Thank you for investing your time and energy into coaching Biathlon! You are an essential component to the growth of the sport and in the success of participants and athletes. Whether you are actively coaching the next Olympic & Paralympic athletes, introducing youth and Master skiers to our exciting sport for the first time, or somewhere in between, we applaud your efforts and aim to support you along the way.
In the summer of 2023, US Biathlon will be announcing a multitude of new resources and strategies towards Coach Development with the aim to support the development of existing coaches, and to provide a pathway for new coaches to get involved and educated. This will include our first Mobile Coach online community with resources for coaches and a special focus on our new "Foundations of Biathlon Coaching" online course. We believe this will provide an important opportunity to for all US Biathlon coaches to be on the same page with the core principles and foundational elements that go into Coaching Biathlon.
US Biathlon will continue in late 2023 & 2024 to expand its investment into Coaching Development and Coaching Education to support the development of our athletes all across the country. From our annual Coaches Conference to online courses, webinars, regular educational modules, we hope our US Biathlon coaches will find great value in these efforts, and will appreciate our in-person and virtually coach gatherings in the months and years to come.
In addition to resources US Biathlon plans to provide and share, we encourage you to consume all Coaching Development knowledge common to Biathlon and of a more general Coaching nature, including from our friends and partners at US Ski & Snowboard (More information on U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s Coaches Development programs can be found at https://usskiandsnowboard.org/sport-development/coaches-development). Feel free to share with us content you feel could have value to other US Biathlon Coaches by sending a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
