Girls Group Grows

Friday, 26 September 2014

 FOG (Focus On Girls) provides girls aged 10 to 16 years with the chance to meet other girls interested in orienteering. They have been meeting as a group now since May.

A core of around 10 are regular attendees with a further 10 joining intermittently depending on after school commitments. There's a passion for charging around in the bush. Off-track running is their forte! FOG will reconvene into Term 4 with more challenges ahead. New girls wanting to join or if you just want to find out a little more, text Toni on 0411 968 001. Scroll down for more exciting news items including the Easter 2016 Logo Competition where you can win $50. Entries close in October.

Thursday, 7 August 2014

FOCUS ON GIRLS Series 3 - Recommences this Friday 8 August

Focus on Girls is a group training session specifically for girls. Current membership includes both experienced and developing orienteers. The sessions are built around fun focused orienteering sessions with friends. Series 1 & 2 the training group was around 12 to 15 girls from various primary and high schools around Canberra. The aim is to have loads of fun but to learn and practice lots about the adventurous challenges that orienteering offers.


The FOG session are offered as an adjunct to the Blue Lightning Squad training sessions which occur every Saturday at 9.30am before the Saturday event.

If Fridays don't suit all, an additional FOG session early next week will be held as well. So for any keen 10-16 year old girls interested but cant make this Friday, email todavid@webone.com.au with preferred day. Those that can make Friday, RSVP too please.
