Why should you try orienteering ?
Our goals is to grow and nurture a community based outdoor program in Airdrie where kids can develop competence, confidence and motivation to be active outside for life. We use orienteering as a tool to teach navigation, we play games to have fun and develop basic running skills, agility & endurance. We want to foster a family-oriented outdoor program to engage not only the kids but youth leaders and parents as well. Our program is based on the goals and principles of the Canadian Physical Literacy & Long-Term Athlete Development model. Each session includes 3 stations: physical literacy games, agility/endurance skills and navigation stations.
Denis completed his education degree in 2005 and has been teaching Physical Education every since. Since becoming a teacher, he has coached a variety of sports including basketball, volleyball, track and field, golf and orienteering. He loves hanging out with his children either biking, hiking and golfing outdoors. Denis is enthusiastic about devloping physical literacy and enjoys adventure races where he can use his map reading and orienteering skills. He is thrilled about the the new Outdoor Adventure Airdrie program and is looking forward to coaching and leading the program.
