l. Types of Coaches

 1. Local Coach

    • A Local Coach must be asociated with a USA BMX Track.
    • A Local Coach is required for a track to participate in the USA BMX Racing League.
    • Any parent, volunteer, racer or TO may become a Local Coach.  No riding experience is necessary.

    • All Planned coaching activity must be scheduled through the online scheduling system before a coaching license will be issued.
    • A local coach may not coach at a track where they are not regularly involved in the New Rider Program for that track.

2. Traveling Coach

Traveling Coaches are unique in their ability to offer expertise and experiences not always available at local tracks.  The goal of the Traveling Coach License is to provide these experiences without hindering the development of a Local Coach and a local New Rider Program.

Traveling Coach Licenses will be awarded based on a review process that will include the following:

    • The review of at least two Track Operators by the USA BMX Coaching Department regarding your request.
    • The completion of a Coaching Renewal Form and request to obtain a Traveling License.
    • Must have held a USA BMX Coach License for at least two (2) years.
      • The first year of a Traveling Coach License (third year coaching,) a Coach may coach at any track within their state or a 100 mile radius of the Coaches home track.
      • The second year of a Traveling Coach License (fourth year coaching,) a Coach may coach at any USA BMX / BMX Canada Track.

 

3.  Pro / Elite Guest and Guest Coach

    • A rider with a USA BMX / BMX Canada Professional Racing License may host/teach only three (3) clinics per year as "Special Guest" with a Licensed USA BMX Coach before that Professional rider is required to obtain a Coaching License.  This is to ensure Background Check, CPR, First Aid, Cuncussion and Safety Guidelines are met.

      • If a clinic is ran the same day as a race or general practice, the clinic must be entered as a separate event.
