How do I join Sunbury BMX Club?

Joining Sunbury BMX Club and competing in our Club Meets as well as Open Race Meets is easy.

All you need to do is come along to one of our training nights or club meets, fill out a few forms and pay the appropriate fees. Once you have completed all of the appropriate paperwork, and paid the fees, you can start racing straight away.

Please note that

  • BMX Australia will require you to supply a photocopy of either your birth certificate or drivers license as a proof of age document for licensing purposes.
  • Riders under the age of 18 years must have a parent or legal guardian to sign all paperwork.

Alternatively you can join on line at BMX Australia.

Do I need special equipment?

Any 20 or 24 inch BMX bike will be fine. Mountain bikes (up to 26 inches) are ok for use at club level and at some regional events. Before the day of the race meet, you need to make sure that your bike is safe for BMX racing. This means removing the following from your bike to ensure the safety of yourself and your fellow riders:

  • Mud and Chain Guards.
  • Reflectors, Kick Stands, Carriers and Pegs.
  • Make sure your handlebars have no torn grips and have bar ends with no sharp edges.
  • Make sure that your rear brakes are working.

Riders that are not sure if their bike is up to racing standard can get them checked by one of our club volunteers prior to racing.

What do I have to wear?

BMX tracks have an abrasive surface and the club feels that safety is a major consideration. All riders must wear appropriate clothing to participate in a race meet. No exceptions will be made, regardless of weather or the reason.

  • Long Pants – Jeans or track pants are fine
  • Long Sleeve Top – such as a windcheater
  • Shoes – you must wear fully enclosed shoes to protect your feet
  • Socks – socks need to be long enough to cover your ankles
  • Gloves – any gloves that have complete hand and finger protection
  • Full face helmet that covers your ears -bicycle helmets are not acceptable
  • Pads – Top bar, gooseneck and handlebar pads are not compulsory but are recommended
