The Level 2 BMX Coaching Course has been developed by BMX Australia. BMX Australia is recognised by the Australian Sports Commission as the National Sporting Organisation for the sport of BMX in Australia.
The Level 2 coaching course, which includes 8m hill coaching accreditation, provides coaches with opportunities to learn, to study and be assessed for both the theoretical and practical aspects of coaching elite BMX riders.
The Level 2 BMX is a coaching course where the aim of the coach is to develop and support higher performing riders who are competing at the national championships and internationally. The rider will be at the Racing to WIN development stage and a coach at this level has the underpinning knowledge for coaching an emerging elite young athlete who seeks to represent Australia at junior or elite BMX national and international events.
The coaching course provides in-depth information on the physiology and physiological assessment, performance monitoring and assessment, sports psychology in BMX, advanced racing skills and race preparation, and recovery and crisis management of the injured rider.
It includes accreditation to coach off an 8m Hill.
The Level 2 BMXA Coaching Course is currently under review.
