BMXA COACHING RATIOS​

BMXA and its accredited coaches have a duty of care to make sure the size of our coaching groups are safe. A BMXA accredited coach must adhere to a ratio of 1:12, meaning 1 coach cannot have more than 12 riders in a coaching session.

Coaching outside of this ratio will void your BMXA insurance coverage.

PLEASE REMEMBER:

  • BMXA recommends a minimum of three riders in a coaching session, to ensure insurance applies and the session cannot be considered a private coaching session outside of BMXA’s coaching insurance coverage.
  • When coaching under-18 riders and in conjunction with BMX Australia’s Coach’s Code of Behaviour: ‘avoid unaccompanied and unobserved activities with any person under 18 years of age, wherever possible’.
  • Coach in a traffic free environment or a suitable BMX Track, or part thereof, for the capability of riders in your coaching session.
