The Alberta Biathlon Club (ABC) was incorporated as a society in May 1985. ABC was formed with the goal of maintaining the momentum of the 1988 Olympic Winter Games held in Calgary to further develop the sport of biathlon in the province and to address some of the challenges facing the sport.

- promote, develop and increase participation in the sport of Biathlon in Alberta;
- foster the development, operation and maintenance of facilities for biathlon for the use of its members and others, and;
- provide its members with opportunities and training for self-development, leadership, competition, recreation and sportsmanship in biathlon.
