summer biathlon group

The Whistler Biathlon Society is pleased to offer opportunities to partner with us in our mission to promote active, healthy lifestyles and a culture of volunteerism through involvement in the sport of biathlon.  The support of our sponsors plays an integral role in the development of biathlon at the local, provincial and national level.

Sponsorship of our events supports the development of certified coaches and officials, provides opportunities for participation and competition, assists in keeping the costs of high performance amateur sport affordable, and plays an important part in promoting biathlon and community involvement.

The sponsorship packages described below should be considered as a starting point; there are a variety of ways in which your organization can receive exposure, promotion and opportunity for onsite sales, and contribute to the success of these events. We will work with you to ensure that your support is recognized in a way that promotes your business and engages your people.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding how your organization can take advantage of these opportunities to promote your brand and support the development of biathlon.

2017-2018 Sponsorship Packages

Events

This season the Whistler Biathlon Society is hosting two major events: a combined North American Cup / Biathlon Canada IBU Cup and Youth Junior World Championships trials event on January 3-7, and the BC Biathlon Championships on March 2-4.

North American Cup / Biathlon Canada Trials, January 3-7, 2018

This high-performance event is expected to bring 50-75 of the best biathletes from across Canada and the United States outside of the national teams to Whistler Olympic Park. The NorAm Cup is being combined with a trials event for Canada’s IBU Cup team and its team for the Youth/Junior World Championships, making this one of the most competitive domestic events of the season.

In addition to the NorAm Cup and trials, there will be categories for local and younger athletes. We expect over 100 athletes to compete at this event.

BC Cup 2 – February 9-11, 2018

We are hosting the second of four events in the provincial cup series this winter. This event attracts around 150 athletes. Also in attendance are dozens of coaches and parents, and around 75 officials and volunteers.

Athletes come to compete in this event from across B.C. as well as from Yukon, Washington State and beyond. The athletes range in age from 8-60, with the majority of the athletes being ages 10-16. This event is our biggest event of the year in terms of attendance.
