Description

Come on out to Imagination Glen BMX in Portage on Saturday, August 24, 2019 for a FREE open house, especially for new families, to learn about and experience the sport of BMX Racing. The event runs 10:00AM-11:30AM

Our Beginners-only Late-Summer 2019 League starts Saturday, September 7 (10AM-1PM), and runs for five weeks. This is the perfect opportunity to learn about the sport, and get in on an activity that is all-about fun, fitness and family. For more info on the League, or to enroll, visit: indianabmxleague.com

The Open House is open to boys and girls 4-15 years, and moms, dads and grandparents of riders. A “Beginner” is someone who has never raced BMX outside of the League program.

Here’s a rundown of how the day will be structured:


For Riders

A “roll-around” on the Imagination Glen track, supervised by our league coach and on-track volunteers, giving them some hands-on fun on a bike.


For Parents

A “walk-around” of the facility and the various “stations” of the BMX track (moto boards, pre-staging area, staging chutes, starting gate and the track, itself). Then a briefing on how the League format works.


For the Whole Family

-A welcome message from Indiana BMX League staff.

-Firsthand stories from BMX families on what the sport of BMX Racing has done for them.

-Group and personal Q&A time to answer all your questions.


What to Bring/What to Wear for Riders

- Long pants, long sleeves, "gym" shoes

- A bike without reflectors, chain guard and/or pegs. (free loaners available if you don't have a bike)

- A helmet (free loaners available if you don't have one)


**IMPORTANT**

Riders must be able to ride a pedal bike without training wheels to participate. We offer a "Strider" program for kids that are not-yet riding a pedal bike on Saturday nights, but it is not part of the League program.


Get the kids off the couch and on a bike! Race BMX...America's fastest-growing family sport!


Create one ticket per RIDER. Family members not riding do not need a ticket.
