Exciting New BMX programme!
We are excited to announce our brand new BMX coaching programme. BMX is a fun sport, whatever your ability. Our sessions are led by a fully qualified coach and include all the equipment your son or daughter will need to enjoy the sport safely, including a BMX bike. Our BMX lessons take place at the Platt Fields outdoor track, in Fallowfield, South Manchester. Our BMX coaching sessions incorporate flat skills training first of all and a gradual introduction to using the track itself.
Platt Fields Outdoor Track has been built to the very best national standards and incorporates a number of exciting different ramps and jumps which are suited to all abilities: beginners, intermediate and advanced.
We offer BMX track coaching to young people from the ages of 8 to 12 at the Platt Fields outdoor track on Fridays from 4 to 5pm. The sessions cost £4.50. Booking is essential as places are limited. Our kids BMX classes are led by a National Cycling Centre coach and include BMX bike hire, cycle helmets, knee and elbow pads.
Riding a BMX is more than just an exciting skill for young people to learn. It is a healthy form of exercise, encouraging fitness and stamina. Your child will also enjoy the challenge that each coaching session brings. They will gain in confidence as they realise that the stunts that they had previously thought were impossible are achievable after all. They will also learn to control their bike to a high degree which will help them when riding on the road or even learning to drive when they are older. Our coaches emphasise safety at all times and our young riders learn to respect themselves, their bikes and the track itself. Self-control, perseverance and staying safe are encouraged from the start during our BMX track coaching sessions.
