We are ASPIRE Cairns, an Athletics squad based in Cairns, Far North Queensland. We offer a positive training environment aimed at our developing athletes. Our goal is to provide a safe, inclusive, diverse and fun environment which enables our athletes to learn and develop an all-round athletic ability comprising of the five fitness components Speed, Endurance, Strength, Coordination and Flexibility.

We believe our training environment is the key to our success. We have managed to create a positive, encouraging, and accountable environment where athletes feel comfortable taking risks, learning from their mistakes, and reaching their full potential. We are committed to helping athletes achieve their goals, and we believe that everyone has the ability to succeed.

We pride ourselves on providing a strong personal relationship between every athlete and the coach. This is achievable by selecting athletes based on a long-term commitment to our program and limiting the number of athletes we take on.

Our squad consists of athletes who are dedicated to taking the next step in their athletic journey specific to Track and Field. Our program runs year round covering events ranging from the 100m through to Cross Country with a strong emphasis on the Australian Domestic Season.

The Coach

I'm Brendan Peeters, a passionate World Athletics coach with over 3 decades of experience as both an athlete and coach. My journey began as a junior athlete representing Queensland and Australia.

After my formative years, I pursued a dual path of professional development and athletics, specializing in the decathlon. A pinnacle moment was captaining Australia's Track and Field team at the 2008 Oceania Games, where I achieved gold.

Transitioning into coaching ignited a new passion. Guiding young athletes as they unlock their potential brings immense joy. My enduring enthusiasm for track and field fuels my coaching, and I'm excited to continue nurturing the next generation of athletes in this remarkable sport.
