  • 5 of the clubs original members were on hand to have their picture taken with former world champion USA rider Bubba Harris who provided the ceremonial first drop of the new Pro-Gate “Safe gate” which was a first in Canada at the time.

  • One of our younger riders taking advantage of the indoor track in Olds. Remeber that you have to be registered with a club and have a valid 2013 ABA licence to ride in Olds.

  • A family that rides together, AB's together. Here we have coach Marco with his kids all proudly displaying their newly won AB plates from the Medicine Hat provincial championships!

  • It is very important to make sure your bike and gear fit you properly! If it doesn’t, you compromise your safety..and it kinda looks funny don’t you think?

  • A blast from the past from the 2006 Cochrane BMX provincial that moved to Morley Indoor due to Tornado warnings and torrential rain! It’s pretty neat to go back in time to see these Okotoks riders when they were younger..Can you name them all?

  • What better way to keep from going in 4 different directions? Go in the same direction! The Kroon family is a dedicated bunch and a huge part of Okotoks BMX! Click Here for a great story by the Western Wheel.

Okotoks BMX/Kidsport Golf Tourny

Hey Everyone

With all our warm weather, why not get going on your 2015 summer golf plans?

2nd ANNUAL OKOTOKS BMX/KIDSPORT GOLF TOURNEY AFTERNOON OF MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2015 AT D’ARCY RANCH GOLF COURSE

Click on the Okotoks BMX Golf Ball above for your link to the 2nd Annual Okotoks BMX/KidSport Charity Fundraising sponsorship and registration information.

As you may have all noticed, we are knee deep in our plan to build the new track – goal is to be ready to roll for May 2015 beginning of the season!! Lots and lots of bucks required to get this track and area completed throughout the summer, and as most know Okotoks BMX is 100% volunteer run and funded – one of the biggest chunks to pay for this sweet new track is our Golf Tourney! We are set to TRIPLE proceeds raised last year and 25% will be donated directly to KidSport Okotoks! We all win!

Here is a show of how much fun all had last year – before our registration package was even prepared and finalized we are now already 20% filled!! Crazy!! So get it now while spots still available!

There are also many other ways to contribute to the success of this tournament if not wanting to golf or able to sponsor at one of the levels. - Silent Auction Items - Prizes for tourney - Booze bottle donations for the Booze Barrel draw - Purchase/Sell raffle tix for the Rockstar 4somes (we will be doing 4 this year and all proceeds of these raffle tix go directly to the club – that is $4800 straight into our pockets right there! - Volunteer on day of event

LOTS AND LOTS OF OPPORTUNITIES TO GET YOUR REQUIRED VOLUNTEER CREDITS FILLED BEFORE THE SEASON EVEN STARTS!!

Please contact one of our golf committee members this year for any information on the above.
