Joe Sunley - JIRCs Sept 2017

Strong performances from the WCOC contingent helped the North West Junior Squad achieve an impressive 2nd place (behind Scotland) at the JIRCs this weekend. For full results (and more pictures) click here.

Many thanks to the organisers (SN and GO) and to all the NWJS coaches.

Fundraising: WCOC Juniors work hard to raise funds for their activities by holding regular cake stalls and organising special fundraising events. The support of WCOC members at these is much appreciated. The juniors also contribute to the club and promote the sport of orienteering by planning and helping at events and coaching, including working with local schools.

Grants: WCOC are extremely proud to have a very strong  and successful Junior section - which is testament to the coaching team, strong support from volunteers in the club, parents and local schools. In order to reach their full potential we recognise that they need support and do what we can to provide this. Click here for a summary of how WCOC have supported them and hope to continue to do.
