BMXA COACHING RATIOS
A BMXA accredited coach must adhere to the following ratio of riders in a coaching group to have their coaching sessions meet the duty of care requirements to be covered by BMXA insurance.
Beginner BMX Coach:
- Ratio 1:12
- This means I coach can have up to 12 riders in their coaching session. If there are more than 12 riders, another coach is required.
- BMXA recommends a minimum of three riders in a coaching session, to ensure the session cannot be considered a private coaching session.
- 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 for the capability of riders present.
