We are hiring!

Kingdom of Fife Orienteers are looking to hire a Level 1 (or higher) qualified orienteering coach to lead an exciting new project to introduce young people in Dunfermline to the sport of orienteering.

The coach will plan three hour-long coaching sessions designed to equip young people with the skills needed to tackle Yellow or Orange courses. Soon after the end of the three weeks the young people, and their families, will be able to take part in a Saturday KFO event staged nearby.

The project will use KFO’s brand new map of Duloch & Calaismuir in Dunfermline and will recruit participants from surrounding schools, using links with Active Schools Co-ordinators and Facebook advertising.

We will run two groups. That means there will be six hours of coaching to deliver in total. This can be done over three weeks or six weeks at the coach’s discretion.

KFO members will be able to assist with registration and set-up. The club can provide the necessary equipment, maps and handouts. The coach will be responsible for the design and delivery of the programme and for safe-guarding responsibilities..

This project is ready to start once the coach is in place.

For full details or to express an interest contact Club Secretary Matthew Clark on info1@kfo.org.uk by 10th September.

Further information

The club will pay the coach £15 per hour and allow time for preparation and clear-up. Overall this project will take a total of 24 hours of work.

The post will report to the Chair of KFO and the club committee. The Chair and committee will support the work of the coach on this project, including running the follow-up family event.

The coach will need to be a member of the PVG scheme, and the club will pay for registration if necessary.

Orienteering and KFO

E Lomond E Lomond

 

Orienteering is an exciting foot race, often through forests, navigating from one point to another on a predefined course printed on an orienteering map. The aim is to navigate around all the points in the shortest time; the fun is in avoiding getting lost, in order to beat your rivals. All ages can take part, from age 2 to over 90 years.

Kingdom of Fife Orienteers (KFO) is a small club. We cover the whole of Fife, with members as far north as Gauldry, as far west as Saline and as far south as Dalgety Bay, and beyond. The club always welcomes beginners - no experience needed.

Orienteering can take place almost anywhere from the remotest forest and countryside to urban parks and school playgrounds. It’s a great sport for anyone who just loves to be outdoors. It is also a very good way for runners, joggers and walkers to improve their navigation skills.

Not for nothing is orienteering sometimes known as ‘The Thought Sport’! Decisions are needed from even before reaching the Start of the course right through to punching the Finish. These decisions are usually based on information received from what can be seen on the ground, information received from the map, personal navigation skills, personal fitness, confidence in abilities and so on.

The best place to get started is at a local event, especially an introductory event near to you. At most events you can just turn up and have a go. You have to register and pay the fee and there will be someone at registration who will help guide you as what to do. When you get to the Start the adventure begins. We hope you enjoy the experience and will want to join KFO, see the Membership page.
