Teen Leadership

Program Registration

Fall program registration is now available at https://zone4.ca/register.asp?id=15889

Winter program registration will open in mid-September.

Program Description

Our Teen Leadership program is for youth ages 13-18 (born in 1999-2004).

This program is designed for teenagers who are not interested in our race program, but who want to continue in the sport of biathlon and to begin to develop coaching and officiating skills.

This program will involve skiing and shooting, while assisting the Biathlon Bears program coaches with sessions for the Biathlon Bears. The program will also involve officiating at sanctioned 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.

The program has two seasons, Fall and Winter. Fall season is from September 12th to November 29th and Winter season is from December 2nd to March 11. You can register for both seasons or for just Winter.

Equipment Required

Athletes are required to provide their own ski equipment (skis, boots, poles). Athletes will need equipment for both skate and classic skiing. Equipment rentals are available through Whistler Olympic Park, Cypress, and local ski shops.
