Opportunities for coaching and training are available for orienteers of all ages and abilities. We'll advise dates, locations and training session over the year in Enews and on the website
Regular training in 2020
During the year OWA provides area based programs 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.
Summer Training Sessions
A short series of summer training sessions are being arranged.
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. Arrive at 5.30 for a 5.45 start.
The focus for this week's training sessions is light orienteering/ hill climbing, with specific focus on control flow and traffic lights in this session.
West side training is on TUESDAY 28 JANUARY at Reabold Hill (parking lot near YMCC hockey clubrooms).
The East side training this week is on FRIDAY 31 JANUARY making use of the Christmas Tree Creek map - Pechey Road in Swan View.
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.

To take advantage of this opportunity contact your club convenor to be put in touch with an appropriate coach.
