Bexhill Coaching Sessions
Coaching takes place on Saturday mornings, typically twice per monthly. Always a guaranteed rad group of people to ride with. Involves race and jump training, plenty of goofing around but always plenty of solid riding. All ages and all abilities, beginners to national racers, serous riders to social riders.
What equipment will I need? You’ll need a full-face, gloves, long sleeves and bottoms. Pads are highly recommended. A safe bike, no pegs and bar ends due to our current insurance.
How do I book a coaching session? There’s no need to pre-book for the Tuesday 6:30-8pm Open Gates session. If your rider has the basic skills to get round the track independently, unaided and safety AND has the appropriate equipment if then should be able to join straight in.
Keep your eyes pealed on this page and on our socials regarding the future coaching sessions. We aim to begin our coaching sessions on July 2nd.
Beginners sessions will be in 3 week blocks, where they will learn the foundation skills. Beginners can repeat the block of coaching if they need.
Details on novice, intermediate and expert coaching will be published soon. In the meantime join in with the Tuesday open gates session 🙂
I am a new beginner, how do I book a session? New beginners are required to make contact before booking onto a session. Please email [email protected] This helps us get to know you, and helps us choose the correct session. We will be offering induction sessions – where riders and parents will be able to find out more info. This session will also allow the coach to watch your rider in action, this helps to place the rider into the most appropriate session. A place in coaching sessions is not guaranteed after the induction, but we will do our best to include riders where possible.
We have finite resources and need to ensure the safety of all riders. Therefore we often limited the number of new riders each week.
Do I need to be a member to book a session? No, everyone is welcome to book on. However, the sessions are cheaper for members, so it’s worth joining as a member if you plan on being a regular. Sessions are first come, first serve.
Are the coaches qualified? Yes, our head coach is accredited by British Cycling (level 2 – currently working towards L3) DBS safeguarding checked, first aid qualified with a Sports Science degree. We’re not about producing identical robots from a coaching handbook, but to encourage each rider to use this foundation to help express themselves in their own individual way. In a nutshell, our priority is getting people stoked on BMX.
Sessions will include:
Race coaching: Beginner coaching / Intermediate coaching / Expert coaching (for experienced regional standard and upwards) / Coach-led races (fun local social races with a spot of coaching support) and Open Gate Practice (opportunity to practice whilst supervised with the start gate operating). Learn to Jump sessions will also be available using our jump park.
If you’re looking for coaching in or around London, then we highly recommend Dean Reeves. The South’s fastest Super Class racer, rides the fastest S&M Steel Panther in the world and the best independent coach in London.
