A friendly reminder to the BMXA community to participate in the sport the right way. Respect it and everyone in it.

COVER PIC: Get Snapt

Over the past couple of days, BMXA have released articles regarding the importance of BMX and the clubs that are instrumental in building that community spirit. Through the help of BMX, individuals with needs have found salvation through the sport and met life-long friends at the same time.

While the sport can have a positive existence for members, there are also times when it can have the opposite effect and turn people away.

With that in mind, it’s never a bad time to prompt members on the importance of respecting the sport and those within it.

Every time a BMXA member signs up or renews their membership, they are also agreeing to the BMXA’s Code of Conduct. The purpose of the code is to initiate the type of behaviour BMXA is seeking to promote and encourage its members and supporters to adopt.

Encouragement, respect and courtesy – the simple acts of kindness to help make the sporting environment a better place. Actions such as damaging another person’s property, the encouragement of banned substances and statements that are deemed unworthy and offensive (to name a few) have no place on a BMX track.

To help you understand why it is so important to abide by BMXA’s code of conduct, take a look at the Play by the Rules article below. It may be about football… but the underlying message is still clear and can still be reciprocated by the BMXA family.

Alongside monitoring your behaviour trackside, why not take a look at BMXA’s Social Media Policy? Read – HERE

If you have witnessed or been a part of another member breaching the Code of Conduct, there is a process within the policy HERE that helps guide you through who to contact.

Let’s stamp out the negative behaviour that occurs on and off the track and continue to strive towards a better, more welcoming environment. We are family after all.
