Coaching

Club coaching is held on Tuesdays and is currently at a cost of $3 per rider  (to be paid in the clubrooms where you can obtain your ‘training pass’ for the session).Children under 16yrs MUST have a parent or guardian supervising. The evening is split into the following groups:

$3 per rider

6pm – 6.45pm.          Sprockets (under 8) & Novice riders- structured coaching sessions.

6.45pm – 8.00pm.     8yrs – Open – gate practice with coaching offered if available.

Our Coaches are only too willing to talk to you or your child should you need assistance with something.The club coaching structure can change leading up to major events such as state or national championships.The South Australian BMX Association hold sprocket clinics and development programs from time to time. Flyers advertising these are usually placed on the notice board.

 

** Riders not wishing to participate in training and take instructions from the coaches are not permitted on the track during the above times **

    Hi,

    My son is five years old and we are interested in coming down to the track and having a try.

    Can you please make a suggestion of when is best to come and visit and also what he needs to bring for his first visit.

    Thank you for your time.

    Kind Regards,

    Michelle Molloy

    Hi, Thanks for your enquiry

    Under 8’s and beginners training is from 6.00pm – 6.45p on Tuesdays.
    It is best to arrive 10 minutes early on your first night so that you can complete all the paperwork.

    Riders must have a licence to ride in order to be covered with insurance etc. The best way to allow your little one to try out is to get a 4 month licence which is $40 and allows you to train and race (most events) at any BMX Australia affiliated club.

    Riders must wear long pants and long sleeves. They must wear full faced helmets and long finger gloves (both of these items can be borrowed from the club). You can bring along your own bike (with things such as the chain guard, reflectors, bell etc removed) or there are a limited number of club loan bikes you can borrow. Pedal back brake bicycles are not really suitable for the track

    Hope that helps

    Your information is very useful & handy thank you. We have had a sour unfriendly experience at another club & my poor keen & extremely eager kids didn’t even hit the track. So we might pop down and check you out on Tuesday night. I have a 5yr old & 4yr old very keen to hit the track.

    Hi Skye, sorry for the very late reply, I have not quite got to grips with this website! I hope you have made it to the track and your kids are riding now.
