Biathlon, the newest addition to Sitrin's STARS Program, is a popular sport that combines target shooting and cross-country skiing. Sitrin's biathlon training program is year-round, incorporating the use of paved trails, SkiErg® machines, and roller skis during the off-season. Sitrin's biathletes have had the opportunity to compete at the regional and national levels.
The program is designed for training with stand-up or sit-ski equipment, depending upon the athlete's ability. Athletes do not need to have prior skiing experience to participate. Coaches teach basic concepts and techniques involved with both skiing and shooting.
