Club Training

South Yorkshire Orienteers are one of the most successful orienteering club in the country.

Kris Jones has recently been appointed our club coach and is establishing a regular training programme for the club, this will start this autumn with training taking place fortnightly on a Thursday evening, switching to Saturdays over the winter.  The sessions will be a combination of technique and physical training and are suitable for people of all ages, experience and ability.

SYO also offers coaching for beginners alongside our Saturday afternoon events. See the fixtures list for a list of these events.

We are not just interested in developing athletes - we also want to develop coaches. If you are either a qualified coach, or are interested either in coaching or becoming qualified, please contact us.
