My child has never ridden BMX before.  When can we come to see if he/she likes it?

USA BMX offers a one day trial membership for FREE. This allows riders to get out on the track to see what they think. After that there is an annual membership of $60 for full membership and $30 for balance bike mebership.  We also offer bike rentals for $20.00 including a helmet rental.   There are a limited number of bikes available to use during the “try the track” on Tuesdays and Thurdays (check Facebook for current schedule) night but participants can also bring their own bikes and helmets to use if they pass inspection by the staff.

How old should you be to get started? 

We have had children as young as 1 ride the strider track on a pedal-less bike also referred to as a balance, “strider” or push bike.   Participants as young as 2 years old can begin racing on the track if they have the proper equipment and skill level.

What is a strider?

A “strider” refers to both a brand of bike without pedals and a classification of a young rider usually between the ages of 2 and 5 who have not yet mastered pedaling a bike but wants to try the track or pump track.

Are there programs and/or races for striders?

 Yes on FRIDAY NIGHT we always offer strider racing on the last straight of the main track.

What is appropriate clothing to ride BMX?  

Long sleeve shirt and pants are required to ride on the BMX track. 


What kind of bike and helmet is required for BMX? 

A full face helmet is recommended for riders who participate in open practice and or racing.


Can I bring my own bike?  Does it need to meet certain guidelines?

You can bring you own bike and our staff will inspect it prior the your rider riding the track.  Your Bike MUST NOT have a kickstand and any foot pegs, chain guards, and reflectors removed.  A limited number of rental bikes and helmets are available on a first come first serve basis for rent.  Not all BMX bikes are suitable for riding on the track, so feel free to contact the BMX staff or a local bike shop for advice before you buy a bike. The board and volunteers at the track are happy to inspect your bike and provide feedback on what type of bike you will need to safely participate in BMX riding and racing. Okeeheelee BMX does reserve the right to disqualify a bike from being on the track if it is unsafe.


When are local races?  How/where do I register?

Check our website or Facebook for local race schedules and registration information.   Generally, registration and open practice will be held prior to each weekly race.  Awards will be given to the top three finishers in each classification.  Race classifications are broken down by age and skill level.  The three main classifications are novice, intermediate, and expert with age groups in each classification. 


Racing is $10.00 per local race, and Practice is $5.00. ALL riders on the track MUST register prior to riding on the track. WRIST BANDS are required.

Who can participate? 

Participants interested in racing must become a member of USA BMX so they can track their results and points through a national data base.   Anyone who is 2 years old and up, and has a USA BMX membership and has the skills and confidence is allowed to race. 

Can I register/renew with USA BMX at the track?

Yes, our staff will be happy to assist you with renewing or purchasing a new USA BMX membership upon your visit. We accept cash and all major credit cards.  Or you can visit for information on becoming a USA BMX member.  Memberships range $30 for Balance Bike Racers to $60 for Full Membership Annually.
