Since 2016-17 season, LSRFUR has introduced a centralised training programme, with sessions held every 6 or so weeks in each Region, on a set of topics agreed prior to the season.
Members are free to attend each session in any region - the sessions will be the same at each Regional Meeting so that members are able to attend a different region should they be unable to attend the meeting on their usual night.

The Training schedule can be seen in the table below:
