For anyone interested in orienteering, learning the basic skills can be very important in achieving the sucess that you require. For some, those basic skills may have eroded over time, e.g. you may have had a break from orienteering, and you may wish to refresh your skills.

A series of videos are available below which give an introduction to orienteering as well as giving instruction on the basic skills of orienteering.

EPOC Coaching

Everyone is welcome to our Orienteering events and activities. 

If you would like any coaching, formal or informal please contact me. I can also train and assess for the National Navigation Award Scheme Young Star Awards. 

A good way to improve for many people is by orienteering with someone else, if you're interested in shadowing or being shadowed or simply having a post race discussion with someone else please get in touch.
