We could all do with a bit of coaching to improve our orienteering skills, whether new to the sport or a seasoned veteran! We've now firmed up some dates for a new series of TAY coaching sessions, open to all club members.
Junior coaching series
The East of Scotland Orienteering Association runs a series of coaching for juniors which are open to TAY junior members.
The club coaches have been busy working on the coaching programme for 2017. The provisional programme is four Saturday sessions using quality Perthshire areas - locations TBC. The dates will be 22 April, 6 May, 3 June and 10 June.
Scottish Orienteering runs "Teaching Orienteering" courses throughout the year at a variety of locations. See here for the latest schedule

Scottish Orienteering CPD Day
Following April's session the next in the SOA's Creative Coach sessions will be held at South Creag Vinean, near Dunkeld on Saturday 3 September.
Block of four coaching sessions for club members
We are delighted to announce the dates for our next block of coaching sessions, starting Saturday 20 August. These dates have been chosen specifically to fit around TAY and SOA orienteering events.
Coaching session focuses on contours
Sunday's coaching session at Dalguise (session #3 in a four-session block) was well-received. We focused on contours and included a novel tattie contour competition this week and finished with a "place and chase" exercise - which required very close attention to the map!
Bookings now open for the 2016 Volunteers’ Weekend, Glenmore Lodge 13-15 May.
We're looking at organising a club away weekend in the Aviemore area for members this coming September - to include top-quality coaching activities for all levels and a generally sociable time! See email of 15 Jan or contact
