Do you want to make your child stronger? Come and play orienteering! Do you want children to be more intelligent? Come and play orienteering! Do you want to make children braver? Come and play orienteering!
This sounds like advertising words, but it is really a reporter's real experience.
Orienteering is a sport recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). World Championships and World Cups are held every year; Orienteering is also an outdoor puzzle game. It is suitable for young and old people, and it is really hard to play without thinking. Internationally, orienteering is described as a combination of chess and marathon, also known as "the sport of the wise". The nature of overlap determines that this project is very suitable for promotion among young people.
At present, there are hundreds of professional and semi-professional orienteering athletes in China, almost all of them are students of the same color, which also proves its scope of application. This Chinese characteristic seems to prove another truth in the opposite direction - no IQ, you can't find the north.
Orienteering is difficult to say - without training, your performance may be more than one hundred and eighty thousand miles worse than that of professional players, and you are as confused as a headless fly on the field; Orienteering is simple and simple. When you travel to a strange city by yourself and find a scenic spot with a traffic map, you are already playing orienteering.
Speaking of this, vigilant parents unconsciously closed their money bags - outdoor sports, which costs money, right? A compass plus a map, a total of ten, which is much cheaper than all kinds of tutoring classes and specialty classes in society, right? If you want to play a little more professionally, you can spend hundreds of yuan to add a pair of professional running shoes at most!
In fact, you don't have to go to the suburbs with mountains and water to play orienteering. You can have fun on the campus or in the surrounding parks. Take Beijing as an example, many primary and secondary schools in Yuanmingyuan Ruins Park, Beijing University of Geosciences, Capital Normal University and Haidian have ready-made maps for you to play a "treasure hunt game".
The promotion of imported products should always be combined with the actual situation in China. In order to popularize this interesting sport, the project management department has invented the 100-meter orienteering project in recent years. As the name implies, 100m orienteering is the "mini version" or "promotion version" of true orienteering. The National Orienteering Championships held in Xichang, Sichuan Province last year also set up this project. According to the reporter's observation, the children were very excited. At the end of the game, these "treasure snatchers" are also eager to discuss the success and failure.
The magic of this project is that it can let you get the effect of exercise unconsciously. Liu Qinghua, a PE teacher at the Sixth Middle School in Taojiang, Hunan Province, told the reporter that when students were allowed to run 800 meters and 1000 meters at ordinary times, the children were unwilling to "turn their mouths upside down", but playing a 100-meter orienteering, they could run thousands of meters unconsciously (100-meter is a straight distance), and did not feel tired.
Compared with many sports, the biggest feature of orientation is that it also needs intelligence. There is a famous saying in orienteering competitions, "The fastest runner is not necessarily the champion". Even if the runners run faster, if the direction is wrong, they may go the other way and fail in the end. Orienteering can train many intelligence factors such as teenagers' ability of map recognition, operational research, planning, sense of space, sense of direction and so on. In the words of Yunnan orienteering athlete He Yue, "orienteering will not make you run into a fool".
In the competition, children must think independently and make choices independently, which will eventually help them develop valuable qualities such as calm and independence. Deng Wei, a physical education teacher at Sichuan University, not only plays orienteering himself, but also drives his children to participate in orienteering. She admitted that every time she threw her teenage daughter into the forest in the suburbs, she had no idea. But when she saw her daughter's excitement after finding a way to return smoothly, she knew that her child had grown up. "Even the grave has been seen. What are the children afraid of?" (Wang Jimin)
