South London Orienteers (SLOW) have produced a series of eight videos showing different techniques used in orienteering.
The videos are presented by different athletes from the GB Orienteering team and filmed in different locations.
Last year, Sport England awarded South London Orienteers £3,850 for a project to help teenagers develop the orienteering skills needed for more technical courses.
This is their “Get Up to Speed” project.
As part of this project, SLOW have produced a series of eight short videos. The videos are presented by athletes from the GB Orienteering team and are filmed in different locations.
The videos aim is to help juniors deal with more technically demanding courses, but they can also be used by newcomers wanting to “get up to speed”. Each video focuses on a specific orienteering skill.
One video per week is to be launched each Friday at 5pm during January and February.
The video release is linked to races and coaching sessions taking place across the South East: watch a film, focus on a technique and have a successful run.
All the videos were produced by SLOW Development Officer Sarah Brown, with editing by Katherine Bett of Southern Navigators.
