Part of a series of training days aimed at two groups of people:
1/ newcomers to bush orienteering
2/ those wanting to step up from Moderate to Hard bush courses

There will be a structured series of coaching and training activities to develop skills and confidence for bush orienteering. Each training day proceeds a club event so you’ll be able to put your improved skills to test.

Note there is no cost for these events but please contact us (info@awoc.org.au) so we know how many people to expect.

Session 2

Session 2 is based in the magnificent Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park, a world-class area for orienteering. Meet at the Honeyeater Picnic Area off Cyanide Road.

Skills coaching will build on the basics learnt in Session 1 – map orientation, location tracking and identifying common features.  There will also be an introduction to mining features and contours.  More advanced coaching focusing on contours is available for those looking to move up to Hard courses.
