UPDATED 29 MAY
Aberdeen Amateur Athletic Club leaders wish the best to all our members, supporters, and partners in these unprecedented times and hope everyone is keeping safe.
AAAC activities are suspended and competitions are cancelled through at least the end of July. AAAC leaders will continue to follow the restrictions and guidelines of the UK and Scottish governments, as well as Scottish Athletics. Scottish Athletics has updated their exit plan framework regarding their phased plan to return to group athletics here. Aberdeen Sports Village management is also working on their recovery strategy. Further details on each of these plans and how they might relate to AAAC activities will be shared as soon as they are available.
Everyone is encouraged to continue to train as they are able, also while following governmental instruction. Please watch for communication from AAAC coaches and content on club social media for training guidance.
The AAAC board has continued meeting monthly (remotely) and administrative work continues. Some updates:
- AAAC is now a registered charity;
- preparations continue for expansion of club activities into the community, including children’s sessions and possibly jogging groups, as well as expansion of disability athletics sessions;
- club leaders are making initial preparations for a new customer management software–LoveAdmin–which is expected to improve administrative efficiency and allow for online payments among other things;
- and various other work continues in preparation for the resumption of club activities, whenever that might be.
Should you have any questions or comments for AAAC leaders, please email Brian at ClubManager@AberdeenAAC.co.uk.
