Club Training & Coaching

A Club Training event at Treeton Woods

On Sat 16th Mar 2019 from 13:00


Description

There is a coaching and training session on Saturday 16th March at Treeton.  Experienced orienteers will enjoy the navigational challenge of the open area with interesting vegetation and contour detail while newcomers and younger juniors are well catered for with the extensive path network and obvious water features. Sessions are suitable for all ages and abilities.

Please meet at the start of the public footpath at the end of Falconer Lane (nearest postcode S13 9ZL). Please park considerately on nearby residential roads. 

If you would like to attend please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Thursday 14th March so that we can ensure we have enough coaches available to comply with safety rations and know what resources to prepare.

The sessions will run from 1pm to 2.30pm. Please arrive by 12.50pm so we can start promptly at 1pm. Parents who wish to accompany their children on the activities are encouraged or alternatively are very welcome to join the adult's group and have a go themselves. Children under 8 and those who can’t complete a white course on their own must be accompanied by an adult at all times. All participants should wear full leg cover, sturdy footwear and should bring a water bottle and waterproofs.

Cost is £3 per session to non-members, free to club members.

Venue Details

Two areas of mostly runnable sloping woodland linked by 100m of path.  A good contrast is provided by a largely open gently contoured area on the other side of Treeton Dyke lake that was added to the map in 2008 by Tim Tett.

Safety & risk

A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event. If a competitor has a pre-existing medical condition that they think should be declared, please complete a medical form at enquiries. The sealed envelope will only be opened in an emergency.

Photography

SYO has an agreed policy on the taking of photographs at events, based on national guidance. This provides a sensible balance between the benefits and risks associated with the taking and use of images. If you are unsure about acceptable practice, please speak to the event organiser. Read our photography policy.
