Twenty keen Orienteers, ranging in experience from one or two events right through to some of the best in the club, came along to the training activity. The array of loops prepared by Helen provided something for everyone to try and most people completed at least two loops.
Orientating the map, Cutting corners, aiming off, recognising vegetation boundaries, identifying handrails and running on bearings are just a few of the techniques that were covered.
A big thank you to Helen and Colin for putting on this series of coaching activities.
A chance to try out different techniques and talk through how it went is an important part of improving your orienteering skills.
Our final Coaching Activity in the Forest is next Saturday the 14th of March. A last chance to hone your skills before the Compass Sport Trophy and the British Championships.
Hope to see you there,
