nordic sports pei
The Brookvale Biathlon Bear’s Club will again be offering a skate-roller skiing fall program for young athletes (8-12) considering participating in the winter Biathlon Bear’s or Learn to Ski season in 2024. We will start the program on Sunday, October 1 at Brookvale between 2:30-5. At this session, we will fit the athletes with boots, skis and poles and will run the first roller skiing session on the pavement at the range. We will then run 5 additional sessions each Saturday from 9-10:30 am, with the last session on November 4. The Saturday sessions will be held at the Brackley Community Centre.
The program’s cost will be $40 (the same as last year) and will include the rental of roller skis, boots and poles. You will also be required to register your child with Biathlon Canada ($20) for the 2023/2024 season. The Biathlon Canada registration will also cover you for the winter season. If you have registered with Biathlon Canada for the summer run-and-shoot events, you won’t need to register again.
We also ask that parents register as supporters as this provides insurance for supporters through Biathlon Canada and bolsters the membership of Nordic Sports PEI which impacts funding. Athletes will be required to supply their own bicycle helmet. The use of a helmet is mandatory and athletes will not be allowed to participate if they do not have a helmet. Light gloves are also recommended. Knee and elbow pads are optional. We have a limited number of roller skis (19) so spaces in the program will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
If your child would like to participate please email with the following information:
1. Child’s name:
2. Child’s age:
3. Child’s shoe size:
4. Distance from floor to child’s nose:
5. Your name:
6. Your phone number:
(if you have multiple children please provide the information requested for questions 1-4 for each child).
Instructions on registering through the Zone4 service will be sent to the first 19 people who commit to participate in the program. I am looking forward to a great fall program. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
