Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Tuesday, May 09, 2006
Recruiting juniors to orienteeringHow can you get more juniors? In Norway, they're going to try paying young girls to orienteer.
If you're an F14 and run the O'Festivalen in Norway, you'll get a 500 Norwegian Kronor gift certificate to use at the Trimtex shop. That's about $80.
Kondis reports that:
They chose the girls category because, "when the girls attend, the guys follow." They selected the A-class to encourage participation at that level, and they picked the 14-year group because that is a common age to lose participants from the sport.
Interesting idea. posted by Michael | 8:17 PM
