Give BIATHLON a shot! We’re recruiting for 2020-21 season and beyond

Biathlon is a fairly unique discipline in the world of sports as it combines two seemingly opposite components, which are cross country skiing and rifle marksmanship. This makes it a great sport to be a part of for children and youth as it teaches them the very basic mechanical skills and then develops the more complex aspects of human bio-mechanics.

Investing in education

From the day we opened our doors back in May of 2012 we committed to a performance-inspired biathlon program that would develop quality athletes for Canada’s Junior and Senior National Teams. That goal, in our minds, could only be achieved by developing quality individuals first, and that is nearly impossible without quality and continuous education.

Biathlon Focused Since 2012

Unlike the majority of the Nordic programs in Canada offering both cross country skiing and biathlon components, CBR coaches focus solely on biathlon training. This approach is modeled after the Sport School of Olympic Reserve systems of Russia and the Ukraine. At the core of these systems is the development of performance-inspired athletes and a natural progression to National Junior and Senior teams level.
