2010 COF Conference

The COF conference is organized by the COF Board of Directors. It’s an ideal opportunity to bring Canadian orienteers together to share information and to learn from interesting, topical speakers. It’s also a great time to learn about and get involved with the priorities and projects of the COF and to provide your ideas and feedback. Ideas for future conference topics are always welcome.

The long term athlete development (LTAD) model is changing the way that sport is being taught in Canada (www.canadiansportforlife.ca). LTAD is an inclusive concept that encourages all individuals to be involved in lifelong physical activity and articulate the need for all children to be given a solid foundation in physical, tactical and mental capacities upon which to build their performance abilities. As have most other sports in Canada, the COF is creating a LTAD model that is specific to the sport of orienteering. This is an exciting development for the sport in Canada and will provide valuable guidance to how orienteering is presented, coached and organized in Canada. Come and find out the latest.
