Here's our grant-funded programme for the coming term. It includes presentations and sessions helping you learn more (or pass on what you know) about our sport and provides a rare opportunity to socialise and train with fellow orienteers. NEW (19 Sep): training programme added
Club nights will run from 18.30 to 20.00 each Thursday. On some dates they may carry on later than 20.00.
All sessions will be at the COACH building, French Weir Park. Any outdoor training offered will be in the fields adjacent.
Did you read our Chairman's Chat introducing the series? Link here.
Event pages for each club night any providing further details will be set up in the week that precedes it. Click on the links in green type below if you'd like to learn more about any of the activities.
