After 6 days of tough orienteering at the Scottish 6 Days it is time to review my orienteering style and decide what I need to work on.
I’m going to use my maps and Splitsbrowser as my main tools. I spent some of each evening reviewing my day with Rob Lee, who came 3rd in my class (M50L), so I have already thought about route choices etc. Read more
LOC have a couple of these Seiko DPU-3445 printers. They usually work pretty well, but typically, one of them stopped working just at the wrong time.
The printer would feed and print out the printer settings sheet (with the printer off, hold down both keys and release the power one first). Read more
This is worth a read for everyone that orienteers. Thierry talks about how and why to use a compass.
We were just doing some work on planning sessions for Primary Schools and were looking for how Orienteering fitted into the National Curriculum. The following section is from the page for PE.

I’ve just spent some time looking at the map, old courses and Google maps for the upcoming Midlands Orienteering Championships with one of my athletes. These are being held on Sunday 3rd February 2013 at Sherwood Forest.
I spent the weekend at Lilleshall at the BO Coaching Conference. This year’s theme was mainly the more Elite end, but there were a wide range of sessions.
Mike Hamilton kicked off the first day with an overview of the Whole Sport Plan. Read more
I’ve been asked to present at a Scottish Orienteering Coach CPD Day on Sat 23rd February 2013.
The session will be on coaching terrain running skills, specifically up and downhill.
Full details for the programme can be found at here.
Indoor orienteering can sometimes seem a bit of an odd occupation. I think it gives the opportunity to practise skills in decent conditions under extreme time pressure.
Clearly I am not the only one to think this. Here is Tove Alexandersson, WOC 2012 Silver medallist completing an indoor course in a big sports hall. Read more
It appears that Canadian Sport has taken a long hard look at Long term Athlete Development and bought into the concept completely. Lynne Walker sent me a number of links to do with this area.
