Athletics Ireland Registration Figures to end June 2017

Athletics Ireland End-of-Month Registration Figures - June 2017

 

 Athletics Ireland Clubs June 2017

 
Number of Clubs

In terms of the number of clubs, both Cork and Dublin stand apart from the other counties, with Dublin having 34 clubs, while Cork now has 53 clubs.  These higher figures may be explained by Dublin's large population density, and Cork's sheer size, being the largest county.

Cork Athletics Registrations stand at 7,345 registered Cork Athletics-Athletics Ireland members.  The 2016 end of June figure was 6,662, representing an increase of 10.27%.

 

All fifty three registered clubs have now registered athletes, while Cork Athletics newest club, Ballinacurra Villagers AC, are just about on the radar, with one member registered to date.

 

At the May meeting of Cork Athletics County Board, Registrar, John Copithorne, said that many coaches and officials are continuing to be actively involved in Athletics,  but remain unregistered.

 Unregistered athletes, coaches and/or officials are NOT covered by the Athletics Ireland insurance for any purpose whatsoever, leaving those athletes, officials, coaches and clubs in a precarious position. 

Any club having difficulties registering their athletes should contact Cork Athletics Registrar, John Copithorne 0861713500

 

2017 Athletics Ireland Registrations are now Due

Clubs are reminded that 2017 registrations should be completed as soon as possible. There was a "grace period" of a few weeks, to allow sufficient time for re-registrations, whereby insurance cover continued, pending registration.  This "grace period" does NOT extend beyond January 31st and does NOT include competition.  Therefore any athlete remaining unregistered beyond January 31st is NOT covered by Athletics Irelands insurance, for ANY purpose, training or competition.


Clubs are urged to register all remaining unregistered personnel without further delay.

 

NB: The "grace period" covers official club, county, provincial and national training sessions.  It does NOT cover competition. All athletes competing in Championship or representative events MUST be registered.  Club Registrars are reminded that there is a new Registration System in operation.

 

Webmaster's Note: I have been 'Banging on' for ages about the Bandon Rugby Club case. The Irish Times reported on the case in April 1997.  Twenty years later, the judgement is still as relevant, and stands out as a warning to the consequences of not registering members of an organisation.  A further related Irish Times article advises clubs to ensure that members are registered.

 

Overall Registrations as at June 30th 2017

Leevale AC has consolidated it's position at the head of the list, ahead of Bandon AC, with both club having over 600 registered members, and each over 200 registrations ahead of third placed Ballymore-Cobh AC, who approach the 400 mark. Midleton AC in fourth position, and Youghal AC in fifth, with the latter three clubs all now comprising over 300 registered members.  A total of twelve clubs exceed the 200 registrations mark, while a further fifteen clubs have over 100 registered members.
