Oak Creek's 2024 BMX Racing League for New Families

BMX Racing is an individual sport. Everyone rides, every time, regardless of how proficient or inexperienced. That is one of the key benefits most new families list when asked why they like the sport. “Nobody Rides the Bench in BMX Racing.”

The BMX Racing League allows new families to learn how the sport works & allows riders to progress gradually, riding only with other beginners. At this level, the focus is on fun, developing bike handling skills, spending quality family time, & meeting new friends.


About BMX Racing League

BMX Racing League is sanctioned by USA BMX and was established in 2018 to introduce new bike riders to the sport of BMX racing. This program is for new pedal-bike riders ages 4 and up who have never been on a race track before, and yes, even parents can participate.

In addition to all instruction & racing, each BMX Racing League season includes a league jersey, a number plate, access to loaner bikes and helmets, an end-of-the-season award, and a FULL one-year USA BMX membership to continue their BMX racing journey.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What's the difference between the BMX Racing League and Open Racing at the track?

There are two main differences between the league program and Open Racing:

  • BMX Racing League is strictly a beginners-only program. Existing racers are not eligible to participate.

  • In the league, participants sign up for a six week "season," which includes their very own instruction.

  • Open racing does not include private practice sessions, custom jersey or custom number plate.


2. How does BMX Racing League work?

BMX Racing League is designed to provide new families with all the tools, knowledge, and enjoyment they need to love our sport.


Participants enroll in a six-week "season," which includes four 2-hour sessions of instruction, in their very own beginners-only environment. The one-time, all-inclusive tuition provides league members a jersey, number plate, an end-of-the-season award, free use of loaner bikes and helmets, and a FULL one-year USA BMX membership to continue their BMX racing journey.


3. How often are the BMX Racing League seasons?

It is at the track's discretion when they will host a BMX Racing League and they can host up to 10 seasons a year. If you miss a season, do not fret and just be on the lookout for future seasons or for another track in your area.


4. What equipment does my rider need to participate?

Your rider needs a long sleeve shirt, long pants, and closed-toe shoes, come Week 2 they will be given their league jersey to wear the rest of the season. Helmets and bikes are encouraged but not required as you will have access to free loaner bikes and helmets, however they are on a first-come first-serve basis. Finally, a water jug to stay hydrated!


5. My child doesn't know how to ride a pedal bike, can s/he participate?

Unfortunately, the BMX Racing League curriculum is designed for riders who can ride a pedal bike. If your child cannot ride a bike, we recommend connecting with your local track to see if they offer Balance Bike practices or racing. Oak Creek offers both!


6. My rider has a USA BMX membership, can s/he participate in the League?

If your rider already has a USABMX membership, he/she may be able to participate in BMX Racing League if they have not competed in any races.


7. What happens if we have to miss one or more sessions in a season?

Life happens, so if you must miss a session due to sickness or other obligations, be advised that no "make-up" sessions are available.


8. What award will my rider receive?

All riders will be acknowledged upon completion of their season.

  • Podium Award - Given to the top 3 riders (by points) in each racing class.

  • Progression Award - Given to all others to recognize the dedication and effort they put forth on the track.
