The Cochrane BMX Association
It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Cochrane BMX Association. We are a non‐profit 100% volunteer managed sports organization that was established in 1999. The Cochrane BMX Association operates a sanctioned BMX racetrack serving Cochrane, Calgary and the surrounding areas.
We are very proud of our rapidly growing membership of 150 members ranging from 4‐55 years of age with the majority of our membership being 12 and under.
Cochrane BMX race nights are Monday's and Wednesday's with the track opening at 6:00 p.m. and races starting at 7:00 p.m. Coaching nights are Tuesdays during the summer months and on Saturday's during the summer we run open track riding from 09:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and always check the calendar for up to date times.
