BMX is a summer sport, with the main club and racing season running from Oct - April. This is also the main membership period for our club. Membership fees are due from 1st October each year.
Members are also welcome to use the track during the winter months, as long as the track is firm and dry, and the "track closed" signs are not up.
BMXNZ Affiliation: We are affiliated to BMX New Zealand, therefore ALL members must also hold a BMX NZ licence.
BMXNZ Race Licence: BMXNZ Race licences cover a calendar year, whereas the MTR club membership runs from 1Oct - 30 Sep (This is a common source of confusion for new members, so please ask if you need clarification). This is to ensure yourmembership runs for the current season.
