Orienteering Training

Training for orienteering includes not only physical training as you would do to prepare for running, skiing, or mountain bike races, but also mental training so that you start to see the two-dimensional orienteering map in three dimensions.

This section of the website will include training tips and techniques that will help you improve your skill, and, as a consequence, your enjoyment of the sport.


If you are a club leader looking for a set of skill circuits to train beginner orienteers, Junior Coach Erin Schirm has shared the circuits he used with high school students in spring 2014.
