BMX Australia's Coach Education Program aims to educate, assist and develop coaches at all levels, in all disciplines (racing and freestyle) so that they can fully support the nurturing and development of their riders.

  • 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. The focus of coaches at this level will be vital in supporting the growth in new riders participating in BMX.
  • The Level 1 BMX is a coaching course aimed at people who want to coach Club level and State/Territory championship level BMX riders to develop BMX skills, riding fitness and racing skills. The coaching course addresses generic coaching and BMX techniques, and will allow coaches to nurture and develop BMX riders. The accreditation allows you to independently plan, prescribe and evaluate BMX training for BMX riders.
  • The Level 2 BMX coaching course is aimed at the coach who works with elite riders competing in BMX National Championships. In particular, this course provides the underpinning knowledge for coaching an emerging elite young athlete who seeks to represent Australia at Junior or Elite BMX National and International events. The course provides in-depth information on physiology and physiological assessment, performance monitoring and assessment, sports psychology in BMX, advanced racing skills and race preparation, and recovery and crisis management of the injured riders.
  • The Freestyle BMX Coach Training Program is aimed at people who want to coach beginner riders to develop and advance their Freestyle BMX skills. The training program includes generic coaching principles and their application to Freestyle BMX coaching. The accreditation allows you to plan, deliver and evaluate coaching sessions for Freestyle BMX riders. The work of Freestyle BMX coaches is vital in supporting new riders to the sport.
