Scottish Team preparation for the World Schools Champs

Scottish Team at the World Schools 2015

The Orienteering Foundation also made a grant to the Scottish Team in relation to the World Schools Championships.  However this was to enhance the overall experience by getting the whole team together for a weekend prior to the competition.  The nature of the championships is such that teams comprise athletes selected from leading schools in each class, as well as a diverse set of individuals in a ‘select’ team.

The pre-competition weekend provided an excellent opportunity to

  • allow all the team to get to know each other
  • establish a good working relationship between all the athletes and the coaching team
  • do some final orienteering training
  • give out and discuss final event details, and prepare the juniors for the trip abroad.
