Cork Athletics Registration Figures - July 31st 2019

Cork Athletics Registration Figures - July 31st 2019

 

cork athletics registration figures june 30th 2019

July end-of-month registrations for Cork Athletics stand at 7,349. All of Cork Athletics 56 registered clubs now have members registered.

The July figures are a mere 6 registrations up on the July 2018 corresponding figure of 7,343, but are slightly behind the July 2017 figure of 7,424. The corresponding 2016 figure was 6,851, while the July 2015 figure was 6,160. August end-of-month figures are unlikely to change much, however September registrations should see the usual annual surge ahead of the Cross-Country season.



Just two clubs clubs now have less than the required minimum of ten (10) registered members to constitute a valid registered club. While this may not appear to be a major issue for them - Club Members may still compete in championships - it does constitute some difficulties, e.g. they may not vote on a County Board matter and, perhaps of more significance to some clubs, they may not apply for Race permits as a registered club (at least until they have at least 10 registered members)

 

As always, clubs are reminded that new members may 'try out' the club for a few weeks, after which they MUST be registered, or they will NOT be covered by Athletics Ireland insurance

 

Feb 1: Any athlete, coach, official, or any member acting in any capacity, who remains unregistered is NOT covered by Athletics Irelands insurance, for ANY purpose whatsoever, including training and/or competition.

The Registration facility is open

Senior Registrations

Senior athletes are, or should include, the 'Elite' members - this is the age group from which our Provincial, National and International athletes will emerge.  The numbers in this age group, from those born before 2000, and aged under 35, continues to be disappointing low, particularly in the early 20's ages.  While athletics is not the only sport experiencing this issue, clearly Cork Athletics and Athletics Ireland urgently needs to formulate a strategy to attract and retain athletes in this age range

Transfer Image

 

Cork Athletics Facebook page

Athletes wishing to transfer clubs are reminded that the deadline for the return of fully completed transfer forms is Saturday August 24th.  Forms received after that date will NOT be accepted.

 

Transfer forms may be downloaded from the Athletics Ireland website.  

 

The Procedure on the form MUST be followed.

Completed forms should be give/posted to Cork AAI County Board Registrar, John Copithorne, Belgooley, Co. Cork.

  • Do NOT call to John Copithorne's house or workplace
  • Do NOT send your form by Registered Post, Courier or other form of delivery, except the regular Post
  • Do NOT send your completed form to Athletics Ireland HQ (Dublin), as this will severely affect delivery time, likely missing the deadline.

Closing date is Sunday March 24th, however, as there is no postal delivery on Saturday 24th August, the effective closing date is Friday August 23rd

 
Completed Transfer Forms may be submitted at any stage, but will not be reviewed by Cork Athletics County Board until after March 24th. However early submission allows time for the return and resubmission of forms that are incomplete or contain an error of some form or other

 

The Transfer Form MUST be signed in the following order

By the:

•   Member (in the case of a minor by the parent or guardian)

•   New Club

•   Outgoing Club

•   County Board (outgoing club)

•   County Boards (for out of county club transfer only)

•   County Boards (for inter-county transfer only)

Incomplete, improperly or incorrectly completed forms will be rejected.

 

Notes:

  • Athletes must be in good stead with the outgoing club, i.e. they must not owe any membership  fee, or other arrears, and all club property in their possession must have been returned
  • Athletes whose membership of the outgoing club has lapsed by more than three years do NOT require a transfer, i.e. they are free to change clubs without going through the formal transfer process - they can be simply registered by the incoming club.  Note: Effectively this means that anyone transferring, who has been registered in ANY of the years 2016, 2017, 2018 or 2019, will need to fill out a Transfer Form

 


Next Transfer Window, following March 24th 2019, will close on August 24th 2019

Sean Maher (Hammer)

Hammer Thrower Sean Maher had to settle for 13th in his event, throwing 56.48m, outside his personal best. “I’m severely disappointed. I knew I could perform a lot better than 56m – that’s 12m off what I know what I can throw. But when you’re here you need to compete with the big boys – you need to get a throw in in the first three, or you’re not going anywhere.

“I take so much with me, simple things that you can take to the next step, and it really helps you bring up your game. I definitely want to come back – the World Under-20s are in Kenya next year, that’s where I know I’m going to show out.”

 

Diarmuid O'Connor - Bandon AC

Report from Frank Stam, Bandon AC - Diarmuid's Coach


There was some confusion after Diarmuid's decathlon - Even the camera man got it wrong. Diarmuid won the final event, the 1500m, and cameraman kept chasing him, while Diarmuid went about congratulating the medal winners who already had flags around their necks.

 

diarmuid o connor bandon ac eyof decathlon baku 2019

Diarmuid was a bit unsettled for both the 100m and Long Jump, but scored a little above PB level. Then his mood fell with Shot Put that was almost 2m down on his PB. However there was a long break after the Shot, and he came back strongly with a new spirit, and jumped five consecutive High Jump PB's.

In the 400m, he probably went out bit too fast, in Lane 7, however his time was very close to a PB. His score after Day 1 was 3569 points. Day 1 ended with 6th place, from 16 participants, which was a happy surprise. The challenge was to not drift out of top 10 the next day.

 Day 2 started with a bang, when he won the 110 hurdles, in 14.27 sec - His PB had been 14.45 sec.

diarmuid o connor bandon ac eyof decathlon 110mh baku 2019

 

This was worth 940 points, and this became the highest score for this decathlon for all athletes. He was on a roll and continued, adding almost 2m to his Discus PB. He then added almost 5m to his Javelin PB. This was followed up when he equalled his Pole Vault PB.

He won the 1500m in a time just 2 seconds over his PB, but still fast enough to break the National Outdoor Youth Decathlon record with a total of 6792 points, 40 points more than Daniel Ryan scored in EYOF Tbilisi, in 2016.


Overall Diarmuid had 6 PB's in all, and retained his 6th place from day 1. Compared to the athletes who finished above him, who have more balanced scores, for the future, Diarmuid still has two events that he can work, on to catch up with them.

Munster Performance Squad min

 

The first Munster Performance Squad and Development Squad training day of the 2019/2020 series will take place at Banna Strand, from September 13th to 15th

 

Munster Endurance Performance Squad

Athletes have been selected for this year’s Regional Endurance Performance Squads based on their results over the past 12 months. Congratulations to those athletes selected. The squads will aim to bring top young athletes from across each province together for opportunities to train collectively. Whilst this undoubtedly has some performance benefits, perhaps more importantly it gives athletes a chance to get to know each other and can only help build a strong vibrant endurance community that athletes will want to be part of for years to come. The first squad activity takes place in September, with a weekend camp.  Athletes who wish to be involved MUST register by August 13th

    Camps will include a mix of practical training sessions, theory and input from older international athletes, and will be led by coaches who have at least Level 2 coaching standard. Camps will run from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. Athletes attending the camps should be healthy and ready to train, and will be expected to adhere to the code of conduct, similar to those in place for Irish athletes at International Championships. The training will be appropriate for the time of year. For enquires please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Athletes included in the squad list should register using this link. Unlike previous years, there is no need to pre-register for the squad. Athletes that have been selected and wish to attend the camp should just follow this link to register directly.

Note. The cost of the camps will be subsidised significantly, but the price of each camps is dependent upon the costs incurred at each venue. Only athletes that are on the lists should register, as other athletes will not be invited to the camps, and their fees will not be reimbursed.

New High-Performance Indoor Facility Proposed for CIT

New Indoor High-Performance Athletics Facility at CIT


proposed cit indoor athletics july 2019

 

Last Monday, July 22nd, at a function to launch the 68th Cork City Sports, details of a joint CIT - Athletics Ireland venture to develop a new Indoor High-Performance Centre were unveiled.

Plans are at an advance stage to develop a €12.3m High-Performance indoor athletics facility, at Cork Institute of Technology (CIT). The facility will include a sprints track, along with Pole Vault and Jump areas.

An application has been made for Funding is being sought under the Department of Transport, Sport and Tourism’s Large Scale Infrastructure Fund (LLSIF). The complete development includes a two-storey multi-purpose sports arena, located south of the existing outdoor Athletics Track and will comprise eight courts, fitness studios, a health and fitness facility, along with dressing rooms.

The Athletics Ireland extension will add an indoor running track, pole vault and jump facilities to the new complex.

Hamish Adams, CEO, Athletics Ireland

 

Hamish Adams, CEO of Athletics Ireland said that the facility would be a “massive boost” for athletics, and sport in general, in Cork.

“We’ve got an application in for €12.3m funding for a project we want to develop in conjunction with CIT”

“CIT is proceeding with a new gym, in the next few months, and we want to extend that to include a new sports hall, pole vault area, long jump and high jump areas, and a running track. It’s a huge development and it would be a massive boost for sport in Cork, not only athletics but all sport within the college and the local community”


Webmaster's Comment
Several months ago, when I first heard of the proposed Indoor Track, I was "drooling". Indoor athletics competition would finally be a reality in Cork. Such hopes were swiftly dashed when a well-placed source said "No. It won't be an indoor track" (Like Athlone or Abbotstown). "It'll be a straight track"  A full size 200m indoor track "would be a 'white elephant', and can't be justified."  I suggested that, at least, we could "hold 100m events". The response was equally deflating " It won't be 100m...It may be 80m"

So there you have it. It is NOT an indoor arena for indoor competition.

Nevertheless, this is a very welcome development and should prove very attractive to Vaulters and jumpers, in particular. Currently, many Cork athletes competing in Jumps must travel to Nenagh for event-specific training, so this facility should make life easier for them. Additionally, it should make the Jumps & Vault events more attractive to up-and-coming athletes

Viewed solely on economic grounds, an indoor track would certainly be extremely hard to justify. However a full-size indoor track would, one would hope, be a huge attraction in Cork, and dove-tail in with both existing and proposed facilities in the County. An indoor T&F meet would add to the existing annual Cork City International Sports, perhaps, whether associated or not, both an indoor and an outdoor International meet, in Cork, would create synergy - be greater than the sum of the two individual T&F Meets

Developing a full-size Indoor Track, in Cork, will require an awful lot of dedication, commitment and hard work, from, at least, a core of such individuals, and will not be easy. Along with these traits, a vision of how to make it happen will be a key factor. As the source quoted above suggested, an Indoor Track, has massive potential to become both a 'White Elephant' and a massive drain on resources. Even when developed, there is potential for it to be idle a lot of the time.  However, with the advent of Large Scale Infrastructure Fund (LLSIF), from the Department of Transport, Sport and Tourism, there is far greater scope to build one. Sharing the facility with compatible sports and activities, the venue could and should be capable of sustaining extremely high usage, justifying the development. Other ways and means of generating support revenue would certainly help.  Developing a full-size Indoor Track in Cork is not something for the faint-hearted! Anyone interested?

In Summary.... A very welcome development - one that adds to the available facilities in Cork.... BUT.....We'll be waiting quite a while before we see an indoor athletics T&F meet in Cork!  However... If we don't dream about it, and look for ways and means to develop one... It may never happen.

Cologne - Cork Twinning

Cologne is one of several cities, from all across the world, to have been twinned with Cork City

Links with Cologne were formally established in May 1988, in Cologne, and subsequently, when a party visited Cork in May 1989, when the second stage of the formal twinning ceremony was completed. Since then, the exchange has gone from strength to strength, especially in the fields of education, training, music and athletics.

Over the years many exchanges have taken place between the cities on various projects.
Over the past 11 years we have been inviting athletes from our twinned cities to the Cork Marathon and  more recently the city of Cologne have reciprocated by extending an invitation to Cork to participate in their annual marathon. Since 2011 athletes have been travelling to Cologne and the reports back have been overwhelmingly positive with some athletes making return visits.

 

Cork City Council, in conjunction with our partners in the Office for International Affairs, Cologne would like to invite 2 interested Cork runners to take part in the 2018 Cologne marathon.  The 2019 marathon takes place on Sunday, 13th October.
