Post Graduate Training Program
Fort Kent Outdoor Center, Fort Kent ME
A high performance training program designed to bring high school graduated Nordic skiers and Biathletes, aged 18-23 to the next level of competitive performance with a dedicated annual full time training program. The training will take advantage of the excellent facilities at the Fort Kent Outdoor Center which include a 3 Km roller skiing loop, a 30 point shooting range, and 25km of excellent Nordic trails that are FIS and IBU homologated with the longest snow covered season in the Northeast starting in early November and finishing in late April. Housing is offered at the Jalbert Biathlon Residence within walking distance of the FKOC venue. We highly encourage athletes to also take advantage of the University of Maine at Fort Kent while in training to stay intellectually stimulated while training and fulfill some early collegiate course requirements. Coaching responsibilities will be shared between Carl Theriault for biathlon specific training and Hannah Streinz for ski technique, strength and endurance training.
