In Florida over the course of a school year the two clubs will get some 60 different high schools sending their JROTC teams to our competitions. Some come well-prepared with experienced coaches and student leaders leading the way. However for many neither the instructors nor the newly-minted student leaders have a clue about competitive orienteering. This slide show
is an attempt to bridge the gap between orienteering as a map and compass game, the common perception, and orienteering as a competitive sport, the reality. Feel free to review and use it if you wish and yes we are always open to constructive suggestions.
