Teen Leadership

2018/2019 Program Registration

Winter Biathlon Program registration is now closed.

Program Description

Our Teen Leadership program is for youth ages 14-18 (born in 2000-2004).

This program is designed for teenagers who are not interested in a competitive training program, but who want to continue doing biathlon and to develop coaching and officiating skills for a lifetime involvement in sport.

Teen Leaders will take part in skiing and shooting activities, while assisting the club coaches with sessions for the Biathlon Bears and Junior Racers programs. Teen Leaders will also help officiate at the 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.
