The BNZ Biathlon Awards start at Bronze which covers safety and basic procedures which should be attainable in an athlete's first season.
Silver introduces the need to shoot under pressure, be it weather, higher exertion or a short biathlon competition.
At Gold level, the athlete will be able to shoot from standing position as well as on the smaller prone targets when in prone supported position.
Finally, Platinum level would see the athlete competent enough to ski with rifle on back and able enough to compete in the BNZ National Championships held every September at Snow Farm.
