British Orienteering elite coach education grant

We are pleased to announce a grant to support British Orienteering in development of coaches involved in the higher tiers of the athlete development pathway.

Our support will help British Orienteering to facilitate the onboarding and development of coaches within the athlete development program, specifically those operating in:

The plan is to introduce a comprehensive coach education program, to recruit new coaches and increase the total number of active coaches supporting the above levels, and to up-skill coaches already involved. Of particular focus are ex-international orienteers who already have a good insight and knowledge of the elite end of the sport. British Orienteering support an extensive program of training camps, pre-race preparation and attending a packed competition calendar, and the coaches are an integral part of this.

We wish the program every success and look forward to seeing the impact of the new coaches!
