WCH Orienteering and COVID-19

Following the British Orienteering statement yesterday, we are sad to say that all orienteering activities, including training events and coaching is now suspended.  We hope to get back out in the forest as soon as we can but will follow the official advice.  See below for the BOF statement:

Suspension of all orienteering activities
It is with great sadness that we are now in a position where all orienteering activities in the UK have to be suspended with immediate effect.
We are aware that the Coronavirus outbreak is a very fluid and rapidly changing situation. We will, therefore, continue to follow advice from Public Health England, World Health Organisation and both local and national governments on this matter and will keep the orienteering family updated as appropriate.
We know how great the sport is at supporting each other and we ask that you continue to pull together (albeit virtually) during this difficult time. We will do our best to get you back in the forests as soon as it is safe to do so.

Chasers club coaching day #1

Over 20 Chasers took part in today’s coaching session held on Brereton Spurs, which was the first of a series of 5 over the spring and summer months.  Led by Mike B, we focused on simplification techniques, and then finished the morning with a clock relay.  A really great morning, with thanks to everyone that helped out during the day.  The next in the series is on 21st April on Shoal Hill – all club members welcome.
