    All Club's wishing to host a Bronze Level Event must complete the Application Form - BMX Bronze Level Events. Applications should be submitted at least six (6) weeks prior to the commencement of the event, unless exempted by AusCycling.

    An initial application period will take place for Bronze Level Events each year after the confirmation of the calendar of International, Platinum, Gold and Silver level events.

    AusCycling will review all applications submitted during this initial application period and where more than one (1) club from the same region are seeking to host on the same date the following process will be used to determine priority:

    • The BMX Date Protection Table
    • Historical Dates: Any club who has hosted previously on the date provided will be provided priority.
    • AusCycling Assessment: Assessment of AusCycling based on other events in the calendar.

    After the close of the initial application period, a club can still apply to host a Bronze Level Event at any time, with events allocated on a first come, first served basis.

    Upon submission of your application, you will receive a confirmation email containing a submission receipt. Upon approval, you will receive an invoice, endorsement letter and certificate of currency confirming your insurance coverage. This certificate of currency is only valid if your invoice is paid in full.
