The GRIZZLIES Biathlon DEVELOPMENT Program

The BEARS Biathlon Program is in its sixth year and teaches the skills required to compete in the sport of biathlon. It is designed for kids ages 8-12. This program will be entirely on SKATE skis. We should have rentals available, and if not, we can track some down. Complete beginners welcome. Athletes are not expected to compete until they have completed the requisite skills as guided by our report card system. Training and competition rifles are provided.

  • Have FUN!

  • Introduce a variety and excitement into the skiing program

  • Learn to handle and shoot rifles safely

  • Learn discipline and concentration

  • Begin the development of skate skiing

  • Develop the skills required to move to the race team in Barrhead

BEARS BIATHLON RACE TEAM

Once athletes have developed the requisite skill through the biathlon development program, they may join the race team. The team trains with the Crazy Mare Ranch Biathlon Academy (CMR) in Barrhead for a fee. CMR is headed by two ex-olympians that have created a biathlon training facility on private land. Generally, Bears train in Barrhead on weekends and Edmonton during the week in the ENSC biathlon program. The combination of the two programs, with the very small-group tutelage and world class expertise provided by Crazy Mare, has allowed Bears to become a legitimate biathlon force in Alberta.
