The current Clare Athletics County Board was founded in 2000 with the joining of NACA & BLE and is now under the auspices
of the Athletic Association of Ireland more
commonly known as AAI. The Board consists of Officers, Hon. President, Chairman,
Vice-Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, P.R.O, Assisant P.R.O. and Committee members.
All members and Officers are elected at the Annual General Meeting.
Board is affiliated to AAI which is the sole governing body for all
athletics in Ireland. At county level, the Board organises and
regulates under AAI rules, all Championship competitions, Track and
Field, Road and Cross Country. Whilst the Board can establish its own
bye-laws to ensure the smooth running of events etc, rules and regulations
as set out by the National body also apply.
The aims of the
Board are to foster and promote all athletics at Club and County level
for Juvenile, Junior, Senior and Master athletes. Cross Country
Championships for Juvenile, Junior, Novice, Intermediate and Senior
athletes are held during the season. Teams and athletes from these
Championships are then entered in Provincial and National Competition.
This also applies in the Track and Field and Road sections.
All the Officers, Committee and
helpers who run the business of the Board are volunteers, who give their
time and expertise free of charge for the benefit of the athletes and
