The NSW Stingers is the elite orienteering squad from New South Wales competing in the National Orienteering League.

The Stingers are self-funded, and range in age from senior high school students to "veterans" in their 40s who have maintained their skills and fitness levels.

Their coach for 2021 is former Swiss junior coach Renate Leuenberger-Widmer.

"Reni" brings incredible qualifications and experience to the role. She has a Masters Degree in Human Movement and Sport and taught science and physical education.

As an orienteering coach, she guided regional teams in her native Switzerland for several years, and coached the Swiss Junior Team for 2 years, during which they won 10 gold medals at the 2016 & 2017 Junior World Championships.

She recently relocated to Australia with her husband, David, and son Nino, and has joined the Bennelong Northside club in Sydney.

NOL events in 2021 are: Ballarat (Mar 13-14), Easter (Apr 2-5), Renmark (Apr 24-25) and Broulee (May 15-16).
