Cairns Athletics was formed 16 October 2005 and Incorporated 10 November 2006 and Incorporates Cairns Little Athletics (Formed May 1984) & Cairns & District Athletics Club Inc (revived 1976). Cairns Athletics is a family orientated club and we aim to provide athletes of all ages with the opportunity to grow and develop in the sport of Athletics.

Our Club is based at Barlow Park and the club nights are held on most Friday nights at 5:30pm through each school term. We hold a range of events throughout the year, including the Coral Coast Carnival, interclub events and senior track and field events.

During club nights, the athletes participate in 5 events on a rotation basis, allowing athletes to compete and gain experience in all running, throwing and jumping events. All parents and carers are to be on the field of play during club night, supervising and helping the children through each event. We also ask that parents and carers provide support in the canteen throughout the year.

The committee are always looking for support and welcome any new members, there are also opportunities to learn how to become a coach, track starter, photo finish operator, and throws, jumps and track official.

Cairns Athletics has 5 volunteer coaches who provide coaching and training session for all members. The 2023 coaching calendar will be posted shortly.
