Biathlon consists of two sports, so a race includes several laps of cross country skiing with shooting in between. At the Area cadet competition, air rifles are fired on a 10-m range. As with standard competitions, .22 rifles are fired on a 50-m range at the cadet Regional and National competitions. We typically select 8 to 12 cadets for the Area competition each year, and in the past five years we have had five cadets qualify to compete at the Regional competition against cadets from across Ontario.
All equipment is provided, and prior experience is not required to join. In fact, for most team members, this was their introduction to skiing or shooting. We have a training plan for everyone, and practices where we will teach and help you improve sport-specific skills.
