AAAC 2020 AGM

The Aberdeen AAC 2020 AGM will be held via Zoom on Friday 6 November at 7PM. Further details will be shared at the appropriate time.

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.

Watch for details regarding how and when to return trophies received at the 2019 AGM.

We’re Back!

We're back FB

Thanks to all our members, parents, and volunteers for your patience and your support over recent weeks as we have gradually returned to club sessions at Aberdeen Sports Village. We still have work to do and procedures to test as we continue to follow the current guidance and await the progression through the phases of lockdown measure relaxation. So, we must ask for you continued patience and trust. Please know that club leaders will continue to advocate for our members and the safe and swift return to whatever new normal awaits us.

Updated Guidance

From Scottish Athletics, 21 August.

scottishathletics welcome the Scottish Government announcement yesterday of the latest planned moves for the route map through, and out of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and the ongoing commitment to resume sport at all levels.

The changes announced on Thursday 20 August will come into effect through a phased approach on Monday 24 August and Monday 31 August.

This is therefore an important review point for the sporting sector, including ourselves. Further changes beyond the next review date on 10th September are indicative only and may be subject to change.”

Aberdeen Amateur Athletic Club would not exist and could not function without the time and effort of its dozens of volunteers: coaches, officials, committee members, fundraisers, managers and coordinators…

“Volunteers aren’t paid. Not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.”
