Junior Team Training Calendar


The CMBC Junior Development Team will educate and train athletes on how to become successful Biathlon competitors. The program will provide athletes 9 to 20 years of age the opportunity to train and compete at a higher level with the goal of becoming a competitive racer. Athletes will learn the importance of sport specific training, technique, strength, endurance, agility, precision, accuracy and speed. This will be accomplished through year round training with a group of highly motivated athletes and coaches, individualized training plans and race support. These components will be combined with the camaraderie and teamwork required to foster the positive working environment necessary for success at the competitive level.

Quality Coaching:
Coaching is led by Head Coach, Rob Rosser. Rob also serves as a coach for the U.S. Paralympic Nordic and Biathlon team and also directs their athlete recruitment. Rob was an Olympian in the 1998 games in Nagano, 3 time North American Biathlon Champion, 5 time U.S. National Champion, former U.S. Army World Class Athlete (WCAP) team and National Guard Biathlon. Captain Rosser spent 21 yrs in the Army National Guard and is an Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran. “This sport has been great to me as an athlete and a person. Now as a coach, I also get to pay it forward to others. I am a firm believer that sport teaches us valuable lessons and builds positive character traits that stick with us for the rest of our lives. Traits such as discipline, work ethic, team cohesion, and teamwork will help kids succeed in school, family, occupation, and sport. Participation in sports ultimately builds better citizens.”

CMBC also utilizes quality assistant coaches to facilitate workouts. Assistant coaching staff still TBD.
