider other performances: cross country, road racing and indoor track and field, in deciding on 2020 merit award recipients.
2019 trophies: Watch for details regarding how and when to return trophies received at the 2019 AGM.
