Steph and Graeme have produced some really useful coaching exercises at each of the last 3 WEE sessions, catering for everyone from beginner to experienced orienteers. Even the most confident and experienced will benefit from an exercise that isolates a particular skill or technique and allows it to be practised and polished away from the stress of competition. There will be more coaching next week at Jordanstown – take advantage before running a course and then go out and practise if you still have the energy! In the meantime many thanks to both Steph and Graeme, and their very small band of helpers, for all the hard work in producing and setting up the exercises.
