Ask not what your sport can do for you but what you can do for your sport?

A New Year has dawned, a new decade is afoot so why not give the gift of volunteering as one of your resolutions in 2020? We recognise the considerable time and energies that many of you give to your clubs and at events throughout the year – we are truly grateful to all those who make our sport happen on a weekly basis. However we at Scottish Orienteering NEED your input too.

Learn how to use MapRun – further workshops

Following the success of the workshop in September, Scottish Orienteering is planning to run a further two workshops on MapRun – the smartphone app which allows you to create and take part in orienteering “events” using GPS signals to identify control sites. Next up will be a session in Nairn on Wed Feb 5th from 7:30-9:30pm at Nairn Community Centre. The date and venue for a session in Edinburgh will be confirmed shortly.

Committed to Equality

Some of the work the SOA staff have been working on ‘behind the scenes’ is our compliance as a Governing Body with the Equality Standard. This sits firmly with our commitment to ensuring our sport is welcoming and inclusive to all who wish to participate.
