Attention Teachers and Youth Group Leaders 

The Victoria Orienteering Club (VICO) has created a program with the goal of introducing more young people to the sport of orienteering to help them develop physical fitness and confidence in their navigation skills. We also hope to have more youth attend our orienteering club events.

Based on demand, the VICO club will run a number training clinics to introduce youth (scouts, guides, school groups, cadets etc) to the sport of orienteering. The cost of the clinic is $2 per youth and will be made available at times that are most suitable for the youth groups. Clincs will be approximately 2-3 hrs and include:

  • an introduction to what orienteering is
  • orienteering equipment
  • how to read orienteering maps / symbols
  • how to orient the map with a compass
  • how to follow a route and keep track of location; and
  • an opportunity to participate in a beginner orienteering course

Update for 2015
