Join the Blue Lightning Squad in 2024

Welcome to another great year of training with the Blue Lightning Squad, get excited for some quality training!

Blue Lightning is the Development Squad for junior orienteers in the ACT. Any secondary school student may join Blue Lightning.

The Blue Lightning Management Team this year is:

  • Coach – Tara Melhuish
  • Managers – Deirdre Sharkey and Mike Radajewski

We are excited to work with you throughout the season and hopefully see lots of improvements!

This year orienteering training is on Saturday mornings at 9.30am. This will allow enough time to complete the training, have a discussion and let you have a rest before the Metro Series starts from 10:30am.

ALL high school and older primary school ages are welcome, so let’s try to get as many people coming as we can. Parents are also welcome to join the trainings if they would like to improve their skills! There will be suitable options for those doing moderate navigation right through to those at the junior elite level.

Juniors and their families are also welcome to join regular interval training sessions on Tuesdays at 5.15pm, meeting at ANU South oval. The session varies each week, with options to suit any fitness level.

More information comes out via the Blue Lightning email list. Subscribe here or email if you would like to receive weekly emails with news and details about the upcoming training.

Our next training will be before the Metro Series event at Bruce Ridge on 25 May – please come along for a 9.30am start!
