Rachel Koroscil, Head Coach
Rachel grew up on a farm in rural Manitoba. She fell in love with the sport of biathlon and soon began training as a part of the provincial team. After graduating in 2009, Rachel moved to Winnipeg to begin university and subsequently began coaching for the province of Manitoba. After representing Manitoba at the Canada Winter Games in 2011, she completed the switch from athlete to coach and was named the Provincial Head Coach of Biathlon Manitoba the following year. Between her coaching responsibilities, Rachel earned a Bachelor of Physical Education in 2013 and a Bachelor of Education in 2015 from the University of Manitoba. In 2015, she moved out to Canmore to begin working with the Canmore Nordic Ski Club as the Lead Biathlon Coach and Biathlon Program Manager. Through her 8 years with CNSC, she coached athletes just starting out in the sport, all the way to athletes competing at the Olympic Games in Beijing 2021. She completed her Advanced Coaching Diploma in 2019 and has been accepted to the IBU Coach Academy for the Level 2 course in 2023-24. Between domestic coaching, she has also led and assisted on many international tours including World Youth and Junior Championships, IBU Cups, World Cups, and World Championships. Additionally, she served on the Biathlon Canada Domestic Committee from 2017-2020 and the Biathlon Alberta Board as the Coaching Development Director from 2019 to 2023. Beyond coaching, she can be found applying her Manitoba farming skills in her garden, traveling, or out enjoying the mountains through backpacking, fishing, or running.
