What is the First 10 Weeks Program?

F10W poster

The First 10 Weeks program is designed to take a new rider from the sidewalk to the podium.  A USA BMX Licensed Coach will guide each rider through 10 individual lessons that will increase confidence, skills, speed and safety on the track.  While in the First 10 Weeks Program, a coach will be able to give you feedback on your races and practices and help to tailor your experience to your needs.


When can I start?

You are able to start the First 10 Weeks Program at any time.  The first clinic(s) in the series are known as Intro to BMX and get you ready to practice on your own and prepare you to start at any point in the cycle of the First 10 Week Program
