WOLF Training 3/4 and Grantown Grammar Taster
Week 3 of WOLF training! It's nearly here! We would also like to welcome any Grantown Grammar School pupils who are interested in having a go :)
2 groups again: one group suitable for younger juniors/anyone who's started more recently to the sport and the other group for those who are happy adventuring off the paths and want to practise and improve skills at this level.
Group warm-up at 6.30pm, finished by 7.30pm.
Adults remain responsible for their child, but this doesn't mean you have to run round together/be in the same group! As always, the coaching is set up and risk assessed according to ability, with participants' safety and enjoyment at the core of the planning, but we require parents/guardians to come along for the session too. If this becomes a hurdle for you to take part, do get in touch!

Pre Event Info
Over the winter months this is in the dark, so you need a torch*. We go out orienteering, usually with a navigational focus. Call it training or just playing, it’s as hard as you want it to be, both physically and technically!
Newcomers are welcome and there is always someone to explain things and help you get started.
*We have three 1000 lumen headtorches for use by club members at Tuesday night O. Particularly aimed at relative newcomers - these will get you on a level playing field with the pros!
Meet at 6:30 prompt. Please come appropriately dressed for the weather on the night, the sort of thing you would wear if you were going for a trail run.
You need to be back by 7:30pm.
£2 Adults, £1 Juniors for BASOC or other orienteering club members.
£3 Adults, £1.50 Juniors for non members.
