Comp Air Rifle Team
Ages 14-15 OR by invitation based on sport specific speed ability


Program

With a focus on race competition, Comp Air athletes train to a plan that combines group

practices, independent workouts and the athlete’s other sports and activities. Athletes train

with the Comp Nordic Team; a majority of training is performed as part of the larger team.


Dryland training follows the Nordic program beginning in July and will include roller skiing, ski

striding, running, cycling and weekly strength training to develop the physical strength,

balance, and flexibility to support enhanced ski performance.
 

Rifle training will focus on refining the prone positioning using an S-400 compressed-air rifle,

advanced precision skills, high intensity combination shooting skills, and race specific shooting

tactics. Program fees are aligned to fee structure for Nordic programs with additional biathlon

specific.
