Several initiatives have been implemented to grow grass roots and broaden our membership base:
- Victorian Schools Cycling Championship
- 4 month license membership scheme
- National Sign On Day
- Mini Wheeler Class
BMX Victoria is addressing rider development to provide progressive competition so every participant is able to achieve their potential. Improvements will be introduced into 2014 BMX Victoria Junior State Series.
