The new 'Scottish' membership is suited to people who primarily orienteer non-competitively within their local area of Scotland. Members join their local club and the SOA only, and the option is available to new and existing members. There are some limitations on entering larger competitions and taking on coaching and official roles.

This option runs alongside the standard 'British' membership, joining your local club, the SOA and British Orienteering, which is best suited to people who wish to participate competitively in championship races across Scotland or the UK, or hold event official or coaching roles.

For more information and to see the differences between each option, click here. To explain why we introduced the option, read more here.
