This program is parallel to the XC Junior Race Team, with a focus on biathlon. Athletes should be able to ski at levels comparable to cross-country skiers of a similar age group within the region. Shooting focus is on consistency and cadence from both the prone and standing positions. The athlete will begin carrying the rifle and learn proper range procedure. Athletes will race with the XC Junior Race Team whenever possible and focus on a few of higher-level biathlon races each winter. Athletes at this level must have their own rifle or one that is fitted to them for the season.
