Frequently asked questions

How is BMX racing a “family sport?”


BMX Racing is the ultimate family sport because it encourages all members of the family to come out to the track and cheer on their racer. Whether it's on the track, on the sidelines, or even on a bike; it is not uncommon to see three generations experiencing the fun, fitness, and quality time brought on by our amazing sport. Families come together at the BMX track in a way they don’t with most other traditional sports.




What’s the difference between the BMX Racing League program and the normal racing at my track?


There are two main differences between the League program and “Open Racing":
1) BMX Racing League is a strictly Beginners-only program. Existing racers are not eligible to participate.

2) In the League, participants sign up for a five week "season." Which includes their very-own instruction and racing sessions, along with other benefits. Open Racing involves three categories of riders (Novice, Intermediate, and Expert), and has a "show up to sign up" policy. These races are paid through a per-event fee. So riders may race as much (or as little) as they want.




What equipment does my rider need to participate?


Your rider needs a long sleeve shirt, long pants, and closed-toe shoes. Helmet and bicycle are encouraged but not required. Our tracks have both available for use as a courtesy of BMX Racing League. Note: if you are to bring a bicycle please ensure all reflectors, chainguard and pegs are removed for safety purposes.




My rider has a USA BMX membership, can s/he participate in the League?


USA BMX members are ineligible to participate. This program is designed for riders who are brand new to the sport.




We don’t have a bike and/or helmet. Can we still participate?


Yes! Loaner bikes & helmets are provided for use at no-cost to those enrolled. You'll reserve your equipment during the registration process.




How does the BMX Racing League work?


Participants enroll in a five-week "season," which includes instruction & racing, each week, in their very own Beginners-only environment. The one-time, all-inclusive tuition provides racers with a jersey, number plate, end-of-season award, pizza party, and free use of loaner bikes & helmets. BMX Racing League is designed to provide new families with the all the tools, knowledge and enjoyment they need to love our sport.




My rider can’t ride a two-wheeler yet, can s/he still be part of the league.


Unfortunately, all League riders must be proficient in riding a two-wheeled pedal bike, without training wheels.




What if we have to miss one or more of the sessions?


Life happens, so if you must miss a session due to sickness or other obligations, please contact your League Coordinator to make them aware of your absence. Be advised that no "make-up" sessions are available.




What awards will the riders receive?


Specific awards vary on a League-by-League basis, but all riders will be acknowledged upon completion of their season. A “Podium Award” will be given to the top three riders (by points) in each racing class, while others will receive a “Progression Award” to recognize the dedication and effort they put forth on the track.

It is important to make the distinction between our “progression” award and the “participation” trophy some sports give, just for enrolling. Each rider works hard to progress at his/her own pace and that needs to be rewarded.
