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 Club days are held Friday nights or Sunday mornings, depending on bookings at Barlow Park for other events. See Calendar section for the club competition dates.
Club Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month in the Conference Room at Barlow Park. Meetings commence at 6:30pm. All members and parents are welcome.
Records and Results
Athlete’s Personal Best’s will be recorded, with the athlete earning a point for each improved performance. These points accrue towards prizes awarded throughout the season and the total recorded on an end of season trophy. As well as improved Personal Best points, attendance, event participation, and club records contribute to ‘athlete of the month’ prizes. Therefore it is vital for athletes to have their results recorded for each event including games and relays.
Cairns Athletics Club Records
To assist with updating of records, if you or your child breaks a record outside of our Club at a recognised meet/carnival, please complete an “Application for Record” form found on the club website under the heading of “Records and Results”. Please hand the completed form to the Secretary at the Registration Desk. The application is then considered for ratification at the next committee meeting. This application must have a print out of the event results attached (referencing a website for results will not be accepted). Failure to do so will result in the application not being considered.
