Volunteering

KBMX is a not for profit organization. We rely fully on the parent volunteers to operate if we do not have volunteers we cannot run races or events. We have reduced our fees to be affordable for families,(three years ago we were $250 now $180) part of the commitment we require for this  is 10 hours minimum per family per season, plus 2 track work sessions. Many hands make light work. It also gives you an appreciation of the work it takes to keep the track in a safe condition for your kids. (or maybe yourself... There are many parents that ride too).


When you help out and get involved it helps create a sense of family within the club, also when your kids see you helping they see that you care about what they are doing and they will often try harder and in turn that increases their self-esteem.
