Come And Try Bmx Session CS Lewis Square

Thanks to all who attended our “come and try bmx” session.... the weather was pretty grim but smiles (and the sweeties) all round made it worthwhile !
In conjunction with Belfast City Council, the event was aimed at anyone aged 4 and up to give them a taster as to what BMX racing is all about.
We had bikes, helmets, cones and some jumps to try out and our coaches were there to run through some basic skills.
There was something for everyone, regardless if you’re just off your stabilisers or if you’re a seasoned cyclist,
To celebrate our come
 and try BMX event we teamed up with Thunder Park to offer the chance for you and 4 of your mates to win a BMX coaching experience at Thunder park (worth £100).

Conditions were more tricky than you would hope for at any BMX race, but all races were held, albeit between the “four seasons “and went off with little drama!
Well done to everyone who took part, you now can say you raced in hail stones & ❄️ snow!! 
Some great racing, and great to see so many under 12s at such an event !

Belfast City Bmx Club is now a Registered CASC

What is a CASC? its a Community Amateur Sports Club. More red tape? yes this is another hoop that clubs have to jump through, but a legal requirement for all clubs to register as a Charity or CASC. This is to help regulate clubs and does have an added benefit that you can claim Tax Relief when donating or sponsoring us.
However this was an area that is hard to get advice on with sport NI and Belfast City Council all dodging the subject to help us make the move. Despite giving advice seminars nobody wants to tell you whether its better to become a charity or CASC. We just had to take the plunge with an educated guess.

The conditions were no problem to us as its main conditions are exactly what Belfast City Bmx Club stand for. as set out in our club constitution
Be open to the whole community;
Be organised on an amateur basis; and
Have as its main purpose providing facilities for, and promoting participation in one or more eligible sports.

Once we made the
move to become a CASC it was in the hands of HMRC, again jumping through more hoops. Eventually after many, many phone calls we got it sorted.

We are 1 of only 4 cycle clubs and only 288 clubs in Northern Ireland that have so far been approved. 

The all important Number = Our CASC number is CH11736
