Despite the diversity of general and specific sports technologies and the cultivation of many sports in the physical education of university students, there are still many pedagogical problems associated with certain aspects of the types of training (technical, tactical, psychological, special physical, etc.), and including shooting training for students involved in biathlon at the university. In this regard, objective of the study was to develop a methodology for shooting training for students involved in the biathlon sports section at the university. The pedagogical experiment was attended by 30 1-2 year students of Siberian Federal University (Krasnoyarsk), engaged in the sports section in biathlon, having massive sports categories. Biathlon students were divided into Reference Group and Experimental Group of 15 people each. During the academic year, the experimental group was engaged in the developed methodology of shooting training, and the Reference Group was engaged in the generally accepted in student sections. The contents of the shooting training of the experimental group included a variety of exercises not only to improve the shooting technique, but also to form psychological stability in the process of competitive activity. Biathlon students performed a large percentage of exercises in conditions close to competitive ones.
The obtained experimental results allowed the authors to recommend the methodology of shooting training of biathlon students for use in the system of physical education of university students in the northern regions.
