Coming Events

Welcome to Orienteering NSW

Orienteering is a sport that challenges both the body and the mind. It's also loads of fun!

The aim is to use a special orienteering map to navigate your way around a course and visit marked check points along the way. You choose a course that suits your age and experience and proceed at your own pace: walk, jog or run. It is a race but you decide if you want to just race yourself or be the next world champion! The course may take you through urban areas, parks, schools, farmland or forests.

Events are conducted weekly across NSW and beginners are welcome at all events.

Want to enter an event? You can see what's on by looking at the Coming Events at left or by going to the Event Calendar. Some events are enter on the day - you just turn up and register at the start. Other events require pre-entry and for that you need to know about (and register with) Eventor - read the Eventor FAQ.


West SSS kicks off on Monday

Our Hills district expansion program - the Western Sydney Summer Series - swings into action on Monday at Baulkham Hills.

WHO are our hosts for the afternoon, at Col Sutton Park, Baulkham Hills Road. Starts are any time from 4.30-6.30pm. The format is the same as for the SSS - you have 45 minutes to get to as many of the 30 controls as you can.

We have already generated some hits in the local papers. Newcomers to orienteering get free entry to a subsequent event in the series.

And a reminder that our Southern SSS resumes on Sunday week at Sandringham, with starts from 4-6pm.

 

SOS ready to go for season 2

Our prioneering Saturday morning series for school students begins its second season this weekend (October 18).

Cherrybrook Technology High School is the venue. Pre-entry is open for weeks 1-3 at the moment and offers discounted rates.

While some schools include the series as part of their Saturday morning sport offering, students are also welcome to attend independently of their school.

Newcomers are encouraged to come along and try out the sport by attending any of the events. You may attend casually and only enter the events that fit in with the family schedule.

Years 5-6 have a mass start at 9am and 45 minutes in which to get to as many of the 20 checkpoints as they can in any order they like. Younger students are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Years 7-12 do a 'line' course, setting off at 1-minute intervals from 9.30am and visiting the controls in a set order.

In week 3 we have something special planned at Callan Park, Rozelle.

 

Bookings open for presentation night

Bookings are now open for our annual presentation night which will be held on Saturday November 8 at the Lane Cove Club.

Who will take out the major awards in 2014?

Who will win a wombie (for an embarrassing orienteering moment)?

The evening will run from 6.30-9.30pm, allowing attendees from the closer regional clubs enough time to get home.

See the invitation for more details and how to book.
