Current complete guidance from scottishathletics may be found here.
The key points for all clubs and coaches to note are as follows:
No group sport, exercise or training activity by those aged 12 years or over.
Children aged 11 and under can meet outdoors for sport, exercise and recreation, however, scottishathletics strongly recommend that no group activity takes place at this time.
Informal exercise is permitted with your own household or with one other person from another household.
A maximum of 2 people from up to 2 separate households (12 years or over) can meet outdoors for sport. Physical distancing must be maintained, before, during and after the activity.
Those living in a Level 4 local authority area can travel within that area to undertake outdoor sport that starts and finishes at the same place (or up to 5 miles from the boundary of their local authority area for informal exercise), as long as they abide by the rules on meeting other households.
All MAINLAND athletics competition/events (outwith virtual events) will be CANCELLED for the month of January.
From 18:00 on Friday 18 December, Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire will be under the level three system of Covid restrictions for Scotland. From an AAAC perspective this means:
No change for under 18s;
No change for coaches;
No change for outdoor activity;
The main change is to indoor activity for participants aged 18 or over: group activity is prohibited–coaching must be 1:1 or they may train individually.
Also, Aberdeenshire athletes aged 18 and over should not travel into Aberdeen for “organised athletics activity” e.g. coaching sessions. However, they may still travel up to 5 miles outside of Aberdeenshire for informal exercise, e.g. non-coached athletics.
The club continues to follow the guidance of Scottish Athletics, a summary of which may be found here.
Please watch for further club-wide updates, communication from coaches, and detail from Aberdeen Sports Village.
