TOP STORY

With the BMXA National Championships postponed due to the spread of COVID-19, a lot of questions about what happens next have been asked. Here we try to answer the most common:

When will Nationals be on now?

At this point in time we cannot confirm a date for nationals however we currently aiming for November 2020 (subject to change). We are working closely with the range of stakeholders and will make an announcement as soon as we can.

Where will Nationals be?

Nationals will still be in Launceston at Launceston BMX club.

Will we receive a refund on entries? When?

All participants will automatically receive a full refund on their entry and administration fees, and if applicable, late fees. These refunds will take some time to process with all entry fees expected to be returned within three (3) weeks. We appreciate your patience and apologise for any inconvenience caused by previous communication suggesting refunds would take 7-10 days.

NEWS BRIEF
BMXA STATEMENT REGARDING COVID-19 AND RECOMMENDATIONS TO STATES AND CLUBS

The BMXA Board and Senior Management have been monitoring advice from various Government departments in relation to COVID-19 and considering the impact on the BMX community and activities.

Initial advice from the Federal Government recommending cancellation or postponement of non-essential public gatherings of more than 500 people came into effect on Monday 16th March and led to the postponement of our National Championships. 

It is important to note that this advice, including the number of people could change at any time and may be either a State or Federal Government decision.
