Coaching in BMX
Just like you wouldn't sign up for a basketball team that didn't have a coach or send your child up a big lift at a ski resort without first stopping at ski school, why would you start racing BMX without proper guidance or instruction. At first glance, riding and racing on a BMX Track can be an intimidating concept. Don't worry, we have you covered. From your first time standing up on your pedals, to your first trophy, a USA BMX Licensed Coach can be there to guide you. Be sure to ask your local track when coaching is avaible.
