The legendary Camp Woodward has inked a new deal with USA BMX. The reincarnated program from Woodward is a major pulse of great news for the BMX racing community.  The new program is slated to kick off for their first camp at the Woodward Pennsylvania location later this summer. Part of the new deal with USA BMX will include the sanctioning body building a world class track for the program to utilize. Track building legend and USA BMX director of new track development Lance Maguire will spearhead the project.

 

 

 

 

South Lake Tahoe BMX Track Director and long time Camp Woodward partner Jason Toutolmin will be coming on as the race camp director. Jason had this to say about his new role, “I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Woodward on the reintroduction of their BMX racing camp. I have been working closely with them on making this happen for quite some time now and we are stoked to be bringing it back for racers around the country. There won’t be a better place to send your young racer to ride and enhance their skills this summer!”

 

The program will be a fully inclusive week long camp and will include guest coaches. Racers of all levels will have something to learn as the camp covers the entire gamut of both on and off track necessities for racers. Gear, bike maintenance, turns, gates, rhythms, jumping, bar banging – you will learn it all and increase your current skills to another level. During the week long stay, riders are also going to have access to all of the other rad amenities that come with a week at Woodward – including the dirt jumps and legendary foam pit!

"BMX racing is a natural fit with Woodward's action and lifestyle sports programming, and a great complement to our existing BMX camps," says Jody Churich, EVP and COO of Woodward. "Each of our programs, facilities and handpicked coaches across the country are designed and selected to inspire and mentor kids through sport and culture. Like USA BMX, we are dedicated to enabling greatness in athletes of all ages and abilities, and this includes those who are training for regional or national competitive events, or one day the Olympics."

 

In addition, USA BMX CEO BA Anderson stated, “We could not be more excited to partner with the world’s premier sports camp. Offering a BMX racing program to a wide audience of young kids is our priority, and by partnering with Camp Woodward, we are exposing the sport to entirely new demographic of kids.”

Another major bonus is for current USA BMX members. If you currently hold an active membership and register for camp prior to June 1st, you will earn a steep $200 discount off of your registration fee. Register between June 1 and August 25th and you will earn a $100 registration discount. Here are the dates of the four week long camps that will be offered in 2018…
