Midwest Regional Biathlon Development Camp
June 14-24, 2017
Mt. Itasca/ Grand Rapids MN
This camp will focus on developing biathlon shooting skills- position, accuracy drills, and combo training for athletes that have varying experience in biathlon . Volume training, rollerskiing, running, biking, as well as strength and technique work.
1) new athletes: 14 years and older must be a good skier – perfect camp, if you are serious about biathlon. Shooting (including rifle set up) focused on accuracy, practicing both positions – prone and standing, developing good position and range procedure, accuracy shooting, combo shooting.
For new and younger athletes I would recommend to stay just for the 1st week. (6.14-6.18)
2) experienced athletes – great camp to improve your biathlon skills: shooting – check position – make adjustments, focused accuracy and combo shooting, rollerski technique, strength, plus several butt kicking workouts…
Daily schedule: first week – shooting twice a day with 1 or 2 physical workout as well;
second week – combo shooting with more biathlon specific training (rollerskiing, running, biking, strength) with few epic workouts!!!
