Becoming a Coach

Coaching is a rewarding means of contributing to your sport and to the development of future orienteers.  Qualified and motivated coaches are always in demand both at a club and State level.  If you are interested in training as a coach, please read the information below and make contact with the NSW Coaching Director - This email address is being protected from spambots.

SPORTING SCHOOLS

Here are testimonials from some of the sites:

(1) "I think this is incredible. I want this introduced to the whole school. Every kid can benefit from this. It is so good." - Shortland PS.

(2) "Thank you so much for an excellent series of orienteering. The feedback from staff and children has been excellent and the children are always asking when they can do it again. It is the most engaged the students have been in any AASC program." - Our Lady of the Rosary, Waitara.

(3) "This is what some of my boys need. They have really focused like I've never seen them do before - for anything." - Charlestown East PS.

If you are a school wishing to do orienteering, or a coach wishing to deliver orienteering, you must first register via the Sporting Schools website. Please email Jim Mackay (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with any queries.
