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.

Coaches have their hands full at the Sydney South West Regional

With 438 students from 10 schools around the Camden area, the coaches supporting the Sydney West Regional Championships certainly had their hands full. Some of the students were back for their second year and were full of enthusiasm for the races. Coaches walked their allocation of students around a practice course before the individual races started. Some of the children were initially dismayed by the mud but after a while their excitement at being out and orienteering took over, and they developed a healthy disregard for white socks. Warragamba PS took the top three spots in the Under 10 boys event with Thirlmere PS girls doing the same in their class. Mawarra PS had some good results in M10 (1st) and W10 (2nd and 3rd) with Cobbity PS picking up the other placings in those classes. Narellan Vale PS had their success in the M11 with 1st and 3rd places. Camden South PS took 2nd place in M12 to prevent a strong Warragamba PS from collecting another clean sweep. For the secondary schools Chevalier College took 1st and 3rd in both M14/15 and W14/15 with Thomas Hassell in 2nd for those classes. Elizabeth Macarthur shone in the M16+ taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in this senior class.

After the individual races there was time for a quick lunch and then it was onto the relays. A mass start got pulses racing and 2nd and 3rd leg runners waited impatiently for their turn at the tagging area. Relay results:
