USBA Intro to Biathlon Camp

Last Updated: 17.May.2012

We're happy to be hosting an Intro to Biathlon Training Camp for 11-13 year olds, June 15-17. It's a great opportunity for motivated XC skiers to join the US Biathlon Team and the Craftsbury Green Racing Project for a weekend of biathlon!

Skiers will train with USBA coach Algis Shalna and members of the GRP, learning the basics of biathlon marksmanship. Training will include dryland training as well:  agility, plyometrics, trail running, ski technique drills, and a running biathlon race. Athletes will learn lots about biathlon and what it’s like to train and compete at a high level. Algis is an Olympic Gold Medalist, and athletes from the USBA Jr and Sr National teams will be helping out at the camp.

Cost for the camp is $185 and includes room/board, coaching and equipment. Find out more (and get registration info) in this pdf.
