Volunteers’ Day

Saturday 22 September

We all know that orienteering relies hugely on members as volunteers for so many aspects of the sport, so it’s only right that we should acknowledge your dedication and commitment, and help you gain and develop the skills that particularly interest you. Since 2013 we’ve been running Volunteers’ Weekends roughly every couple of years, and feedback from each has helped us refine subsequent offerings.

Roger Scrutton with Distinguished Service Award, Credit:Fiona Keir

Last Saturday not only marked our AGM but was also our President Roger Scrutton’s last day ‘in office’. With the launch of Volunteers' Week from 1st to 7th June, we thought it was a fitting time to recognise Roger’s contribution to orienteering having served his maximum 9-year tenure on the SOA Board of Directors as a volunteer.

Scottish Schools Orienteering Festival

SSOA

1st June - Pollok Country Park

The annual Scottish Schools Orienteering Festival (SSOF) returns in 2018 on Friday 1st June, and will take place in Pollok Country Park in Glasgow.

Results

The Festival is open to pupils who have already been introduced to orienteering through their school, from Primary 5 upwards. The focus of the Festival is very much about participating and skills improvement rather than competing. 

Final details of the 2018 SSOF are now on the SSOA website. Closing date for entries is 24th May.

Last year there were over 400 pupils from 65 schools. Will there be more this year?
