During the World Cup in Canmore, Biathlon Canada will host an Experience Camp. This is an unique opportunity for athletes born between 1997-2004 to take part in high quality training sessions, get insider’s perspective from a World Cup venue and discuss biathlon with the Olympic athletes as they arrive Canmore to compete on home turf.
The camp takes place February 5-11, 2019. It will be led by Roddy Ward, Director of Long Term Athlete Development and 2018 Olympic Coach and Jacqueline Akerman, Athlete and Coach Development Manager, as well as other high performance coaches.
Athletes will take part in training sessions on the World Cup course and in other locations around the Bow Valley. Athletes will gain exposure to World Cup racing, participate in a TV test race, fore-run for the World Cup, volunteer for the World Cup, meet and chat with members of Canada’s World Cup Team, and learn from specialists (Nutrition, Sport Psych, Physiology, and Strength) who work with our Senior National Team athletes.
