Our club's junior section has become a bigger and ever more important part of the club over the years. This section summarises what schemes and resources are available to juniors.
National junior competition
If our juniors can emulate their 2019 feat of qualifying for the final, we should have much less trouble getting there this time- it's 90 minutes away for most, at Westonbirt Arboretum. And the qualifier is on QO turf!
To get an idea of what the Trophy is about, read on....
Junior Orienteering Group
Our Junior Orienteering Group (JOG) runs during term-times holding low-key weekly events aimed at juniors, families and all those looking to improve or to train.
Within the club's area
If you're a newcomer keen to improve, you’d like to keep your orienteering skills up to scratch or you're after a form of exercise that's both affordable and can be done at your own pace, why not head out to one of the Permanent Orienteering Courses available in the vicinity?
at JOG (Fox course)
The Fox course is a training exercise for seniors and juniors from those who are on the verge of trying Light Green at senior events and upwards. Depending on how much of a challenge you want to give your runners, there are all sorts of imaginative possibilities.
Karen Lewis took Oliver and Annabelle to Bristol OK's coaching session at Ashton Court on Saturday (4 January) and it sounds like they all got a lot out of the morning.
