Current Covid-19 Guidance–through January 2021

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.

Level 3 Covid Guidance–UPDATED

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.
