Coaching Program

SAFETY
It is our goal that parents are comfortable with and confident in our coaches character and ability to coach their children and look out for their well-being.  All USA BMX Coaching Candidates must pass three levels of prerequisites before they are allowed to even start the program.  

For the safety of our children, all Coaching Candidates must:

  • Recieve a Character Reference from a Track Operator, known as the Track Operator Letter of Recomendation
  • Be certified in Red Cross or American Heart Association Adult and Pediatric First Aid and CPR
  • Pass a Background Check
