Biathlon Nova Scotia (BiNS) focuses on the development of recreational and competitive biathlon athletes ranging in ages from nine to sixty years old.
Our Biathlon Bears program is the introductory program to the sport where athletes learn the skills of skiing and shooting in a safe educational way, with a focus on sportsmanship and fun. Biathlon Bears is open to any athlete nine years or older who is new to the sport.
Our competitive team is geared for athletes 13 years and older, with practices typically held biweekly in the winter and periodically over the summer.
In addition to the scheduled practices, numerous development camps are held throughout the year in collaboration with Biathlon NB and Biathlon PEI, with trials also held in Quebec and Maine, US.
Biathlon Nova Scotia recognizes the support of the Province of Nova Scotia. We are pleased to work in partnership with the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage to develop and promote our cultural resources for all Nova Scotians.
Biathlon Nova Scotia recognizes Nordic Marksman's continued sponsorship of events not only in Nova Scotia, but across the Maritime provinces in support of the sport.
