WHAT'S NEW!

CLUB TRANSFER UPDATE

PIC: ProLab Projects


BMX Australia has implemented a new process for members wishing to transfer from one club to another.

Previously, members had to download/print a form for both the old/new club to sign. It is now available online through a member’s account.


THE BENEFITS

  • No more printing out the Club Transfer Form!
  • Save time chasing up clubs – emails are now sent to the old/new club through OSM which notifies them of a member wishing to transfer in and out of the clubs.
  • BMX Australia will see which stage of the club transfer the member is at (whether the old club or new club has an outstanding action)

BMX Australia hopes this assists our clubs with making it easier for your committee to sign off and on for members transferring between clubs within BMX.

If you have any questions/issues, please contact the BMX Australia Office at membership@bmxaustralia.com.au or 02 9008 1300.

MINI WHEELER COORDINATOR COURSE

PIC: BMX Victoria Facebook page
The Mini Wheeler Coordinator Course has been developed by BMX Australia.

The course provides essential information regarding the Mini Wheeler program and will provide coordination and coaching skills to members who wish to get involved with the future superstars of BMX in Australia!

This course is great for parents and riders aged 14 years and above to give back to the sport by teaching Mini Wheelers about having fun and participation.

2019 BMXA AND CLUB FORUMS
PIC: Energy Images

During 2019, we want to hear from you!
 
We are planning to hold club workshops and club/member chats at each national series event and the national championships.
 
Plus, we’ll be holding a dial-in Webinar every six months (TBD) so we can hear from you directly and let you know what we have on-the-go in the BMXA Office.
 
Save-the-date NOW for your national series and national champs workshop and chat, as we’d love to talk to as many clubs as possible in person. 

If you’re at another state’s NS round or at national champs, you are most welcome to attend and let us know your thoughts.

SCREENING REPORTS
PIC: GetSnapt



Ever wondered why your coaches or officials aren’t appearing on the BMXA website accreditation lists?
 
It’s probably because one of their screenings, like WWCC or First Aid, has expired.
 
We’ve created an easy way for you to check what’s on file with BMXA.

1. Log into your OSM Club homepage
2. Click on “Reporting” across the top
3. Click on “Ad-Hoc Queries” and scroll down to a report called “Screening List by Membership Type and Date”.
4. This report lists the screenings BMXA has on file for your club members. 
And by the way – this new report means that BMXA can store the WWCC information for any of your club volunteers who are not officials or coaches.
 
Get your club volunteers to upload their WWCC (or you can do it for them) by:

5. Logging into their MyBMX membership profile
6. Click on “Profile” tab across the top
7. Click on “My Screening” and upload their WWCC details.
8. BMXA will then clear their WWCC and send an email to let them know
9. Their cleared WWCC will appear in your “Screening List by Membership Type and Date” report.

For coaches/officials – the process is slightly different (via the coaches/officials tab).

CLICK HERE for the coaches/officials upload process.
 
You’ll now be able to see all your coaches, officials and volunteer members who have WWCC’s on file with BMXA via your Club’s Screening Report.
 
Easy!   
 
PS: First Aid certificate uploads are also on our hit-list for 2019. Stay tuned!

DON'T FORGET

START HILLS FOR RIDE IN2BMX
ARE NO LONGER PERMITTED.

This is because:

  • Full-faced helmets are no longer required to be worn by attendees at Ride In2BMX events
This means:
  • Attendees at Ride In2BMX events can wear any Australian standards approved helmet and requiring a full-faced helmet will no longer stop anyone attending a Ride In2BMX event.
 
Don’t forget - the new 4 month membership means Ride In2BMX attendees can join your club at a low cost and “on-the-spot” using the BMXA App.

Once a member, they can ride the start hill under proper supervision and wearing a full-faced helmet. This is great way for your club to increase membership!

Not sure what activities to do for your Ride In2 BMX event?
  • BMXA has put together a whole heap of activities you can hold for your Ride event
  • Plus a schedule of when to start your planning and who to approach for promotion and sponsorship

All your club has to do is post a photo and a short story on any of their social media accounts and include the hastag #yoursportstory.
