CAN WE TRUST THAT SCRUFFY GUY?
The lead coach is fully qualified don’t worry about it. He sometimes bangs on titles but he needs to let it go.
We could tell you that Bexhill BMX track sessions are based on the latest teaching methods from British Cycling, which is true, but what we’re really about is proper BMX mischief. Put the kettle and Google Dave Clymer.
If your parents think Dave Clymer is a bad influence than tell them something like…”Mum, I need to go to JumpClub they teach core fundamental techniques and skills. This is the same approach used with British Cycling’s top riders, whose coaches often strip back to basics. Establishing good habits and a strong foundation will enable riders to reach their potential and find their own style in their own time”.
The idea is not to produce identical robots but to encourage each rider to use this foundation to eventually express themselves in their own individual way.
To be honest, all we care about is getting kids stoked on BMX.
What do I need?
You need a safe BMX bike with bar ends, no pegs, full length trousers and long sleeve top with a correctly fitted full-face helmet, gloves, knee pads and elbow pads minimum.
