Participating in 2-3 sports in addition to orienteering


Young athletes in the Learn to Train stage should be participating in a few other sports in addition to orienteering based on their interests. This could be skiing, cross-country and track and field, mountain biking, soccer, hockey, curling, etc. A wide variety of sports at this stage is still very benificial in teaching a wide skill set and reducing injuries from overuse and repetitive strain. The benefit seen from spending more time learning sport specific skills in a single sport is not nearly as valuable learning a wide base of athletic skills at this stage upon which to build sport specific skills in later development.
