BMXA is proud to announce a new relationship with Veteran Sport Australia (VSA), an organisation set up after the 2018 Invictus Games, which seeks to support the health and wellbeing of veterans and their families through sport and recreation.

VSA makes it easy for veterans and their families to connect with individual and team sport, one-off competitive events, camps and multi-sport games. They provide pathways to coaching and mentoring training and access to financial assistance for those who cannot afford to participate.

With that being said, it is a well-known fact that BMX in Australia is for everyone. From our youngest participants at two years old, to our 50+ shredders, BMX is a sport that fits many ages and abilities and welcomes people with their own unique stories like the members from the VSA.

Clubs will be a great way for veterans and their families to connect with the sport as they are renowned for making new members feel welcome.

To help veterans find their love for BMX, BMXA suggests that clubs hold their own specific Ride In2BMX events just like the club at Maitland Tenambit are doing this weekend!

The track located at Beryl Humble Sporting Complex in NSW will open its gates on Saturday, August 24, for individuals of all ages to give them a taste of BMX and what it feels like to be part of the community for FREE!
