About Us

What do we do?

Our main objectives include:-

  • To promote interest and participation in Sport and Recreation among Sportsmen, Women and Children within the City of Aberdeen.
  • To assist in co-ordinating the activities of the various Sports and Recreational Organisations within the City of Aberdeen
  • To assist with the formation of Sports Clubs and Recreational Organisations where none exist, or where existing clubs need help.
  • To award grants to Sportsmen, Women and Children within the City of Aberdeen and help them in their pursuit of excellence!

In order to achieve these objectives Aberdeen Sports Council has three main Sub Committees:-

  • Grants/Coaching
  • Publicity/Events
  • Awards

Annual Sports Awards

In the past, in conjunction with the City Council and Chris Anderson Trust, Aberdeen Sports Council has presented Trophies in the Categories listed below, at the Annual Sports Personality Awards Evening, hosted by Aberdeen City Council.

Each year, Member Clubs and Associations had the opportunity to Nominate Members in any, or all of the Categories.

In 2013, the format was changed, with the Event being organised by Sport Aberdeen, and new Trophies being awarded.

However, guided by the feelings of Member Clubs, Aberdeen Sports Council held their own Sports Awards Presentation, which was very well received by all who attended.
