Coaching


Solway Orienteers currently hold a block of four evening sessions in May which aim to provide opportunities for all orienteers to practice relevant skills regardless of what level of experience the participants have. We aim to keep our sessions fun and informative.

Other opportunities to take part in coaching sessions occur throughout the year. If you would like to be kept informed then use the link below to contact the club coaches.
