2019 Summer Training sessions

NavdahrunnerMembers Training and Coaching Opportunities

Want to get ready for Navdash or the Easter 2019 Carnival? Your friendly OWA coaches have prepared a short summer coaching series starting 14th February with all sessions focusing on specific orienteering skills. All are welcome from juniors through to veterans. Letting the coach know that you plan to come in advance of each session would be helpful in preparing maps.

Weekly training is available in Perth based in two areas, one west and one east of the city. Training is in the west on THURSDAY evenings while in the east is on FRIDAY evenings. So if you are super keen you can get in two training sessions a week!

All members are welcome to join these sessions, whatever your level of orienteering. Please try to get to the venue 10-15 minutes early so that we are ready to START at 5.45pm

The dates, locations and times are noted below. Be sure to put them in your diary!  Check the venues and activities for each session on the weekly schedule and make sure you sign up for Enews to get any changes and confirmation of the weekly locations.
