IntrO course for teachers after the Easter holidays 2023
We are hoping to run an IntrO course for teachers and others working with children such as scout leaders. This will take place after the Easter holidays 2023 and consists of two 3 hour sessions. At the end of the course, you will have all the skills and resources needed to teach the basics of orienteering to a group of children. There will be a minimal fee to help cover costs. Further information from the Maroc club secretary.

How to get started with Orienteering
Orienteering is an outdoor activity where you walk or run a course via a series of controls or checkpoints, using a map for guidance. Most events take place in the Scottish countryside, so you can connect with nature and enjoy being out in our forests and glens. If you prefer towns and cities, you can try urban orienteering, which provides different scenery and challenges.
If you like being active outdoors in Scotland and enjoy a challenging experience, orienteering is the perfect sport for you. You can enjoy it as an individual, a family, or a group. All you need is a pair of trainers and comfortable clothing. Events take place throughout the year and many of these are totally accessible to people of differing levels of fitness and mobility.
The Trophy is the Annual UK Small Clubs Orienteering Competition.
Event held on Sunday 16th October 2022 at Tulliallan & Devilla, Fife. Hosted by Forth Valley Orienteers. Fifty Eight clubs competed in the Heats durung Feb/March this year and fifteen in Sunday's Final.
