Please see below a statement regarding COVID-19 and the BMXA Nationals.
BMX Australia are aware of Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s statement regarding non-essential public gatherings of more than 500 people.
With this new information we have no choice but to postpone the National Championships and Oceania Championships in Launceston.
All entry fees will be refunded during the course of the next 7-10 days.
We are currently working very hard with relevant stakeholders regarding plans for the future staging of events, with an aim towards the last quarter of the year, and intend to provide an update early next week.
We also strongly recommend that all BMX State associations and Clubs adhere to the ban around mass gatherings and consider all Government direction in their State.
For those intending on smaller gatherings we ask that you practice high levels of hygiene health (washing hands, use hand sanitiser etc) which are widely considered by health experts to be key to disease prevention and management. We also ask that we avoid physical contact (e.g. shaking hands in medal presentations, sharing microphones for commentators).
We ask that the BMXA community remains patient during this complicated and unprecedented process.
