Opportunities for coaching and training are available for orienteers of all ages and abilities.
Regular training in 2017
For 2017 we are starting area based program to make training accessible on a regular basis to all our members, from juniors to veterans. You don’t have to be aspiring to make a state team to enjoy getting fitter, improving navigation skills, and the camaraderie of a group with common goals.
Locations for training on the East and West side of the Perth will be advised each week so you can fit in a regular training session with your other commitments no matter where you live or work.
We hope that this give all our members who want to get fit and get a bit of coaching the opportunity to do so at a location that is not too far away. Activities are intended to suit all ages ranging from school age through to senior ranks. It is not intended to be competitive in any way but to give you the opportunity to get fitter while enjoying being part of a group of orienteers.

Orienteers wanting to improve their fitness are welcome to join the group that runs regularly on Tuesday afternoons at 5.30pm. The meeting point is the rotunda on Hale Oval in Kings Park and people of similar ability usually run together.
OWA has qualified coaches who are happy to help members with programs specifically tailored to needs, whether you are a new member who wants to learn basic navigational skills or an experienced orienteer wanting to peak for a specific event or carnival.
