Licence & Fees

All fees are due once a year. BMX Racing is a year round Sport – so you get value for money. Depending on the kind of licence you apply for, you don’t need to limit yourself to only racing at your club. You can choose to race at ANY club. For example: the Happy Valley Club races on Friday nights, The Cove club races on Sunday mornings – you can also race Tea Tree Gully, Cross Keys, Mildura, Mt Gambier etc. Check our links page for links to their website to find out their race nights.
