We have produced a series of eight “Get Up to Speed
” videos, primarily to help teenagers develop the orienteering skills needed for more technical courses. This was enabled by a grant from Sport England, and executed by Sarah Brown with additional financial support from South London Orienteers
The videos are presented by athletes from the GB Orienteering team and are filmed in different locations. Their aim is to help juniors deal with more technically demanding courses, but they can also be used by newcomers wanting to “get up to speed”. Each video focuses on a specific orienteering skill, and there's a trailer for the series here
We are launching one video each week on each Friday during January and February. The first video features Charlotte Ward talking about orientating the map
, and the second has Hector Haines demonstrating how to use the compass
We hope these become a useful resource for anyone trying to promote our sport and develop skills, so please feel free to share or promote them as much as you want.
