ADDITIONAL NOTES

Coaching Licenses will need to be renewed each year, Background Checks and First Aid Certifications will need to be renewed every 2 years as well as Continuing Education Units (TBA).

In closing, the USA BMX Coaches Certification program is designed to add tools any track's toolbox of success.  The Coaching Certification program is NOT designed to change or impede any clinics or advanced clinics that your track and coaches are currently hosting.  

If your track already has a program that is working well, we encourage you to continue to utilize it, and the process of having a certified coach will merely be a formality that helps to ensure the charater of the coach and the well being of all of our children.  USA BMX encourages as much coaching as possible to be available at Local BMX Tracks as this increases the athleticism and retention of all riders.  Our program even teaches local coaches the value of bringing in guest pro's and clinic tours that help to excite the riders and keep them in the sport longer.
