Event Safety Workshops are delivered locally by tutors approved by British Orienteering and registered with SOA. As with controllers, there is often significant benefit from having input from an experienced person in a different club, and most tutors are happy to travel to where they're wanted.
The SOA has five sets of clocks that can be used at race starts or finish to show race time. These clocks are designed to be a “Turn on and Go” system for an event start. Description updated April 2017.
Information and guidance for clubs, by Regional Development Officer Rona Lindsay

This page is intended to provide coaches with a single point of access to a variety of information, templates and resources for different aspects of their coaching activity. Updated 13 May with link to useful items about nutrition and the Jamaican junior athletics setup, 5 April to provide link to British Orienteering guidance on use by coaches of social media, 6 January 2017 to provide new CPD template to be used from 2017 onwards, and 11 January to add article about psychological characteristics and talent in young orienteers.

For many years, Graham Nilsen’s “Course Planning” document has been considered a prime source of guidance on the practicalities of planning orienteering courses. Although many of the principles remain valid, much of the detail has become obsolete in the 20+ years since it was written. I have therefore re-written it (with Mr Nilsen’s blessing), and the updated document is now available for download.
