Orienteering Pathways for Juniors and Adults

on .

The team at Orienteering SA, in particular Bridget Anderson assisted by Leila Henderson, have been working hard making clear and concise pathway promotional posters to use for new and current orienteering members.  We have made two posters focusing on youth members 0-18 and for adults as there are different pathways for each group.

We are hoping everyone can use these posters to help them understand where they can go with their orienteering.

For juniors their orienteering journey may begin with their families who are orienteers or through school and after school orienteering programs.  For activities to improve their orienteering skills and move to more advanced orienteering, they can participate in the Southern Darts (7- 12 years) or Junior Arrows (12-17) training activities. From here the more competitive may become part of the state schools team, or the Southern Arrows team (juniors 17 -20 and seniors) competing in National Orienteering League events.

However many may follow the same pathway as adults, by participating in local urban events, joining a club and depending on their level of activity, attend state bush events or in some cases interstate events. However the more recreational orienteers may participate in orienteering as a social activity, attending events with their friends and families, and other club members.

So both juniors and adults can choose the pathway that suits them, and take a more competitive or more social approach to their orienteering.  Whatever the pathway, orienteering is a “Sport For Life” as all ages can participate at the same time in programmed events.
