Guidance for clubs wishing to affiliate to SOA
This page summarises the process by which a club can become affiliated to the Scottish Orienteering Association.
The SOA is affiliated to British Orienteering; clubs should affiliate to British Orienteering as well as SOA. SOA does not charge a fee for clubs to affiliate, though British Orienteering does charge a modest fee. Once the club is affiliated, individuals should join as members of the club, SOA and British Orienteering in one step, via the British Orienteering website.
To become affiliated, a club must supply:
- an application letter addressed to the SOA President
- names of club President (or Chair), Secretary and Treasurer
- statement confirming that the club will abide by the Articles and Bye-Laws of the Scottish Orienteering Association, and British Orienteering's Rules of Orienteering.
If you require a sample constitution or other support, please contact the SOA Development Officer, Hilary Quick, via the Contacts page.
