Cork Athletics Registration Figures - June 30th 2019

Cork Athletics Registration Figures - June 30th 2019

 

cork athletics registration figures june 30th 2019

June end-of-month registrations for Cork Athletics stand at 7,287. All of Cork Athletics 56 registered clubs now have members registered.

The June figures are 0.95% up on the June 2018 corresponding figure of 7,219, but 0.08% (58) behind the June 2017 figure of 7,345. The corresponding 2016 figure was 6,662, while the June 2015 figure was 6,022

 

Renewals & Non-Renewals


63,4% of Cork Athletics members registered during 2018 have renewed their memberships this year. Of concern must be the fact that 36.7% have not renewed their registrations, so far, during 2019.

 

Comparing June 30th 2019 with June 30th 2018, 1,458 (33.7%) of last year's 4,332 adult registrants haven't returned, while 1,703 (39.6%) of the 4,296 Juveniles haven't come back yet. These non-renewals have been offset by 668 new adult registrations, along with 1,152 Juveniles. 

Juvenile drop-out is a worrying issue for all sports, nevertheless some action is warranted to tempt back some of those who have left the sport. Experience, across a wide range of sports & activities, has shown that many can be persuaded to return, by simply making contact - a phone call, email, message, or simle chat in the street can pay dividends.  Such contact can also be a great source of information for clubs, in particular reasons why people don't renew, and actions can be taken to address these issues, for the better of thhe club and it's members.

If YOUR club has lost some members - and, without doubt, you have, why not make contact with lapsed members and just chat... "We've missed you....  Would you like to come back....?  Was there something/somebody that put you off...?

It can pay dividends. You don't have to contact everybody on one day....a couple at a time...delegate some...Just Do It!


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
