About Us Code of Conduct
The Cairns Athletics Code of Conduct policy is intended to be the minimum standard for anyone involved in sport which includes Athletes, Coaches, Officials and Parents / Spectators.

For the enjoyment of the sport by all, it is important that parents/carers understand the policy and explain it to their child.

Blue Card
All Cairns Athletic Committee Members, Chief Officials, Canteen Conveners and Team Managers must possess a Blue Card. A register is kept of all volunteers who currently hold a blue card, including number and expiry date.

Parent helpers are not required to hold a Blue Card, although we do encourage them, and forms are available from the Club Registrar or online.
Parents are encouraged to become qualified Officials. They are an integral part of our club, not only vital for our carnivals, but the knowledge gained increases competency on the field each club day. This ensures smooth running of all events. If you are interested in becoming an Official please see one of committee members to register your interest.
Code of Conduct
This year our coaches will be conducting training/coaching on various disciplines, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5.15pm to 6.30pm. This time may change throughout the year. Training may be conducted on other days depending upon coaches’ availability and requirements of athletes. Changes and updates will be advised in weekly club newsletters. Athletes 8 years and older, including masters, are welcome to participate. Athletes under 16 years of age must have a parent / career at Barlow Park during the training sessions.

Are you interested in becoming a Coach? The Club provides training each year to further develop our coaches’ skills. Our Club will subsidise a coach’s training expenses and full details are available from our committee members. Please ask for details.
