BMX club seek­ing more mem­bers

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


THE Proser­pine BMX Club wel­comed new and ex­ist­ing rid­ers young and old to their an­nual open day at the club’s track be­hind Les Stagg Oval on Sun­day.

BMX coach and com­mit­tee mem­ber Julie Dries said it was pos­i­tive to see some new faces at the track de­spite the wet weather.

“The rain pre­vented us from get­ting any track time but it was a good op­por­tu­nity for new rid­ers to have a chat with cur­rent mem­bers and learn more about the sport of BMX,” she said.

“Those people who missed out on at­tend­ing the open day, but would still like to join the club, are en­cour­aged to at­tend one of our weekly events to signup.”

The club has both male and fe­male mem­bers from the age of four to over 50’s, and full coach­ing sup­port is avail­able to all age groups.

Proser­pine BMX Club mem­bers train ev­ery Mon­day night from 5.30pm, with rac­ing tak­ing place ev­ery Fri­day night from 6.30pm.

BMX is an ex­hil­a­rat­ing sport and is a great way for people to main­tain a healthy life­style while mak­ing new friends in a com­pet­i­tive, sport­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

All cur­rent mem­bers are busy train- ing for the up­com­ing Bur­dekin BMX Club cham­pi­onship which will see many tal­ented BMX rid­ers from Cairns to Ser­ena com­pete next Satur­day, March 22.

The event will be the per­fect warmup for rid­ers go­ing on to com­pete at the Aus­tralian Ti­tles in Shep­par­ton, Victo- ria at the end of April.
