September 2019 Update – Volunteer Coaches Needed!
The capacity of our biathlon programs is limited by the number of NCCP certified skiing and shooting coaches we have. We are currently recruiting coaches to increase the capacity of our Biathlon Bears and Development Team programs. NCCP coaching courses and technical training are provided by local facilitators. Parents who coach are guaranteed spots in our programs for their children! If you are interested in becoming a coach for our biathlon program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Biathlon Bears is a three-level progressive skill development program that teaches the basic skills of biathlon in a safe and fun environment through a combination of drills, games and relays. The goal of the program is to build confidence and develop skiing skills, to introduce shooting skills, and to provide a fun introduction to an active, outdoor sport-for-life.
Our Development Team is a race program for experienced skiers who are passionate about Biathlon and consider it their primary winter sport activity. This program combines the development of skiing and shooting skills with a focus on training and racing. Athletes on our Development Team will receive training plans created by our coaches, who will also monitor the athletes progress with their training plan. The program is divided into two groups: a Junior Development program for athletes who will be competing in the Junior Boys/Girls category, and a Senior Development program for athletes who will be competing in the Senior Boys/Girls or Youth Men/Women categories.
This program is an alternative to our Development Team for teens who want to continue in the sport of biathlon on a recreational basis and to begin to develop coaching and officiating skills.
This program will involve skiing and shooting, while assisting club coaches with sessions for the Biathlon Bears. The program will also involve helping officiate at biathlon events hosted in Whistler.
The goal of the program is to continue to engage teenagers to be active through the sport of biathlon, while encouraging them to develop coaching and officiating skills by assisting club coaches and officials. This program can be used for volunteer hours required for school programs and certification options for coaching and officiating are available through the program as well.
Our Masters Biathlon program is a competition-focused training program for experienced biathletes ages 19 and older. The program is structured to optimize performance in provincial and regional biathlon competitions.
Our recreational biathlon program is designed to introduce new participants to the sport of biathlon, and to provide an opportunity a fun biathlon experience for recreational and novice biathletes. This program also provides a pathway to our Masters Biathlon program for new participants in the sport.
