Cork Athletics Registration Figures - September 30th 2017

Record Cork Athletics Registration Figures - September 30th 2017

 

 cork athletics registration plate september 30th 2017

 

As of September 30th, Cork Athletics Registrations stand at 7,897 registered Cork Athletics-Athletics Ireland members, a 5.45% increase on August.  The December 2016 end of year figure was 7,822, so, with just under three months to go to year end, The 8,000 mark will surely be broken

 

All of Cork's fifty three registered clubs now have registered athletes, however, as per the past three months, both Cork Varsities AC, with 9 registered members, and Ballinacurra Villagers AC, with just 1 registered member, have less than the requisite ten (10) members to constitute an Athletics Ireland registered club.

 

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 UNREGISTERED athletes are NOT covered by Athletics Irelands insurance, for ANY purpose, training or competition.


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

 

 

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 August 31st 2017

Leevale AC consilidate their position at the head of the list, ahead of Bandon AC, with over 700 members. Bandon are in solid second place, while third placed Ballymore-Cobh AC have exceeded the 400 mark, with Midleton AC on their heels, in fourth position. Youghal AC are in fifth place, with 324, while Togher AC and Belgooly AC are both within striking distance of the 300 registrations mark.   Eight more clubs have passed the 200 registrations mark, while another seventeen clubs have over 100 registered members. 

Sadly two clubs have less than the minimum required 10 members to constitute a valid Athletics Ireland club.

Age Distribution & Analysis

The graph show some disturbing aspects, which athletics shares with other physically-active sports such as soccer, rugby and GAA, particularly the drop off from early teen, until the later twenties.  The dropout in there age groups is not confined to athletics, it could also be looked upon as an opportunity, as athletics is a healthy, cheap and clean (apart from cross-country (LOL)) sport, so, if this could be capitalised upon participation might be significantly increased.

A second, more worrying aspect is the low participation rate in the late teens to mid twenties, as this is the age group from which our representative International athletes is most likely to be drawn.

Overall Age Distribution

Age Distribution - Under 8 - Under 23

 

cork athletics 24 plus age distribution september 2017

Age Distribution - Under 23 to 35

The increase in participation in the later 20's is welcome, but the lower age involvement is an area that might receive particular concentration

 

cork athletics over 35 age distribution september 2017

Age Distribution - 36 to 50

Participation within this group is pretty steady, with an apparent drop-off at the top end. An alternative view of thuis might be that rates among 'older' adults is actually increasing. More data is required, however.
