Cork Athletics Registration Figures - March 31st 2019

Record Cork Athletics Registration Figures - March 31st 2019

 

cork registrations march 2019

March end-of-month registrations for Cork Athletics stand at a new record for March: 6,337. All of Cork Athletics registered clubs now have members registered.

The March figures are 6.3% up on last March's corresponding figure of 5,961, and 4.6% ahead of the March 2017 figure of 6,059. The corresponding 2016 figure of 5,575, while the March 2015 figure was 4,815, and 4,454 in March 2014.

3,071 of last year's registered adults (71.32%) have re-registered, while the corresponding Juvenile re-registration percentage is 76.15% (3,266).  462 adults (15.04%) and 830 (25.41%) are new registrations.

Unregistered Members

cork registration renewals march 2019

A total of 3,550 individuals, who were Registered during 2018, have not, for whatever reason, been Registered yet this year. This is an area in which Club Registrars might be able to follow-up, and, maybe, boost their membership, particularly among adults. Unfortunately, with Juveniles, and across all sports in Ireland, and the UK, there is a huge drop-off from the early teens onward. Nevertheless Club Registrars might consider contacting lapsed members, to invite them back. Sometimes it takes just a phone call to  bring someone back. [NB: If contacting Juveniles, the contact MUST be through an adult, generally a parent]

Three clubs clubs still 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 2019 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
