The program is an entry level Biathlon program for approx ages 9-12. Athletes can feed into larger affiliated biathlon clubs after age 12 or when they are ready to shoot on air rifles and 22 calibre rifles.
The Eco-Aim camera rifles are a great training tool with a built in computer system allowing coaches to view the athletes sight target and breathing rhythms while also calculating timing and results.
Training will include range safety protocol and all Eco-Aim rifles will be treated just as any projectile rifle would be treated.
Athletes will be invited to attend and compete in local Kinder Cups which are fun entry level Biathlon races. Eco-Aim rifles will be used for all XCBC Biathlon athletes during these competitions unless other options are presented and training occurs.
Kinder Cup registration requires a $10 recreational Biathlon Canada Membership (please see below).
