March training session - meet outside Bell's Sports Centre, Perth in time for a 6.30pm sharp start.
Our monthly sessions provide an opportunity for club members and potential members to meet and train together to develop skills and fitness. Activities will vary from month to month but will typically last for an hour and will include a range of simple activities that will be flexible so as to suit all ages, levels of experience and fitness. Please note: these sessions are not coaching per se and children attending will need to remain under the close supervision of their parent or carer.
Launch of new permanent course
Representatives from local youth groups gathered on Kinnoull Hill in Perth on 28 January to try their hand at orienteering. This was the final stage in a joint project between Tay Landscape Partnership and local orienteering club Tayside Orienteers.
We are very sorry to have had to postpone this event due to very wet conditions and felling in part of the forest. The hope is to have it later in the year.
Find out more about opportunities through Scottish Orienteering's National Centre for coaching and training, including for teachers, youth leaders, staff in outdoor centres etc.
Dates set for our next block of adult and junior coaching
Dates have now been set in March for coaching for members who have previously expressed an interest. Looking forward to these sessions and helping you to develop your skills. Additional spaces may be available for others.
