The skills and experience of everyone in PFO are different, therefore everyone's training needs differ.
If there is any specific topic that you feel that you would like some training in then please let Gillian know.
South London Orienteers (SLOW) have produced a series of eight videos showing different techniques used in orienteering.
The videos are presented by different athletes from the GB Orienteering team and filmed in different locations.

There are a number of useful books available to help improve your orienteering, here are a few suggestions.
There is an Orienteering after school club at Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School.
The introduction to SI session that we held on the 6th March was well received, but we only managed to scratch the surface of SI.
The Orienteering Foundation will be holding another Lakes Coaching Day at Haverthwaite Heights on Saturday 23 November 2019.
A handful of PFO members participated in the last session and found it very beneficial with a great opportunity to train in Lakeland terrain.

We will probably arrange to go as a group which will enable us to tailor the training to the needs of those attending.
