Ready to go Orienteering – 2018

We are pleased to announce that the Irish Orienteering Association has secured continued funding for the Ready to go Orienteering project.

The initiative is funded by a grant from the Dormant Accounts Fund and is primarily targeted at schools in disadvantaged areas. Central to the project is a one-day training course for teachers – this training provides teachers with the knowledge, understanding and practical ability to teach the basic skills of orienteering in an enjoyable and rewarding way. The funding has also enabled us to develop a package of training resources for schools and has included the production of more than 50 high quality school orienteering maps.

Training courses have been delivered in several locations around the country over the past year. We will be  announcing dates for further courses in 2018.
