Sessions include:

  • Condes – introduction/intermediate AND masterclass (the latter to cover clever stuff like relays, doing things with the map, and various cunning work-arounds)
  • Safeguarding/Child Protection – an enjoyable and informative discussion relevant to everyone
  • Disability Awareness and how to make O a genuinely accessible sport for all.  Janice Eaglesham of Scottish Disability Sport promises a lively, informative and active (outdoor)  session.
  • Mentoring - what do we mean by it and how can we use it in orienteering?
  • SI Timing - practical introduction to the replacement for Autodownload
  • Coach CPD – sharing best practice
  • Coaching Foundation course – 2 x 3-hour sessions giving a practical introduction to coaching.  Suitable for anyone aged 16+ with O knowledge.
  • Grade B Controllers’ course – 2 x 3-hour sessions (Saturday afternoon & Sunday morning)
  • Junior development – follow-on discussion after conference on 1 April.

There will also be orienteering activity (with or without coaching) in nearby forests, and quizzes and challenges ongoing throughout the weekend.

If you now realise you haven't booked and you'd like to come along, please e-mail and we'll see what we can do.  You can certainly join the sessions, but we can't guarantee accommodation at Glenmore Lodge.
