Purchase a Fall practice pass - This link will only worked for logged in club members that have signed the waiver this year. If you're having trouble make sure you are logged in and try signing the waiver.

All participants must fill out a health declaration on Thursday before the practice.

Parking and meeting point:

We will meet in the Pinecrest Recreation Complex parking lot off Cobden Rd. We will meet in the North corner of the lot. See google maps here. There is tons of parking or you can be green and use public transit or take a bike :)

Practice details:

This week we are back on a sprint map.

Once again the exercise will consist of a series of 1.5 - 2km orienteering loops each loop quite different to force you to think about different aspects of 'sprint' orienteering. There will be pin flags out for controls. For the intermediate and advanced participants we will discuss sprint techniques and you will pick a different one to work on on each loop. Team Canada athletes should treat this as a cruise/tempo interval session while trying to be as smooth as possible with their navigation.

Train to Train athletes will get additional direction from coach Jeff but will be doing the same basic exercise.

All participants should also bring a compass (we will have a few extras if you don't have one) and, optionally, a control description holder.
