Coaching Home Page

Welcome to the Main Club Coaching page.

Here is an overview of the coaching available to club members

There are new sub pages for technical information, aimed at newcomers and those wanting a reference document. These cover Map Legends, Control Descriptions, and Guides for using EMIT.

Just to get you started why not try this control description quiz from the Maprunner website?


Moravian Club Coaching Programme


The Moravian Coaching Team - All UKCC qualified orienteering coaches, invite all Moravian club/school orienteers to any or all of the coaching sessions planned for 2016. Each session will focus on specific techniques or skills and provide differentiated exercises to enable all participants to learn, practise or improve.


We will not be catering for complete beginners so to get the most from this coaching you should be regularly competing in events such as the Moravian Saturday League or district events. For the more experienced orienteer, these sessions are a chance to review and refine your techniques  - and maybe learn how to shave those vital seconds off your times.


There will be a small charge to cover costs. To help with planning and resourcing, we’d appreciate an email/phone call to say you intend coming. Any questions – just get in touch. We look forward to seeing you.
