Beginning Juniors and Adults:
These sessions are for adult and younger skiers interested in learning biathlon and taking part in local races this winter. If you are new to skiing or biathlon, or have not raced or ski trained this season, these are the sessions for you.
The class will cover biathlon rifle handling fundamentals and ski conditioning as applied to beginner and intermediate biathletes. Participants should expect to not only work hard on their shooting but also be enthusiastic skiers as well as cooperative and disciplined team members. Focused and courteous behavior is expected of all our participants on the range.
Fees: $250 all participants
Tuesdays 6:30-7:45 pm: Jan.11,18, 25. Feb.1, 8, 15, 22

To take part in our training sessions, athletes must have successfully completed the Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage Biathlon Range Safety class, have a current United States Biathlon Association competition license, and to train on the range and/ or use an NSAA biathlon rifle, be a member of NSAA and have purchased for the 2020-21 season a NSAA Biathlon Range membership.
Additional costs such as purchasing a shooting cuff (available through Biathlon Alaska or NSAA) and standard velocity match grade .22 ammunition will also be accrued. There is currently a nationwide shortage of ammunition and we may have to ask that participants provide their own this winter. Hi velocity ammo may not be used on the range at Kincaid Park.
Respond to this email by January 11th to reserve a place in the session. Space is limited based on our need to maintain safe and productive athlete/ coach ratios. See the NSAA website for information on upcoming range safety classes and membership information.
Please contact me if you have any questions and we'll see you at the range.
