free. On there you will find all relevant training sessions and events.
If you have any questions then please contact Hamish 07967318501

If you are looking to improve or start your training then you could also join Sportlyser (for more information see the article in the NEWS section) and get some support from coaches and club members in achieving your goals. If you want help with setting goals then please contact myself or one of the other PFO coaches so that your goals are SMART ones.

You do not have to be a member of PFO to come to the training nights. Come along and have a go - wear loose comfortable clothes e.g. track suit trousers + trainers. Sessions will be suitable for people who have never tried orienteering or have done a little and want to improve. They are a mixture of skills + fitness training. Sessions will involve learning how to navigate using simple exercises indoors and outdoors (weather and light permitting) also physical exercises to build your body strength and flexibility.

All ages are welcome. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

Orienteering is an excellent way to get fit, learn to read a map and see a wide variety of places. It is a sport can take place in all sorts of places, from town parks to open hillsides and even in city centres.
There is time for a chat over tea, coffee or juice (with plenty of biscuits!) afterwards. The social time afterwards is a good chance to have a chat and get to know your fellow orienteers a bit better.

If you have any questions please contact Hamish on 07967 318501 or
I look forward to seeing you.
