Club Summer Biathlon Camp 3
Our club summer biathlon camps are for athletes born in 2004 and older whose primary winter sport is biathlon. The program involves rollerskiing, shooting, and a variety of ski-specific and general activities which keep training fun and challenging.
The purpose of our summer camps is to set athletes up for a successful season by developing skiing and shooting skills, and by training for speed and endurance.
At least one season of prior shooting and skate skiing experience is required for our club summer biathlon camps. Exceptions may be granted for advanced cross country skiers without shooting experience who are interested in joining the club biathlon team this winter.
All participants in our biathlon camps and programs must be registered participants with Biathlon Canada or US Biathlon.
If you have any questions about your eligibility for our club summer biathlon camps please contact Clay Whitman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
