Beginner BMX Coaching

The Beginner BMX Coaching Course (Beginner BMX) has been developed by BMX Australia (the National Sporting Organisation for BMX in Australia) and in line with the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) Guidelines for the Design and Registration of NCAS & NOAS Accreditation Programs. This coaching course provides coaches with opportunities to learn, to study and to be assessed for both the theoretical and practical aspects of coaching entry-level BMX. The Beginner BMX Coaching Course is accredited on the National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS), a program of the ASC. As a result, it is a nationally recognised coaching course and is directly linked to the ASC Coaching and Officiating Unit standards in coaching.


The Beginner BMX Coaching Course is an entry-level course aimed at people who want to coach a novice (ie. 2-8 years old or mature age beginner riders) BMX rider. The course aims to teach the Beginner Coach the basics of BMX coaching, including: the role of the coach, planning and reviewing a session and managing risk. Knowledge and implementation on how to break down and coach the basic bike handling skills (from flat land progressing to the BMX track), correct fitting of helmets, and optimising bike fit and set up using existing equipment will be gained from this course. The focus of coaches at this level will be vital in supporting the growth in new riders participating in BMX.
