Acres Down, Forest Coaching

Kevin and Norman discussing Routes, Colin explaining to Nick Jarvis why he put the kite in the wrong place!


The rain held off and it brightened up to be very warm by the end of the session.

Those that came along took advantage of the opportunity to hone technique and discuss their use

of skills and how they worked for them on particular legs.

There was something for everyone to try from juniors right through to the more experienced orienteers.

Interesting that some of the most consistent orienteers in the club chose to come along and practice.

Perhaps there is lesson there on why they do perform so well on a regular basis.


The Next Forest Coaching Session will be on Salisbury Trench on Saturday 17th November starting at 10:30. Details to follow. So if you want to improve your orienteering skill set put this date in your diary now!
