Introduction to Manly Warringah BMX Club
Manly Warringah BMX Club is a family oriented sporting club that is open to all ages and abilities where the primary tenants are to:
- Have fun
- Learn new bike skills
- Develop an appreciation for healthy competition
We hold coaching sessions on Tuesdays nights and ‘gates’ training every Thursday. Club races are on Saturdays, generally twice per month and every year we hold the Manly Warringah BMX Open Event which generally attracts upward of 400 entrants and over 700 attendees. The club operates 11 months of the year, taking a break over the Christmas / New Year period.
Our Mission Statement
“Promote the development of the sport of BMX Racing and its values throughout the Northern Beaches and North Shore from beginner up to Olympic level”
Our Club Values
- Respect of others
- Dedication and commitment
- Heath and lifestyle
- Community and Education
The Manly Warringah BMX Club is one of the oldest BMX clubs in Australia and was the set for the legendary movie “BMX Bandits” starring Nicole Kidman. Although its location has changed since its first inception, the club has had a home in Terrey Hills for more than 20 years.
Despite the fun oriented reputation of the club many successful riders come out of its ranks including current World Champion Brett Scruse past World #4 Zac Webb. Manly Warringah riders feature regularly at the highest level of competition on a state, national and international level, but we never forget that the most important thing is to have fun!
Our squad recently returned from the 2018 National and Oceania Championships held in Bunbury, Western Australia bringing back several trophies and awards, proving the dedication and talent of riders both young and old.
Our track located in Terrey Hills at the JJ Melbourne Memorial Reserve. This amazing community facility is fully maintained by volunteers from the Club with the support of the Northern Beaches Council and is open for public use at all times when it isn’t being used by the club.
The track had a major upgrade in 2016 thanks to a funding grant from the local council and a lot of hard work and dedication of Club members. As a result, the entire BMX community now recognises the Manly Warringah BMX Club as one of the best tracks in NSW and the communities of the Northern Beaches and the North Shore now has a top class facility for all to enjoy.
A 2018 funding grant, driven by the Club and supported by Northern Beaches Council, sees another addition to the club’s infrastructure in the form of an all-weather “pump track” which is being built right now and due for completion in June 2018. Currently under construction, this new addition will enable even greater use by the public and has already created a massive wave of enthusiasm throughout the BMX, mountain bike and local community.
What is BMX?
BMX (Bicycle Moto Cross) is one of the fastest growing sports in Australia and one of the only sports where the entire family (riders from 2 to 50+) can participate together and compete at the same events.
The sport of BMX racing ranges from Club level right through to State, National and World Championship and also the Olympics!
BMX is not only a sport for boys and dads, girls and mums race and enjoy competition in their own age groups with other females. BMX is a family sport where great friendships can be made and the competition structure gives the opportunity to visit many new places, strengthening the family unit.
