Nanaimo BMX Mentorship Program
Nanaimo BMX has a fantastic group of older Expert riders (ages 12-19) that are used as rider mentors to younger members at the track.
The ways that we promote this mentorship is through;
- When new riders arrive at the track for the first time, we pair up a new rider with one or two of our Expert riders - to help ease the transition to the track. Our mentor riders then take these riders around the track and ride with them to ensure that they feel comfortable. This relationship between the riders extends beyond this initial meeting and they make themselves available to offer advice and reassurance whenever needed.
- During our Structured Practices, our Expert riders participate as mentors and coaches.
- Expert/Mentor riders also model positive behaviours (sportsmanship, respect, etc) at the track.
For more information, feel free to ask us at the moto shed at anytime.
