Coaching Day – Star Posts

British Orienteering’s Coaching Day on 4 November at Star Posts, Bracknell was bathed in glorious sunshine, though a little nippy in the shade by the end of the afternoon.

SLOW’s twelve members attending ranged from a complete beginner to those with many years of orienteering. Under the guidance of four SLOW coaches, they did a range of nine exercises planned by SLOW’s development officer, including pace counting, attack points, aiming off, traffic lights, simplification and relocation, finished off with a team score event.

The 30 North-West Junior Squad members also benefitted as their coach borrowed our maps and exercises.

If you don’t know what some of these exercises mean, make sure you come along to the next SLOW coaching day!
