Orienteering for Primary & Secondary Schools

Orienteering is a fantastic outdoor activity that combines running/walking with navigation (traditionally using a map and compass). Participants use their speed and coordination to locate a number of flags located around a course in the shortest time possible. Participants can time their run or compete against each other as part of a competitive event.

READY TO GO ORIENTEERING is a new orienteering training initiative that aims to train and equip participants with the skills and ability to teach the fundamentals of the sport of orienteering.

Meath LSP are proud to host two new  “Ready to Go Orienteering” training initiatives in Meath

Ideally suited for Teachers, Youth Work leaders, School Liaison officers and Community Leaders, the 6-hour training will equip you with the skills and ability to teach the fundamentals of orienteering to others.

Orienteering develops many skills for children & young people including problem solving, teamwork, decision making and self-awareness.
