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.

Controller Accreditation and Training Review

Controller Accreditation and Training Review Completed 


Orienteering Australia has recently completed a review of the process for training and accreditation of Controllers. 

The project team has reviewed and refreshed the documentation, to deliver a framework guide that covers the common aspects of the system, as well as individual curricula for delivery of 3 FootO levels and 2 new MTBO levels.

The documents and accompanying application forms have now been published on the OA website in Section 4 of the Operation Manual webpage (ADMIN > OPERATION MANUAL) for trainers use.

Any FootO controllers who have an interest in MTBO accreditation, can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

The MTBO Application form gives a summary of the competencies required.

A guidance session for the use of the 2 new digital application forms is planned for Sunday 26th Feb and will appear in Eventor shortly.
