Coming up on the 19th/20th of October, 2019 is MNBiathlon’s Fall Festival! This event will be held on the roller loops and range at the Woodland Trails in Elk River.
New this year will be a 2 hour Novice clinic to be put on with the help of coaches and experienced athletes. That will be followed by a training afternoon emphasizing ski and shooting skills.
On Sunday will be the last Rollerski Biathlon race of the season with zero at 10:00.
As usual, please let me know if you can make it, and to which events.
Bill Meyer, Coach
Junior National Team 2020
Based at Regional Centers/ Clubs
As a training camp based team, the purpose of the Junior National Team is to foster effective training environments and coaching relationships that support the continued development of our top performing Junior and Youth athletes.
Biathletes named to this team have demonstrated internationally competitive biathlon performances and/or Nationally competitive ski speed. Athletes will automatically qualify for this team via the following criteria, as long as they will be at in the Y/Jr age class for the coming season.
- Top 40 result (excluding relays) at YJWCH, or
- Top 40 result (excluding relays) at JOECH, or
- Top 20 results (excluding relays) at the Jr. IBU Cup, or
- Any Y/Jr athlete that qualifies for any Sr. IBU Cup or World Cup
Additional athletes may be named to the Junior National Team via discretion. When considering athletes for discretionary selection, the USBA principles of discretion will apply as well as these factors:
- Internationally competitive ski speed in biathlon, such as top 20 course times at JYWCH/JOECH.
- Nationally competitive ski speed in cross country, such as top 15 distance results at Junior Nationals, while showing commitment to biathlon.
- Junior or Youth athletes with exceptional results at US Biathlon National Championship.
If extra space is available at training camps before US Summer National Championships, additional athletes may be invited to participate based on their best performance at Junior & Youth World Championships, Junior IBU Cups, JOECH and US Nationals.
After Summer Nationals, extra camp space may be filled by staff recommendations and US Biathlon International Competition Committee approval based on the events listed above and Summer Nationals.
For athletes that have not taken WADA Anti Doping Educational Seminar, please make sure you undertake it BEFORE OCTOBER 15th. If you don’t complete the trainings before then, you will not be eligible to start at any IBU event (e.g. World Cups, YJWCH, IBU Cups, etc).
ALL athletes who plan on competing in IBU events this season MUST COMPLETE the training. If you have previously taken the training last year, that will suffice (I think a lot of the juniors have already completed this training). If not, you need to complete the training by OCTOBER 15.
Below you will find links on how to complete either of the processes. Once you are finished, please send Preston (email@example.com) your certificate of completion.
