Safety @ The Village
At The Village, your safety is always our first priority!
The Village is an action sports facility where injuries can happen. Like all sports, participants need to decide if the benefits of riding are worth the risk of injury. BMX, Scooters, Skateboarding creates the risk for potential injury even when being safe. The potential for injury is greatly reduced when you:
1. We recommend the use appropriate safety gear at all times – this may include knee guards, wrist guards, elbow guards, gloves, ankle braces and an Australian Certified Helmet (the use of a helmet is compulsory, but it may be a non-certified one).
2. Do not stand, stop or sit at the bottom of a ramp under any circumstances. The ramps in the park are all tall and someone approaching from the other side may not see you.
3. Do not stand, stop or sit within 1m of the coping – this may interfere with other riders in the park.
4. Always look around you before dropping in to make sure the coast is clear.
5. Never drop in while another participant is using the park
