BMX RACING FOR ALL AGES

BMX COACHING FOR ALL ABILITIES

BMX RACING

The Royston BMX Club was formed almost 30 years ago to promote the sport of BMX Racing. Over the years, the Club has attracted members from across the region and is widely recognised as one of the friendliest clubs in the country.
The club has its own race track situated in Burns Road, Royston, on land owned by the North Herts. District Council and is open for public use at all times the club is not using it.
Club's members take part in race meetings at Club, Regional and National or even International level. The membership covers a wide age range and both sexes, so everyone can take part - even Mums and Dads!

COACHING

The Royston Rockets are part of British Cycling’s Go-Ride Club Development Programme aimed at improving both riders and clubs and focuses on volunteers and young members – improving coaching standards and increasing the number of riders with access to coaching activities.
The Rockets have met certain criteria to enable the club to join the programme but along the way the club must continually work towards improving themselves and achieving ‘best-practice’.
Go to the Club Coaching page to watch our coaching videos.

VOLUNTEERS and SOCIAL EVENTS

The club depends on it's members to volunteer for various roles throughout the year. From those on the committee to those that run the club s race events and make run the coaching sessions the club could not work without them. Many of the roles, such as coaches and race Commissaries, required additional training and whilst the club tries to support these courses financially it is still down to the individual volunteer to make it work. If any one wishes to assist the cub as a volunteer, membership is not essential - just send us an email via the "Contact Us" page and we will be happy to talk to you.

Royston Regional – April 17th

Well done to all our club members who took part in last Sundays regional race at Royston – the track team did a great job with the surface, berm lines, etc. to give the riders from across the region a fantastic day of racing on a fast, exciting track. The kitchen team were also kept busy – at least two trips out to get extra supplies and still hardly nothing left at the end of the day!!The regional officials were out in force which made the day run smoothly and bang on schedule finishing off with the Winter Series Trophy presentation – and only a few trophies not collected.

The good news is we all get to do it again later in the year – without the trophies! Check the “Diary Dates” page for more details.
