ACTIV8 Wasatch Introduction to Biathlon Fall 2023
October 2 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm$24.00 – $99.00
The Youth Sports Alliance (YSA) is excited to offer a four-week introduction to biathlon program for 6th-12th graders as part of the ACTIV8 Program.
Dates: Monday, October 2, 9, 30, and November 6 from 1:30-3:30pm
The Soldier Hollow biathlon experience provides a taste of biathlon competition on the 2002 Olympic Biathlon Range in Midway, Utah. During the 4-week session, participants will learn firearm safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship using German air-rifles. The second half of the course will introduce shooting with a heart rate and will culminate with a fun mini competition.
You must fill out this Soldier Hollow waiver BEFORE the first day of the program. Your child will not be able to participate until it is completed. This program will happen rain or shine, and there will be no refunds for bad weather.
Transportation is provided from Timpanogos and Rocky Mountain Middle School. Bus will pick up students immediately after school at Timpanogos and then pick up at Rocky Mountain before heading to Jordanelle.
Bus Chaperone: To run this program with transportation we need a parent bus chaperone to meet the students at the school and ride the bus to and from Soldier Hollow. To volunteer, purchase your child the chaperone student ticket. Please contact Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org or 801-400-5044 if you have any questions.
