Coaching in the forest

Coaching day Feb 2018

The Orienteering Foundation was happy to support a coaching day open to individuals and groups back in February 2018.  We were particularly keen to promote coaching of adult orienteers, who are often under-served, but also welcomed groups including juniors.  Details of the day are below.

Sadly the day saw very cold and snowy weather, but those who made it were either coached as individuals by Derek Allison who was assisted by Jo Cleary, or in club groups using the same controls but with their own training exercises.  Participants paid a small fee, and the cost to the Foundation was minimal, with Trustee effort restricted to supervising the excellent plans prepared by Derek.  We did a short survey of participants afterwards, and will be reviewing the results to decide whether to the day should be repeated in future.  Any further feedback is welcome.

Peter Palmer’s autobiography

It is just over 13 years now since Peter Palmer left us. For many orienteers, his name is synonymous with the annual Junior Team Relay. But who was he and why was he so important to Orienteering in Britain?

In his remaining years he penned an autobiography which his son, Stephen Palmer, recently found again and has generously agreed to offer it in return for donations to the Orienteering Foundation.
