BMX Race Training Camp

THE PROGRAM

 

The Best in the Business

Designed and Managed by USA BMX Coaching Director Justin Travis

Justin has been coaching BMX Racing for 13 years.  Starting out "On Tour" with the legendary Stile Industries Summer Tours featuring the famous Battle Van and Limo, Justin went on to become a successful Track Operator at a top 10 track by developing mentorship programs for new riders and later working at the NBL and now at USA BMX as the Director of Coaching Education.  

Justin designed and manages the USA BMX coaching certification and First 10 Weeks new riders programs.  His energy is contagious and his motivation keeps us all going. His knowledge of BMX Racing and his ability to inspire confidence in riders of all skill levels is why he is simply one of the best coaches to work with our campers.  

Justin is a father to an 8 year old daughter, has been a pre-school teacher and currently coaches Skydiving and Snowboarding in the off-camp Season.

Racing can be serious business and we take that business seriously. Our passion is making athletes better and our facilities, staff and programming is second to no one.

Our race program is built from the ground up to personally work with each camper one on one to improve their skills, confidence and track speed so they can bring home more trophies and less excuses. Our race program is built so racers enjoy working hard and leave feeling not only accomplished but driven to continue training at home with the tools they learned at camp.  

At the end of each week not only are parents invited to return for a special parents night, but they will get a report card and a tour of the facilities with their campers and coaches so they can see for themselves exactly what their child has learned and what they need to continue to do.

 

THE TYPICAL DAY


Campers have a full schedule each day that includes four and half hours of actual instruction/training mixed in with the right amount of hydration breaks, meals and rest each day.  We follow the same schedule each day so campers not only know where they need to be but so they can accurately improve on each skill daily instead of cramming it all in at once.  Please view the BMX Race Daily Schedule page for a detailed breakdown of each day your child is at camp. 

BUILDING THE COMPLETE ATHLETE


The Race program at Ohio Dreams focuses on more than just creating tomorrow fastest riders, we are building the core of tomorrow’s leaders. Our daily lesson programs not only focus on nutrition, hydration, and training but the importance of self confidence, leadership and community values that will grow the athlete as a person who will inspire others to follow their example.

TRAIN HARD


We are parents too, and we want to see your campers succeed just as much as you want too.  The best part about BMX camp is that we already race because we think it's fun, so the fun is naturally built in and we can focus on the work part, the repetitive part, the part that hones our skills, builds our confidence and makes us better racers.
