The dates for the next few sessions are shown below:

Sat 17 Nov 2018 - Rewell Woods, with thanks to Southdowns Orienteers.

Car parking is beside the A29 on Fairmile Bottom. This is a fast moving road, approach from the roundabout where the A284 meets the A29. The car park is at the bottom of the hill on the left, grid ref SU990 096. The theme is compass and steep-sided valleys!

Sat 8 Dec 2018 - Winterfold, with thanks to SLOW.


Training starts at 10.15am ready to run, unless stated otherwise. We start with a warm-up, then technical exercises to develop our skills. We stop for lunch (bring a packed lunch) at about 12.30pm and then finish the afternoon with some form of team exercise to put into practice our new skills.

Exercises are planned to ensure that juniors return regularly to our coaching team for feedback during the session. Sometimes we work in pairs and juniors are often shadowed by a coach.

Facilities are basic – there are generally no toilets. First aid cover is always provided.
