Come down to our track on Sunday, June 3rd for our BMX Day in Alberta event! We will be down there from 12-2pm to welcome anyone who is curious about our sport and wants to try it out. Some of our seasoned riders will get on the track and give a demonstration of a BMX race too! We will have gear to lend out and waivers to sign for anyone who would like to ride the track and our Club members will be there happy to answer any questions you may have! We will have some snacks and hot dogs at our concession too! Our Club will then have one of our races after starting at 2pm. Come down with the family, try it out and then see some BMX riders in action on the track! See you down there to “DROP THE GATE”!
We have two exciting camps scheduled down at our track this season so far. Have a look at the posters below for more info!
If you have had a chance to drive by our track lately you will see that we are nowhere near being able to access our track yet. We are hoping to start on May 8th.
If we do start on the 8th we will have a “New Rider Night” for one hour. During this time, the track will be designated to new riders from 6:30-7:30, returning riders can access the track afterwards.
We will also have a Bike & Gear Swap set that night, so bring down any gear you are wanting to sell/trade and come down ready to find some great deals on gear you may need!
We will be holding an information night where families can also register for the 2018 BMX season on April 18th at the Centennial Centre in Okotoks in the Rotary room. Come see us to ask any questions you may have, learn more about our Club and Sport and have the opportunity to register. If you will be registering you will be required to fill out paperwork at the event as well as giving us a cheque for your volunteer requirements (if you fulfill your volunteer hours, the cheque will not be cashed).
Please save the date of Saturday, May 12th and plan to come down to the track for our first Work Bee of the 2018 Season. We have lots to do this year to get our track in tip top shape and the more hands on deck we have…the better!
At this Work Bee we will be focusing on the Pro Set, Rhythm Section, fixing up the bleachers, getting the safety fence started and general track tidy up.
Please stay tuned for more details closer to the date.
*this Work Bee will count towards your volunteering commitment to the Club*
The Okotoks Board has been working diligently to bring you the best season ever this year! We would like to invite all club members to come out and join us at B-line indoor bike park in Calgary on February 10th at 10:30 am for some pre-season riding! Our Board member Jeff has secured the following prices…
$31.50 for all day, $24 group rate for 3 hours of riding (10:30-1:30), $35.00 for a bike rental and half price for riders under 7
So get those bikes down from the rafters, dust them off and come join us for an awesome fun day of riding!
We are so excited that all the hard work we have done around our track has paid off and we were granted the 2018 Alberta BMX Grands and Provincial Championships on September 8th and 9th! We will be busy throughout the season getting ready for this big event to make it amazing. Stay tuned for opportunities to help out!
