On the weekend of April 25-27 the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club hosted the largest Introduction to Competition biathlon coaching course ever delivered in Canada. Fifteen participants attended the IC-1 dryland course, in Prince George, representing five clubs across British Columbia.
The lead facilitator was Alex Dumont and it was co-lead by Pierre Beaudry. By all reports it was a great course, a lot was learned and practiced and all participants felt that they are now better prepared as coaches for the upcoming biathlon season.
