Junior Training, October half-term
|When||10.15 am – 3.00pm Monday 23rd October 2017|
|Where:||Haberdashers Boys School, Butterfly Lane, Elstree, Herts, WD6 3AF. Parking will be in the coach park, on Aldenham Road.|
|What||We will be using the sports centre at Haberdashers as our base, and will use the grounds for our practical exercises. We will continue to build on your current level and help your progression to the next level in orienteering, with beginners, advanced and intermediate groups. Juniors under 8 should be accompanied by an adult.|
|Why:||Helped by qualified coaches, you will develop skills which will give you the confidence to enjoy orienteering events more – and enable you to progress from Saturday events in parks to the more difficult regional events, usually held on Sundays. Club training is the first rung on a ladder of progress which could lead you to regional and even national representation.|
|What to bring:||Wear clothes & shoes suitable for running in. Bring a change of shoes & socks as it may be wet underfoot, and waterproof & extra warm clothing if it is a cold & wet day.
Drinks & lunch
You must bring a signed medical/consent form if you have not already done one previously.

|Equipment:||All maps & compasses will be provided but if you have your own compass and dibber, please bring them. Activities & games will be suitable for the age & experience of the participants.|
