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.

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 now badges available to work on as part of a progression up the ranks.

Compete locally- in our Forest League, After dark events or club champs

Buddy scheme - if you would like help getting start or developing further, or even if you'd like to help another improve, then why not buddy up? Contact Angela Modica (see contacts page) and / or fill in the questionairre to help us identify your needs.

Skilling Up - training tips and videos. See in particular the tips for Beginners

Go to other clubs' events - help and familiar faces will often be there, with a growing body of members & families choosing to orienteer further afield.

Represent the club - at inter-club events (mini bus transport is often arranged) or in summer relay teams.

Challenge yourself- within the regional league or at UK-wide multi day events

Get selected: by the South West Junior Squad or for internationals.

The progression is explained by Berkshire OC

Club nights and Training - occasionally we run series of physical & technical training sessions, typically in summer evenings. We sometimes have presentations at Club Nights at COACH, Taunton.
