The exercises are ready to go and ready to be used and they are adapted to the school’s or club’s environment. The preparation time is minimal.
The exercises can, according to the weather circumstances, be held in or outside.
You can start at once with the elementary exercises. People of all ages can be challenged with these exercises series because of the increasing difficulty degree and the constructive nature. (see concept).
The exercises become more difficult when the distances between the objects are increased.
The package of exercises has no need for a specific map of a school area. It allows learning some of the basic skills.
The exercises can be held on the school or club grounds, within the teaching period, without distant displacements.
The duration is controllable. A teacher or trainer cannot exceed the admitted time limit. The exercises are well limited and executable within a period of teaching. The exercises are well defined, secure and executable within one hour of teaching.
The exercises set is usable for large groups and there is little or no lost time. A class can count up to 30 students. A normal starting interval for an orienteering event is for instance 2 minutes. In school the lesson would already be over before the last student got started. The active learning time should be made in such a way that as much students as possible can start at the same time and that they should stand still as little as possible.
Young people can sometimes be hard to motivate. For that reason the exercises are made in an extra challenging and fun way, including adventurous and playful elements in different degrees of difficulty, therefor the emphasis on the physical aspect is experienced unconsciously.
“Cheating” and “sabotage” are avoided by the use of a simple control system.
The exercises can be used as warming up or as a training activity by club members.
The exercises can be done as a competition against the clock.
The exercises can be used for relays.
