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.
There are four courses offered at JOG, called Hare, Squirrel, Badger, and Fox. You can find out what they all mean here.
There is also a handy guide to what to expect at JOG.
Fixtures are shown on our Events page.
We are now offering skill badges again. Ask someone in hi-vis at a JOG...
Club codes of conduct
Please make sure you read and abide by these codes of conduct. They are there for everyone's safety and enjoyment.
The courses for younger JOGgers are always away from roads and other hazards and tend to follow a traditional style of orienteering.
However, the Fox course is aimed at more experienced orienteers. It often incorporates training elements, such as map memory (by not letting you carry the map), regaining map contact (by blanking out areas of the map), compass and pacing (by giving distances and directions rather than a map) and so on.
We've even have a bit of urban training...
