Vancouver Island Biathlon Club offering new programs for winter 2015-16

The Vancouver Island Biathlon Club (VIBC), operating out of the Mount Washington Nordic Centre, will be offering a number of opportunities this season to get involved in the exciting sport of biathlon.

Programs offered by VIBC will include the Biathlon Bears for younger children and youth aged 10-14 years, as well as a masters program for ages 15 through adult.

VIBC is also offering visitors to Mount Washington the chance to Give Biathlon a Shot!  On Dec. 27, visitors will be able to try this challenging Olympic sport at the club’s range, located just beyond the Raven Lodge.

In another exciting development, Vancouver Island Biathlon Club has joined forces with the Strathcona Nordic Ski Club to offer Nordic sport aficionados the chance to hone their skills in skiing and shooting. While the clubs remain separate entities, this cooperative effort means that winter sport enthusiasts can enjoy seamlessly integrated programs.

All programs are taught by instructors trained to the standards of Biathlon Canada. The focus is on safety, but the fun is guaranteed. Registration for all courses can be done online through Zone 4. For more information, you email vibiathlonclub@gmail.com, or visit the website at vibiathlon.ca

“If you would like to get more involved with the club or find out more about us, please join us for our AGM at 4 p.m. on Dec. 27 at the Vancouver Island Mountain Centre opposite Raven Lodge,” said VIBC president Pat Douglas.
