Are you a high schooler or older and love orienteering and just want to get “more reps”? Do you like the social aspect of orienteering (listening to your peers make excuses as to why their day went so wrong)? Do you want to learn from some of the most experienced orienteers in the entire USA? Perhaps you are even curious about what it takes to make it on Team USA and want to hear some advice on the subject. Do you…never mind, I am sure you must want to do this. But what exactly is “this”?
After the race at UW, come meet at the finish line near the training sign. As a group, we will all leave to a “remote location” and do some drills. After we will hang out and snack and chat. The goal is to talk about strategy, implement these strategies in a few drills, then talk about it all. Oh yeah..and go FAST!
Meeting time: 1245
Starting time: 1PM
Finishing time: 3PM
If you plan on attending this event, please sign up for an early race time at UW.
You must RSVP to this event. This is the only way we know how many supplies to get (and if we can start early should everyone arrive). RSVP no later than Tuesday December 12th.
RSVP is done by emailing John or Caroline at cascadeOtraining@gmail.com
and simply saying you are coming to the training.

“Summer moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and do some orienteering on a sunny Wednesday evening once in a while, you could miss it.”
