Getting Started

If you are new to orienteering a great place to start is at one of our weekend orienteering sessions. These are aimed at introducing new people to the sport as well as helping people improve. They have courses suitable for everyone, and there here are volunteers available to help you. Speak to a member of the registration team and explain your situation and they will be able to suggest a course for you to have a go at. Some of our events are aimed specifically at those new to the sports and are usually run by a club coach.
