Each club in the Region has access to accredited Level 2 BMX coaches and run club based coaching sessions tailored to each club’s specific needs whilst all being based around the British Cycling Coaching Pathway which could take riders right up to Olympic level.

The first step on the pathway in our region is the BMX East Talent Development Centre and if you have ever wondered what a BMX East talent development centre session is? Who is eligible to sign up? What you need to do? Who runs it? Where is it? Then check out the video by the regions Lead Coach for a full review of how riders can get involved with the programme and become the best rider they aspire to be.

The Development Centre Coaching sessions will be back running with session 1 on 16th May 2021 at Braintree.

The sessions are open to all East Club members who have completed a full regional series (minimum 5 rounds) or can demonstrate an appropriate level of riding.

Session 1 – Race age 13-16 year olds

Session 2 – Race age 8-12 year olds

The sessions will be open to riders from all clubs regardless of venue and will include flat skills, track work, give advice on goal setting, bike set up and individual feedback on what each rider needs to work on for their personal development plan.

The sessions will be lead by Julian Allen (Jools) from XLR8 Bike School/Braintree BMX Club in partnership with the coaches from around the region.

Riders will benefit from attending all the sessions to build their personal development plan for the season ahead and to improve their skill sets and racing strategies.

Development Centre sessions form the basis for the RSR selection and riders who have been selected for the RSR and NSR should still attend Development Centre sessions.
