About the club
Aberdeen Amateur Athletic Club is based at the Aberdeen Sports Village on Linksfield Road, Aberdeen, very close to the University of Aberdeen. The Sports Village is based around the Chris Anderson Athletics Stadium, which was significantly enhanced in 2010 with the opening a range of new indoor sports facilities, including a state of the art indoor athletics centre. This incorporates a 6 lane, 120 metre sprint track, as well as indoor throwing and jumping areas, which vastly increase the range of training and competition opportunities that the Club can offer.
The Club caters for all levels of interest, from serious athletes to recreational runners looking to keep fit. With approximately 400 members, the Club has a range of training groups and coaches catering for athletes aged 9 and over through to seniors and veterans.
We promote all aspects of athletics from road running, cross country, hill running to track & field and the Club has teams which compete in outdoor and indoor track & field and cross country leagues each year.
More information about the Club is available under the relevant sections of the Website.
Club members can access more detailed Club information, via the Members section of the Website.
Club Training Nights
Club Training nights
Location: Chris Anderson Stadium inside the Aberdeen Sports Village
When: Monday and Wednesday nights from 4pm - 8pm.
These sessions are exclusively for club members. The training is organised by Aberdeen AAC during this time but club members must either take out an athletics membership of Aberdeen Sports Village (cheaper if you are a regular user) or pay at the Sports Village reception each time they visit in order to use the facility.
For senior athletes, additional training sessions are available on other weekday evenings and we are moving towards having athletics as the main user of the facilities from 4pm - 8pm every evening. Coaches will often arrange other sessions at quieter periods of the week, to allow more specialised training (eg. throws and hurdles) to take place in a less busy environment than is normally found on our main training nights.
In addition to these Club Nights, the Club also works closely with Aberdeen Sports Village to provide a range of opportunities for beginners to get involved in athletics.
The outdoor track and the indoor athletics area are available (subject to availability) for athletes' training for both club members and non club members outwith the standard club nights. Timetables for both areas can be found on the Aberdeen Sports Village Timetable.
On occasion, the track times above may be unavailable due to severe weather conditions. Athletes from outside the area who are planning to do a session, might find it advisable to phone the ASV office to check that the stadium is open before travelling.
