Volunteers/Instructors: Instructors will be SPNC certified ski instructors and experienced biathletes from the Washington Biathlon Association, including athletes who have competed nationally and internationally. For more information please contact Clinic Director Bob Vallor at bob.vallor@wabiathlon.org.

Safety Certification: The Mandatory U.S. Biathlon Association safety certification course will be given with this clinic. If you have already taken the safety course you are encouraged to go again, as there have been some rule changes in recent seasons.
