ASPIRE CAIRNS exists to create a family-fun environment and a positive approach to Track and Field with focus on the development of our younger athletes in Cairns and the surrounding region.

At ASPIRE Cairns, our main focus is to develop the athlete as a whole, creating a safe, inclusive, diverse and fun environment for all our members with emphasis on a wide exposure to various training stimulus. ASPIRE Cairns follows the development structures set out and advised by World Athletics. This ensures that all ASPIRE athletes are given the opportunity, tools and knowledge to develop the skills required to perform a multitude of track and field events and are continually developing their overall athletic ability.

At the start of every new season, athletes are asked to think about their individual goals. These can be health related, performance related or competition focused. The coaches then work with the athletes to tailor sessions specifically targeted towards these goals, all the while providing the athlete with a positive, supportive, motivating, and respectful squad environment to flourish in.

ASPIRE Cairns is a successful and recognised squad within Queensland Athletics community, with athletes coming from as far south as Innisfail and as far North as Mossman. With an outstanding background as a National level decathlete and over 20 years of coaching experience, ASPIRE Head Coach Brendan brings both his passion and his expertise to the training ground, helping you believe and achieve your goals!
