Give it a Shot Nordic Biathalon

At the beginning and end of the season, we invite anyone age 9+ interested in the exciting and challenging sport of Biathlon to come to "Give It A Shot!"
This 30 – 45 minute introductory program gives participants the opportunity to try the marksmanship skills required for winter biathlon. Certified coaches will provide the participant with an overview of range and rifle safety as well as the basic mechanics of the sport.
In the sport of Biathlon what type of target is used and in what position it is used is determined by age. Generally, the youngest and beginners will start in the prone position using a rest, shooting at the larger standing targets. Then move on to shooting without a rest and then progressing to the smaller prone targets. Finally, in the standing position, shooting at the standing targets. For this program, participants will shoot at the level which they can comfortably be successful, regardless of their age.
The program fee includes certified rifle instruction, ammunition, as well as day insurance with Biathlon Canada.

Registration Pre-registration is highly encouraged to ensure your time spot. Registration is through zone 4. Search for Vancouver Island Biathlon Club, then Give It A Shot! Same Day registration is available by stopping by the VIBC Range Hut between 12pm and 1pm to see if there are any spots still available.
