What opportunities does our club offer to help members improve and progress through organised training?

See our events listing for more details about the following.

From Autumn through to Spring we have:

JOG - on successive Saturday afternoons, we run our ever popular JOG sessions for juniors, improvers and established orienteers.

Training evenings

- Previously we have had a series of grant-funded Club Nights at the COACH centre, Taunton, which included a training session with a family focus.

- We have run a summer training programme in each of the last two summers. The last one was a 11 week programme of training near Taunton and on the Blackdowns on Thursday evenings between late April to mid July 2018.

Schemes & resources

Buddy scheme

We try where possible to pair people up who can help each other or allow those with relatively high skills, confidence and experience to pass those things on. Scheme contact: Angela Modica.

"Skilling Up" training articles

Richard Sansbury 30-part series is highly recommended for those looking to improve at Orange level or above.
