Biathlon Programs

Our Youth Biathlon Programs run as a fully integrated addition to the Track Attack and Junior Development programs.  When you enroll your child in a Biathlon Program, you must also enroll in the age-equivalent XC Ski Program. Attending Biathlon range sessions only is NOT an option. A wide variety of games/drills and friendly competitions are used to create a dynamic team environment and instill a lifelong interest in this sport.

Our Goals

  • Provide a fun, action-packed Biathlon experience.
  • Promote the development of healthy competition and training patterns.
  • Improve skiing efficiency and continue to develop physical literacy skills on skis and on foot.
  • Teach the safe and responsible handling of a biathlon rifle and ammunition.
  • Develop the skills and focus required to become a proficient target shooter in biathlon.
