New Orienteering Canada resources for Junior/Beginner programs
Orienteering Canada is excited to share the results of Phase 1 of the development of a National Athlete Development Matrix (ADM), which is a document that describes what skills athletes should be learning at each stage of development. Big thanks to Jeff Teutsch and Kate Knapp for their work so far. We encourage feedback (via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in person to Kate Knapp, Jeff Teutsch, or Kitty Jones) as we move this project along.
