We currently aim to run monthly coaching sessions. If you are brand new to orienteering then these sessions can be a great way to get started and meet other people. We also provide excellent coaching for juniors and adults looking to improve their skills on any level of course. Karen Ashworth provides training for primary school aged children and Rob Lines provides training for anyone of secondary school age or adults, who can run at least run an orange on their own.
We also offer one to one mentoring and shadowing for older children and adults on an ad hoc basis. Please contact Tim Hulley if you would like to enquire about this. If you are brand new to orienteering then this can really help.
Coaching sessions start at 10am and precede a club orienteering race, so you can test out your new skills on a course. The training aims to be finished just before 11am and starts are kept open for those attending coaching.
There’s no additional fee to pay on top of the main event, and as always our friendly bunch of coaches will have plenty of tips and techniques to pass on. Please let Anna Chapman know if you would like to attend.
