This summer, we held multiple Sunday clinics for BAM athletes in contention for the upcoming Canada Winter Games in February, 2019. It was a great success with excellent weather and good camaraderie. Well done athletes for taking the time to come out and train hard. Thanks to Brian Walters for getting the ball rolling and coaches Christel, Doug, Heather and Kenton for organizing the clinics.
On June 23-24, BAM held a training camp for all potential Canada Winter Games athletes and a successful camp it was. One day included performing strength, speed and agility drills at the Sport For Life complex in Winnipeg, with a second day at Falcon Lake Biathlon Range focusing on shooting, hill running and combination drills. A gruelling, but fantastic weekend! Thanks to Coaches Gregg Campbell and Heather Willis for putting them through the paces.
