Coaching Conference Round Up

The 2021 Virtual Coaching Conference has got off to a great start this week with four sessions having taken place:

  • Introduction to S&C
  • Remote Terrain Safety Workshop
  • Systematic Orienteering
  • Coaching & COVID

Viewed by over 300 people, the conference has provided a range of fascinating insights and discussions, for coaches and orienteers across the UK.

Speaking about the conference, Peter Brooke, Operations Manager said:

"The response and feedback has been excellent to all the sessions. Many thanks to all the presenters and Denise from the SOA for their time and effort which has been appreciated by so many. The sessions have not only been useful for coaches but also those looking to improve their own personal Orienteering skills.

I'd recommend signing up for one of the remaining sessions early and watching the previous ones back."
