List of Controllers

List of SOA controllers sorted by club, including their home town - updated 10 June 2018.

At the foot of this web page, there are links to download the SOA application forms for appointment to Grade C controller, and to upgrade to Grade B controller.  (Please use the Word doc in preference to the pdf, if you can.)

Grade B controllers who are interested to upgrade to Grade A should contact the SOA Controllers' Co-ordinator, Rob Hickling, who can advise you on the process for applying to British Orienteering.

Event Safety Tutors

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.
