welcome to raul ferra – coach website

With this website, I intend to offer all members of the orienteering community a place of reference where to find different resources related to orienteering training. Its design is totally dynamic, so the content shown here will evolve over time, depending on the areas of interest that arise. The contents published on this website are, for the most part, self-created and freely accessible. If you want to collaborate or have any suggestions regarding content or methods, please, do not hesitate in contacting. I hope that what you find here is of your interest and helps you, at least, to reflect on the training process in the best sport in the world: orienteering.
