Our club is a non profit amateur sport association and our continued success is linked directly to our great volunteer base. An organization such as this can only be successful by the commitment and dedication of our volunteers. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator for more information.
Everything you see at the track right from our officials, coaches, registration, concession, and so on is completely run by volunteers. With a facility such as Airdrie BMX there are countless hours spent maintaining our track and facilities, event organization, and general club operations that are solely run on a volunteer basis.
Unlike many other amateur sporting organizations, Airdrie BMX does not collect a fee at the beginning of the season that can be worked off through volunteer hours. We prefer to have volunteers that feel like that they are part of the club and volunteer because they want to see the club succeed and be an integral part of their child’s or their own amateur sport experience.
Volunteering at Airdrie BMX is not an exclusive club within a club. We welcome and encourage anyone at anytime that is willing to donate their time to the club. Any volunteering no matter how big or small is very much appreciated and your generous donation of time and effort is what will continue to make Airdrie BMX a great club to be a part of.
Volunteers are essential to Airdrie BMX and are needed for every district race in Airdrie. Each race night there will be a sign-up sheet on the Moto Board for the positions required to make the race possible. Races can not take place unless all positions are filled. Positions required per race are:
First Aid (1) – Holds a valid First Aid/CPR certificate.
Track Volunteers (8) – Watches riders for crashes, waters the track etc.
Staging (2) – Helps get the riders into the gate.
Finish Line (3-5) – Records the plate numbers & place as riders finish.
Announcer (1) – Commentates throughout the race.
Bike Shed (1) – Helps distribute bikes at beginning of night and puts away at the end of the night.
Concession (2) – volunteers must be 18 years and older to prepare & sell food/beverages.
If you are interested in learning any of these positions or in helping out in Registration (moto building), please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, or inquire at the Registration window. Training is available at the track for anyone willing to participate.
Getting involved is a great way to meet new people and great way to spend the time.
Some positions also give you a front row seat to watch your child race.
