Podcast: T-Hoff on Freewheel Project Camp

August 8, 2014 by  

Tony Hoffman with the 2014 Freewheel Project Summer Camp

In our 99th episode of the Announcers Tower Podcast, we welcome Tony Hoffman back to the show to talk about the 2014 Freewheel Project Summer Camp. The eight-week session ended earlier this week with a graduation ceremony that awarded 96 Haro ZX/20 BMX Bikes to graduates.

In this interview, Tony talks about the three prongs of The Freewheel Project: Time on the BMX track, leadership and personal finance. We also discuss what happens with the campers’ BMX participation after the eight weeks are up.

Some stick around, but most don’t for a variety of reasons, but Tony cited the maintenance costs (getting to the track, weekly entry fees, etc) as one of the barriers he has seen that keep camp graduates from a longer time on the track. One bit of news that came in after we recorded the interview was that four of his grads from this year have already signed up for a USA BMX membership, and are moving into the Novice class at Woodward Park in Fresno (where the camp is held each year).

Tony also talks about the next Freewheel Project initiatives, and about his growing coaching program for performance BMXers.
