Club Description

Brainard Nordic Ski Club (BNSC) supports young athletes in a local biathlon program and those pursuing USSA level competitions with grants to athletes for national/international competitions outside of the state to defray travel costs, and volunteers for races. Our local Club, Nisswa NW Biathlon [NNW] is a member club of both MNBiathlon and USBA. We have been advancing the sport of Biathlon locally for the past 20 some years. Nisswa NW currently maintains two 50 meter biathlon ranges in the area, one in Nisswa with 2km of groomed trails and one just to the east of Nisswa that allows roller skiing in the snowfree months. BNSC has supported the athletes with grants to assist in travel expenses, and many active members of BNSC have or have had teenagers in the program or have participated themselves. Rifles are available for annual lease from Minnesota Biathlon for Youth and Juniors. Our program consists of year-round training. We frequently travel to other venues across the lower US and Alaska for training and racing; along with British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec in Canada.
