Podium kids shoot for sport

Podium of Life Snowsports Academy students learned to shoot guns as part of biathlon training

Podium of Life Snowsports Academy students learned to shoot guns as part of biathlon training.

Vancouver Island Biathlon club offered a day of training for the students.

In partnership with the Vancouver Island Mountain Centre, students were shown what a biathlon race was all about. Students were given all the instructions on how to shoot, then they raced each other.

“They loved this experience,” says their teacher, Shane Harle. “It is such a great feeling being able to offer these unique opportunities to students. Next week we are taking the kids geocaching in the snow.”

Vancouver Island Mountain Centre offers a variety of activities for school groups, including overnight accommodations. Visit www.vimountaincentre.com for information.
