About / Volunteer

It's only as GREAT as we can make it!

Simply put, our club could not exist year after year without drawing upon the support and talents of our wonderfully diverse membership. Outside of some select coaching team members, there are no paid positions or hired personnel at Calgary BMX Racing. Every aspect of the track upkeep and the successful execution of our racing events are 100% organized, managed and done through volunteer efforts.

As "many hands make light work", our Volunteer Agreement Program is in place to encourage participation from all willing and able members and their families to assist with all aspects of the club operations. Help is always needed and greatly appreciated in many areas including:

Cooking/Barbecue

Concession Help

First Aid Attendants

Track Officiating

Staging

Finish Line

Track Maintenance

Work Party Volunteers

50/50 Ticket Sales

Never be too shy to ask. Please see any of the Calgary BMX Racing Executive Team, or contact our This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The Club Bingo Credit Assistance Program

In addition to helping out at the track, Calgary BMX Racing members also regularly volunteer at The Five Star Bingo Hall.

You can earn Club Bingo Credits to help offset the costs of participating in BMX Racing by volunteering to work at the bingos. Volunteers who participate at a bingo get equal credits, with one share going to Calgary BMX Racing. Club Bingo Credits are like cash and can be used to pay enrollment fees, race fees, training camps and all out of town travel expenses such as hotels, gas, and meals.

For any questions regarding the bingos or the Club Bingo Credit Assistance Program, please contact the This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it directly or any member of the Calgary BMX Racing Executive Team .
