Last Updated: Wed 12 Sep 2018

Our monthly coaching sessions are open to everyone. If you are brand new to orienteering then these sessions can be a great way to get started. Juniors, their parents and other adults are most welcome.

Coaching sessions start at 9.15am and precede a SOG. SOGS are informal local orienteering events and provide some great orienteering experiences without having to travel too far. The training aims to be finished by 10.30am so that coaches and trainees can make the last start time of 11.00am for the main event. There’s no additional fee to pay on top of the SOG, and as always our friendly bunch of coaches will have plenty of tips and techniques to pass on. Please let Rob Lines know if you would like to attend.
