Yearly BMX Calendars are stacked with weekend BMX Racing, without the best interests of the athlete in mind. In fact – BMX racing might be the only sport on the planet that has no OFF SEASON.
Life can’t always be about BMX, mix it up!
Families need to consider picking and choosing the events that meet there why’s and the athlete’s effort towards their personal investment towards training.
So my message to BMX Clubs is consider running BMX Events not just BMX Races. Club’s should consider BMXdevelopment coaching Advice (Quality not Quantity) Hosting special training days, regular training, Club racing, and one awesome annual event per year will keep things humming nicely without the overload and stress of doing everything – but the things that matter most.
This mindset produces a predictable year of what’s happening and what’s to come. Keeping everything documented entitles your events to improve over time no matter who wants to control the club.
Offering 1 x major annual event will keep your club remembered and BMX families coming back year after year… if every BMX club considered doing the same, WOW BMX could be changed forever!
Find out what your members really seek, and provide the best case scenario to what your Club and Committee are able to offer based on your circumstances.
When you offer training lessons and club racing, try your best to start on time and make it as exciting as possible. Do the best your committee can do with what you got, and your people will respect that!
FUN with EASE attracts volunteers to get involved – ensure to thank them, or offer a culture of incentives.
