INCURSIONS An ASC accredited orienteering coach (with current WwCC or Teacher Registration) will attend your school and run a series of orienteering activity sessions. These sessions form a strong basis for entry into and participation in club events and school championships. Unit plans, assessment criteria and suggested reporting comments are provided. Due to the limitations of campus size, coaches will work with one class at a time.
