AAAC is very pleased to announce that the club was just awarded £3558 by Corra Foundation!
This grant will be used to support AAAC’s Energizer Programme, by funding athletics sessions in/around Torry, scheduled to start in autumn 2021.
If you have an interest: 👉🏻 a child who might like to participate in our run, jump, and throw sessions 👉🏻 a volunteer 👉🏻 a potential coach who AAAC can train 📧 Please email Ruth at Pathways@AberdeenAAC.co.uk
The need for local officials has never been greater. To help club volunteers get more experience or qualified, Scottish Athletics are running online virtual courses in May:
👉🏻 Wednesday 19 May, Level 1 Track Course 👉🏻 Monday 31 May, Level 1 Field Course Part 1 👉🏻 Monday 7 June, Level 1 Field Course Part 2
⭐️ All courses will be delivered via Zoom, running 6:30-9PM. Booking details are here. Space is limited, so sign up early.
💷 AAAC will reimburse our volunteers for these courses.
🤔 If AAAC volunteers want to attend a course, but cannot manage these dates, please email Brian at ClubManager@AberdeenAAC.co.uk. There may be an opportunity for AAAC to host our own course if we have enough interest.
👍🏻 Any new volunteer officiating at a Together Apart competition or a local club competition before they undertake an official’s course, can count those experiences towards their officials’ level 1 licence.
AAAC members who are interested in participating in the summer league matches should complete this availability form which will help team managers select the teams. Completing this form does not guarantee your selection.
Aberdeen Sports Village are introducing the ASV Passport.
This will not affect AAAC significantly. To clarify: 👉🏻 ASV members do NOT need one 👉🏻 Anyone paying for a day pass will NOT need one 👉🏻 AAAC coaches with a coach pass do NOT need one 👉🏻 Spectators, when allowed, will NOT need one 👉🏻 They are only £5 for at least a year and it is expected that most users should recoup that money through vouchers/discounts via the associated app.
Aberdeen Sports Village will be opening further from Monday the 26th.
Online booking is now open and athletics sessions may be booked up to 8 days in advance. Time slots are available from 6:30AM weekdays (you may book and attend any time to 4:30PM); 5PM and 6:30PM on weekday evenings as well as weekends.
