  • 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

As you may know Okotoks BMX is organizing a charity/fundraising golf tournament with 50% of the proceeds being donated to KidSport and the other 50% going directly to the maintenance and build of our 2015 track - be it in our current location, or a new location - wherever we are able to obtain permanent land.

As you all know - our track is 100% funded and maintained by our volunteers, board members and many other gracious citizens of this fine area.

It is fundraisers like this that allow us to run the club and maintain the track, but most importantly keep the membership costs as low as they are; so all levels of participation is greatly appreciated.

We are almost 75% sold, we have 14 team spots of 4 left ranging from $1300 Bronze, $1350 Silver, $1500 Gold and $1600 platinum team sponsorships, so act quickly so you don't miss out on the best dang golf tournament of the summer! All golfers will receive lunch/dinner/green fees/cart fees and prize after prize after prize! As well some crazy, and I mean CRAZY silent auction items!

Unfortunately we have all sold out of the $200 individual spots as add-ons to those that have sponsored already, Wonderful!! So your only in is at the sponsorship level now!

We are also looking for volunteers on the day of (we will need about 10 more ppl) this will go towards your volunteer shifts, as well we are looking for silent auction items and prize donations.
