How to get Involved
Akron BMX is a VOLUNTEER run organization that needs everyone’s help.
The track is always looking for volunteers. Volunteers are the strength and heart of Akron BMX. There is always something that needs done, and the more help... the better!
On race day's there is a sign up board located at Registration, for various positions we need to execute the event. The staff is available to answer questions on what is entailed, within the different race day positions.
Work Days are scheduled at various times throughout the year. Work days are advertised on the Akron BMX track Facebook group page.
Akron BMX Volunteer Program
In appreciation for the dedication of our volunteers, special awards are given throughout the year and at the year end banquet.
The qualifications for the volunteer awards are:
Volunteer 5 times - a volunteer t-shirt

If you cannot volunteer during scheduled race or practices you can always volunteer to help behind the scenes or on days when the track is not open. Please contact a Board member for more information.
