Development and Sport Athletes:

The above classes are designed to provide a series of biathlon challenges with increasing difficulty. As recommended in the Long Term Athlete Development Model, and Sport-4- Life programs, the Air Rifle and Development classes are keyed more to the athlete's level of physical, mental and technical development than to birthdates.

Athletes are encouraged to choose a level of difficulty which is close to their best performance possibility – one that is challenging to their physical and technical abilities and the amount of training they have received. Athletes are expected to consult their coaches and parents about this choice.

Persons who compete in the Air Rifle, Development or Sport categories may choose which category they compete in when they register for a competition.

Choosing your first category

  • Talk to your coach and ask his or her advice, and consult with your parents.

Choosing your next category

  • Racing against people that are slightly better that you or almost as good as you is fun. Trying hard to beat them will make you better at Biathlon.
