On the day, along with the rider and bike, you will need to bring the following equipment:

Helmet (Approved by MA Check here for approved standards) | Gloves | Goggles | Long pants | Long sleeve shirt |
We recommend Elbow and Knee Guards are used by all riders | Motorcycle boots (enclosed covering 3/4 of lower leg covered) | You will need Body Armour to ride once you have a license | You will also need to make sure your bike is prepared to pass scrutineering.
Scrutineering is where your bike will be checked and Okayed to ride that day.

On the day of your Kickstart

Arrive at the venue at the allocated time. Introduce yourself to the race secretary at the sign-on desk and start your paperwork.

Purchase a Junior Training Permit = $30 per rider and is valid for three months. This is a one off fee and covers the junior training program. This is a mandatory program that all children must undertake prior to being able to apply to MNSW for competition license. The program is designed to ensure the children have good control of their bike before being able to compete. In a nutshell it covers such things as:


Club Rules/Riding Rules

Cornering Jumps

Bike Scrutineering

Hill Climbs

Bike Controls And Operations

Different Riding Terrains

Braking

Starts


Body Positioning


MNSW Rules

– The minimum duration of the course is one day, and there is no maximum, though an additional training permit would need to be purchased after the first three months.

– Join your coach to begin the training program.

– At the successful completion of the practical training program, you will be required to undertake a written test. (Mum and Dad can help the younger ones). Once you have successfully completed this test, you are then able to apply to MNSW for a competition license.

– The MNSW license application form details all documents that needs to be forwarded to MNSW to obtain the license (photo, birth certificate….)

– Once your child has received their license from MNSW they are then free to join their competition group at the next club points day.

First Aid

At our club safety is of utmost importance. Thus we try to provide a safe environment at all times. This is another reason why club rules must be obeyed at all times. At every ride day we always have qualified first aid there to ensure that any rider that is hurt, no matter how small, can be attended to professionally and immediately.

Free 1pm to 4pm

Each point’s day after everyone has finished his or her events we have free time. This is when the rider may practice his/her events or their Minicross. This time ends at approx. 4:00pm when First Aid leaves the club. This is a good time to have some fun and relax. Always remember the marshalling rules apply in free time especially on the Minicross tracks. We still need parents out their helping, to ensure safety throughout the day
