Training and Club Nights
At the moment, the only training session that we run takes place every Tuesday evening from Bournemouth University sports centre at 6pm. We have a three-week rotation of short-hill reps; medium-hill reps and then 4 x 1k reps. These are focused more on the physical aspects of Orienteering. During the winter months this takes place around the nearby streets, but once the clocks go forward, we’re out on Talbot Heath. These sessions are always followed by a social in the Uni bar where we talk about the recent events we’ve been to, and anything else that is worth chatting about. If you’re interested in coming along (and we cater for all fitness levels!) please contact either Ian Sayer or Jason Falconer .
The Club are considering expanding the training sessions to include orienteering-skills training.
Club Nights are run on a monthly basis throughout the year organised alternately by Wessex OC and sister club Wimborne OC. During the winter months, these take the form of Wessex Region Night League events, but in the Spring/Summer become informal Score or other format events. All these are listed on the Events calendar.
