Orienteering Foundation Coaching Day - Saturday 20 November, Lake District

The Orienteering Foundation are pleased to announce support for another coaching day in the Lakes this autumn on Saturday 20 November 2021. The format will be similar to previous years, this time using the wonderful Summerhouse Knott as used for the British Middles earlier this year. We are particularly keen to promote coaching of adult orienteers, who are often under-served, but also welcome groups including juniors.

Timing – 10am until 2.30pm when controls will be collected.

The coaching day is open to the following participants:

  • Individuals – Cost £12 per individual participant. This covers access fees, planned training exercises, hung controls, printed maps, and expert coaching from Derek Allison and / or other experienced coaches.  Any standard from TD4 (Light Green) up to full TD5 can be catered for.  All individual participants must be 18+ years of age.
  • Groups – For example clubs, schools, or junior squads.  Cost £6 per group participant. This covers access fees, and supply of electronic map (OCAD) and course files (Purple Pen) to group leaders. Groups MUST supply their own coach(es), who are suitably qualified, sufficient in number, and responsible for the safety of their group. Groups will need to print their own maps, and may either use the planned courses, or modify / design their own using the same controls (please do not hang additional controls in the forest, unless by prior agreement with Derek). Group participants may be of any age that their coaches are happy to supervise. There are plans to have some TD 2/3 controls for use by groups, details to follow.
