Foot orienteering is one of the most popular sports among schoolchildren and young students, and the elements of orienteering are included in the physical education curricula of the whole educational system. In particular in the Ulyanovsk region over 2 thousand senior schoolchildren and students attend orienteering sports sections, perform in competitions and get qualified.
Currently, at the global and European levels new formats of foot orienteering competitions have been introduced, in particular sprint distances, and in Russia the problem of training qualified athletes in the discipline "sprint" has been revealed.
Insufficient coverage of these contradictions in the scientific and methodical literature in the areas of sports training of qualified orienteerers, specializing in "sprint" is a serious gap of the modern training process, especially as the methodology of training of foot orienteerers in classical distances differs significantly from sprint sports training.
The purpose of the present study was to increase effectiveness of the training process in sports orienteering of qualified female sprinters via innovative methods of sports training.
In the present work the authors used innovative methods and methodological approaches from the range of technical and tactical training of qualified female orienteerers.
