Sass Peepre Orienteering Training for Teens 2016

SPOTT 2016

Sass Peepre Orienteering Training for Teens (SPOTT) 2016

Thursdays, February 4 – June 23, 2016

at 17:00 Pacific Standard Time  (18:00 MST, 20:00 EST, 21:00 AST)

SPOTT 2016 is an on-line program for orienteers aged 13 – 18. SPOTT builds smarter, more prepared orienteers through off-season, on-line discussions, activities, and games. SPOTT also seeks to expand the teen athlete’s orienteering community by extending the opportunity to interact with orienteers of like ages from just summer to year-round.

It is anticipated that most participants will be at the “Train to Train” stage, with some being at the “Learn to Compete” stage (see Orienteering Canada’s LTAD Guide).

SPOTT aims to facilitate the goals of teen orienteers in whatever role you seek, be it athlete (HPP or other), coach, event organizer, or mapper, as you continue to grow in orienteering. SPOTT 2016 will provide coaching and arm-chair orienteering training. Depending on interest levels, SPOTT could include some exposure to mapping, course setting and event organization.

Athletes in the SPOTT program will meet on-line about once every 2 weeks for one hour from February 4th through June 23rd.  This schedule accommodates any potential school holidays around Easter. The sessions will be from 5 – 6PM Pacific Standard Time. That is 6-7pm Mountain Standard Time, 8-9PM Eastern Standard Time and 9-10PM Atlantic Standard Time. These sessions will include discussions, map study, Catching Features games, and other orienteering training activities. In addition, SPOTT will use a variety of social networking tools to develop a nation-wide community of juniors who want to actively pursue orienteering.

The program fee is $70 ($60 for additional siblings in the same household), which will help defray the costs of program preparation and delivery. Sass Peepre funds will cover the remaining program costs.

Register online at The deadline is February 3.
