The Seattle Police Athletic Association (SPAA) is located at 11030 East Marginal Way S, Seattle, WA. It is south of Boeing Field a few blocks south of the Boeing Access Rd. From I-5 take Exit 158 and go west to East Marginal Way S then south underneath the light rail tracks. Look for the WBA banner on the entry fence.

Eligibility: This event is designed for those new to Biathlon and those interested in a basic refresher. It includes the mandatory safety class as well as training in range procedures, race strategy and marksmanship. It is not intended for experienced Biathletes. It is limited to twenty participants so preregistration is required.

Ammunition: Biathlon rifles use low or standard velocity .22 caliber ammunition with 40 grain lead bullets. The WBA supplies ammunition for this event.

Instructors: Instructors will be experienced biathletes from the Washington Biathlon Association, including athletes who have competed nationally and internationally. For more information please contact Clinic Director Bob Vallor at bob.vallor(at)wabiathlon.org.

Safety Certification: The Mandatory U.S. Biathlon Association safety certification course will be given with this clinic. If you have already taken the safety course you are encouraged to go again, as there have been some rule changes in recent seasons.
