BIATHLON BEARS U12 & U14

Biathlon Bears – Track attack program is for skiers who desire to continue their skill development through the exciting and challenging sport of biathlon. It is designed for children between 10-13 years old. It is a 3-tiered program and participants are recognized as they progress through the levels.  In this program, athletes will progressively work toward developing and refining their skiing and shooting abilities in a safe and fun manner through the use of drills, games, relays, and more. Biathlon Bears is for young athletes in the FUNdamentals and Learn to Train development stages of the Long-Term Athlete Development Model. Important development of mental and physical skills, focus, and discipline is gained, skills that can be applied to all future avenues of life.

EXPECTATIONS/COMMITMENTS
  • Athletes and parents must complete the introduction to biathlon course
  • One parent is required to be present at each session
  • Previous ski experience is not a requirement at the U12 level, but can be an asset
  • ski experience at the U14 level is required, unless discussed with coach
    **If you are a Biathlon Bear, please register only as a Biathlon Bear and do not register for Track attack**
Rifle:

All biathletes must have a biathlon rifle. There are a number of club rifles available to new biathletes on a first come first served basis, rental is $165 for the first year and $215 for subsequent years. 

A firearms PAL (possession acquisition license) is required before anyone can take a rifle home for dry firing practice.

All biathletes must pay for the ammunition they use. Typical ammo cost for a year is between $140.00 and $400.00.

 

Fundraising and Volunteering:


The success of our programs hinge on volunteer coaches and parent help in a variety of disciplines. We ask that for every child registered in the program, there is volunteer help from at least one parent. Parents are asked to find a volunteer role that best suits their schedule, interest and abilities. The club requires both new and experienced coaches at various levels, so if you are interested in coaching and don’t want to coach your own child, that’s not a problem. We’ll help you find a suitable coaching role. The club provides coach training, and you provide your time and knowledge to develop future athletes. If you would prefer a volunteer task that does not involve coaching, fantastic! We’ve got tasks for you. There is a section of volunteer opportunities on the Zone4 registration to identify your interests. Thank you to all our volunteers!

 

We have a fundraising policy. Families will be given the choice of actively participating in fundraising activities or paying a fundraising levy. More information will be distributed upon registration. If you would like to be involved in coordinating fundraising activities, please send an e-mail expressing your interest to programs@caledonianordic.com.

Note: We encourage multi-sport involvement for enjoyment and to develop a full range of athletic abilities. Older athletes often have work and other responsibilities. The Head Coach will meet with athletes and parents pre-season to preview schedules, clarify goals & mutual expectations to outline a plan that balances the individual needs of the athlete with the needs of running a cohesive club program. The Head Coach will be flexible in helping to determine the right balance and reserves the right to set minimum training and attendance requirements.
