26.06.2019 - The two introduction orienteering weeks in the Saanenland and the Pays d'Enhaut are already over and they have led 760 children closer to the sport of orienteering.

The team around Ursy Spycher reports two extremely successful weeks. The pupils and teaching staff of all 8 schools were highly motivated doing the various exercises. “Orienteering is cool” such was the clear feedback from the children. A total of 60 kids have qualified for the final of the SOW School cup on 4 August 2019. There, in the framework of the first stage of the Swiss O Week, they will line up at the SportXX start location alongside the "real" Swiss O Week participants. Ursi Spycher and her dedicated team will coach the kids at the start and finish, in order for them to master all the unfamiliar processes of an orienteering competition. In any case, the anticipation of the finalists is already high.

Here the video posted by the local newspaper.
