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 the IAAF (International Athletics Association Federation).
We follow the basic principle of general training, which comes before Specific training. This means that the athletes learn skills and drills before training for a specific event.
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.
