Schools are sometimes surprised that students who sometimes aren't active in other sports, take to orienteering with a passion.  Our state schools team has female and male teams in two age classes (under 15 and over 15), but this competition will be run in year levels.<br></p><p>For those who haven't orienteered before, Orienteering Victoria is providing further opportunities for schools and students to prepare for the event:</p><ul><li>A coaching session at 9:30 am on the event day to provide some basic tips – free of charge.</li><li>Prior training or coaching at your school earlier in Term 2 – costs negotiable with OV.</li><li>Access to the new national secondary school resource kit that you can use to prepare attendees prior to the event – free of charge.</li></ul><p>If your school is interested in any of these options please contact the OV Schools Officer on the details below.<br></p><p>This is the first official trial for selection for the Victorian Schools Orienteering team who will compete in the National Schools Championships and Australian Orienteering Championships in the term 3-4 break in Tasmania - <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7m4ECG09vDk" target="_blank">watch video</a><br></p><p>For those who enjoy the day we can also offer access to other events and training opportunities.<br></p><p>The more detailed flyer is attached with all details<br></p><p>Useful links:</p><p>Click here for <a href="https://aus01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https://www.vicorienteering.asn.au/get-involved/schools/schools-championships/&data=04%7c01%7cschool.sport.victoria%40education.vic.gov.au%7c85e2dbffb20849c5d46808d8f29d40d4%7cd96cb3371a8744cfb69b3cec334a4c1f%7c0%7c0%7c637526105390881998%7cUnknown%7cTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7c2000&sdata=rL8tTwVH6uqRgGRVHEaZtZ6XSSkluC3I%2BRsVi5mxtO0%3D&reserved=0">event website</a></p><p>Click here for <a href="https://aus01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https://forms.gle/doVueTLVtkmwWJ9ZA&data=04%7c01%7cschool.sport.victoria%40education.vic.gov.au%7c85e2dbffb20849c5d46808d8f29d40d4%7cd96cb3371a8744cfb69b3cec334a4c1f%7c0%7c0%7c637526105390881998%7cUnknown%7cTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7c2000&sdata=Xruchvp3cbt6cl4V/x/bVSjtt%2BUDPs0AYs0Up9faHH4%3D&reserved=0">entry form</a><br></p></div>
