Youth High Performance
The Youth HP is a high-performance year round training program designed for athletes graduating from Senior HP and those with aspirations to compete at Canada Winter Games, World Youth and Junior Biathlon Championship and Canadian Biathlon National Championship. This program is also open to active biathletes aged 16 to 18 with race experience at Canadian National level. The group trains an average of 5 days a week. They spend a considerable amount of time at multi-day training camps in both Canada and the U.S. The training process in this group revolves around individual development with a strong focus on nutrition, race tactics, strategies, recovery, precision shooting and efficient technique under physical and mental stress, detailed photo/video analysis. Each athlete in the Youth HP program receives an individual training plan and is encouraged to maintain an online based biathlon-specific training log. Each athlete seeking entry to this program will have to meet the minimum performance requirements set by the Head Coach.
