Scottish Junior Cup 2021
***** UPDATE Amended date for round 2 at Tentsmuir *****
Plans are now in place to host a Scottish Junior Cup league over three different races during the spring and summer of 2021. The league will offer a set of high quality, fun, and competitive races which will be open to all junior orienteers in Scotland with age classes from M/W12 to M/W18. The draft plan is as follows:
- Sun May 30th, Auchingarrich, Perthsire
- Sun Aug 29th, Tentsmuir North, Fife (changed from 22nd due to clash with British Sprint Championships)
- Sun Sep 19th, Anagach, Grantown on Spey
The series will be planned and organised by parents of juniors in the area squads and ScotJOS. The focus of each event will be on the junior races, but where possible there will be accompanying opportunities for adult participation, subject to Covid restrictions on the number of competitors and travel.
Results from each race will count towards an overall league for each age class, with all 3 races to count for final positions. Juniors will compete on their usual “Scottish O League” course with “B/S” class options also available for M/W14, 16 and 18.
We hope this series will provide motivation for our juniors to stick with orienteering, giving them a realistic target which we believe there is a very good likelihood of being able to deliver.
It is likely that results from the 3 races will be used as part of the selection policy for Scottish junior teams and the ScotJOS squad for 2022.
