Teacher in Charge: Mr Horne
Teams: All Year levels and abilities are able to compete in Orienteering. There are a few sprint and relay events throughout Term 1 that progress into 'proper' Orienteering in the wilderness. The sprint events are perfect for beginners as they are around local schools and the chances of getting 'lost' are very low.
Competition: Sprint Series (5-6 weeks in Term 1), AKSS Relays (near the end of Term 1), NZSS Orienteering (Term 2/3 Holidays).
Training: Students can attend training sessions before the events. A medium/high level of fitness is required to compete.
Equipment: SportIdent Cards are provided with entries.
Parent Help: Transport to and from the venues is appreciated.
Registrations: Meetings are held early in Term 1. Keep an eye on the Sports notices.
Costs: $10-15 per event.
