YMCA "BMX Pro for a Week" Summer Camp Edit

In celebration of our second year of, “BMX Pro for a Week”, summer camp through a cooperative adventure with the YMCA of San Diego County – we had a new edit done to show you first-hand a day in the life of our campers. We cover bike and street safety, the importance of wearing protective gear, why leading a healthful lifestyle is important both on and off the track and the fundamentals of BMX Racing. Our ultimate goal is to introduce the sport of BMX racing to more kids and to excite those already interested in getting more involved. We’ve been grateful for the support of our sponsors and also for the support of USABMX. Check it out.

Check out our recent edit from our, “BMX Pro for a Week” summer camp program in cooperation with the YMCA of San Diego County with the Chase/DHR Team.

Thanks to Barona Resort & Casino for their continued and increased support allowing for an expansion of our Ride to End Obesity Program into San Diego Unified School District through an after school partnership with the YMCA of San Diego.  2015 is looking very positive and we remain excited to grow every facet of our team.

BMX Pro for a Week Summer Camp

This past week we ran another week of our BMX Pro for a Week Summer Camp in cooperation with the YMCA. Many of our kids haven’t ever ridden on a real BMX track and few have had a lot of bike time. It was cool to start at Level 1 (with bike safety, protective gear, basic riding skills) and move progressively into more technical skills. By the end of the week, our kids were ready to jump on the gate and race one another. It was great to see.

It occurred to our team that we are amongst the new generation of riders – just not fortunate enough to have access to either bikes or tracks. This camp was a great bridge for kids wanting to be connected to the BMX industry. We’re happy to do our part to get more kids exposed and more involved in the sport.

At the week’s end, our rider, Jesse, earned himself a new bike and gear for paying attention and giving each day his all. What a great experience it was for our entire team to partner with the Y. We look forward to seeing these guys/gals again at our Winter Session camps (dates to be announced soon).

BMX Pro for a Week

This past week we held our season opener of “BMX Pro for a Week”, our summer camp experience offered through a partnership with both the Toby Wells & Mission Valley YMCA facilities. Our goal has been to reach out to kids not currently in the BMX circle to get them excited about the sport of BMX. While, some of our campers have been to BMX tracks before – most have not and enjoy learning what BMX Racing is all about.

By the week’s end, these kids are able to make full laps at both stops: Kearny Moto Park and Chula Vista BMX (at the Olympic Training Center). Several of our campers were actually participants in our Ride to End Obesity Program. In fact, Victoria was one of these kids We taught her how to ride a bike just 8 weeks ago and she actually rode the track. It’s exciting to be able to give back and make a difference in the lives of kids that otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford to participate.

Victoria left campFriday with a new bike, jersey and helmet – thanks to our sponsors! This is what BMX is all about. These kids are excited to continue with the sport and try their hand at racing. A big shout out to ChaseBMX, StayStrong, Walmart, BaronaCasino, VeeTireco, GoliathFinancial, ANSR, Shimano, WearsRobJames, ODIGrips, KICKER, StealthHubs, KMCChain, & GForm for making this possible.
