Biathlon Australia is running a program for schools interested in the sport of biathlon. It's a chance for teens and children to learn new skills, gain fitness and be entertained on a Sunday afternoon. The participants learn marksmanship using Laser rifles. We learn fitness, balance and strength through exercises and the obstacle course. In the absence of snow, ski technique is learnt through roller skiing. Skikes are provided for those who don't have their own roller skis.
