TA Biathlon – Biathlon Bears



Our Track Attack Biathlon Program runs as a fully integrated addition to our Track Attack Cross Country Programs.

Track Attack Biathlon is for participants aged 10-12. The emphasis will be on ‘Learning to Train’ through ski and target shooting skill development, fitness, and teamwork. The majority of the ski-based skills you learn will be built during your Track Attack ski sessions.

Program Focus:

  • Nurture a team/social atmosphere.
  • Improve target shooting and ski technique through practice and the detection & correction of skills from our qualified coaches both on the trails and at the range.
  • Learn through games, relays, racing, and terrain parks to develop technique, speed, skills, and fitness.
  • Continue to develop confidence and safe rifle-handling skills.
  • Learn to ski safely in a wide variety of conditions & terrain.
  • Begin to build fitness on skis.
  • Learn how to enjoy the process of competition and encourage participation in Biathlon and Cross-Country Ski races.

If you have any questions about the Biathlon Program please reach out to the Biathlon Head Coach Eric at [email protected]

Eric Schryer – Biathlon Lead Coach 

Hailing from Sudbury, Ontario, Eric began his journey in skiing and biathlon by striding and gliding around his property with his parents. After discovering biathlon he patiently waited until he was old enough and then began learning to shoot in his local air rifle biathlon program. This quickly evolved to teaching himself how to shoot .22 rifles with a small group of athletes. After racing domestically, Eric was quickly scooped up by the coaching world. Eric began coaching with the Chelsea Nordiq ski & biathlon club. Along with leading this talented group of biathletes, Eric coached at the 2019 Canada Winter Games, and a multitude of Jr. IBU cups, IBU cups, and World Youth / Junior Championships with Team Canada. Eric is a member of Biathlon Canada’s Domestic Committee and is continuing his education in the field of psychology.
