Fun-Training Session for Younger Juniors

20 November 2016


In the interests of building greater confidence in our younger juniors (anyone aged in the 8-13 range) you are invited to bring your child(ren) along in advance of the event at Hellfire Wood on Sunday 20 November.

Our plan is to meet at 0945 in the Hellfire car park and to walk across the road to Massy’s Estate then for 1000. We will have three games planned … where we are / Line Orienteering / ‘Vampire’ Orienteering … with learning and a bit of fun in mind!

Games will be short and will focus on the fun and social aspects of the sport as well as dealing with basic map-reading skills such as map setting and self-locating.  Games will finish at 1120 and the participants can be collected from the finish point in Massy’s. All are welcome and parents may of course remain in close proximity. No cost.

Participants can then try their skills by entering Setanta’s event across the road in Hellfire straight after, if they wish.

You might register your advance interest in the Training directly with John on
