Sheffield Schools Orienteering

Published on: Sep 09, 2021

The South Yorkshire Schools Orienteering League aims to provide school pupils with the opportunity to learn and develop map reading skills while improving their fitness in a fun, competitive and challenging sport.

There will be 9 events spread over the year. All events will be on a Saturday afternoon. The first event is Saturday 11th September at Endcliffe Park Sheffield.

Pupils should enter as an individual. If they are inexperienced then they are welcome to run with a friend. They should register separately and the time for each runner will count, even if they stick together throughout the course.

Y4 and Y5 will compete on the White course, normally between 1 and 1.5 km. Y6 will compete on the Yellow Course normally between 1.5 and 2.5 km. Registration starts at 12:30pm. Pupils then start orienteering at 1 minute intervals with start times from 1pm to 3pm.
