BMX MONDAY NIGHT PRACTICE IS NOT MANDATORY! 


Our practices are a learning environment for riders who wish to improve their skill level and get some tips from our expert coaches. 
Our coaches will help you achieve your goals while having tons of fun in a healthy, active family environment.

The track is open all day during the week and you're more then welcome to practice, roll, ride, race and play with your friends and family for your own great practice, keeping in mind that our Monday night practice is for listening, learning, and trying new things, and pushing yourself to another level. Just being on the track is always great practice, so you make BMX what you want it to be!! That's the best part about this sport!​

HINTS and TIPS: Try to start at the beginning of the practice time and stay to the end of your practice to get the most out of these dedicated coaches. Warm up at least 15 minutes before you practice. Bring lots of water! SMILE and have fun!

Again, practice is not mandatory and this schedule is a guideline only. We are very flexible coaches and want every rider in the practice that will best suit them, safety wise, and in their comfort zone. It's up to the coaches and the individual rider where the best fit is for them in practice. 


EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT!!! AND THAT'S AWESOME!!!    THAT'S BMX!!! 


Any questions about practice, please see Shylo or Chris.

Moto Sheets & Staging

Moto sheets will be posted online only @ www.vernonbmx.com or www.vernonbmx.ca

You must check moto sheets the morning of racing, and submit any changes to vernonbmx@outlook.com by noon race day.
If your name is missing or something is incorrect, you must email  Registration@vernonbmx.com by noon race day to correct the mistake. Motos often have to be re-posted after changes have been made. They will be finalized by 3pm race day and posted online.

When you hear the Announcer say "All Riders to Staging" it means that all riders must go up to the Start Hill.  

A Staging volunteer will direct you to the correct lane and gate position.

It is important that you have the same plate number on your bike as what is printed on the Moto Sheets.  
This will ensure proper gate position and scoring.
