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.

Always like seeing different approaches and emphases.

youth.orienteering.org (ref on p36) seems to be inactive - did my eyes/fingers misbehave?

Since that was an IOF page, maybe you want this link instead?

Thanks for the catch Michael. I made this slide show up back in 2018 and then sat on it for almost four years until motivated recently to resurrect it. I did update and correct some things but neglected to check those links. Your eyes did not misbehave. If anyone knows where that site went I'd appreciate hearing about it.

https://betterorienteering.org/ (JanetT's links are in there, too) just came to my attention again recently, and there are also the new online orienteering learning and coaching classes on OUSA' education portal https://education.orienteeringusa.org/, especially for those who learn better through interaction with others and note taking and such

Hi there,
according to the "Internet Archive", the youth.orienteering.org site was taken down sometime between January and August 2019, however the last content seems to have been added in March 2016. The last working version is available here:
