SA Schools Championships Report

SchoolsChampsAssemblyThe championships were held at “The Paddocks” Para Hills on Monday May 21.  Yalanga Orienteering Club with the assistance of other clubs hosted this year’s event.

234 students from 28 primary and secondary schools competed over 12 courses. The map terrain was generally flat and comprised sports grounds, tracks, mounds, parklands, wetlands and suburbs. Only the harder courses extended into the suburbs.

The weather conditions were overcast but mild. A southerly breeze became slightly gusty late morning. There was no rain. There was ample parking space for cars and buses.  The veranda of the Para Hills West Soccer Club provided shelter for Registration and the Finish computers. The event went smoothly apart from a marquee upturned by a wind gust.

Competitors used Pcards. This year teachers on registering were handed a pack containing Pcards for distributing to students. Previously these were handed to students at the start. This seemed to work well saving time and labour at the start.SchoolsChampsStart

 The courses were suitably challenging particularly for students who were not regular orienteers. The seven volunteers (“Pink Hats”) out on the courses assisted dis-orientated competitors. The majority of competitors completed their courses and good times were also achieved.

Congratulations to the following place getters.

Urban to Bush Orienteering Events – Opportunities for bush orienteering in the suburbs

on .

From late April through May, 4 events are being provided to provide orienteers to try out orienteering in the suburban environment but with a flavour of bush orienteering at some events. At each event, several courses are available, shorter easier courses for the less experienced and longer more challenging courses for the physically fitter or more experienced orienteer. You can complete a course as an individual or in a group, and do at a pace which suits you (run or walk). 

WadmorePark ver8The series begins at Wadmore Park, Athelstone (small map snippet at left) – Black Hill in Athelstone (Sunday April 29th). The second event (Sunday May 6th) at Heathfield includes a detailed map around the Heathfield HS (map snippet below) with a larger map extending to Woorabinda Reserve for the longer courses. A more urban style event is to be held Saturday May 12th at Stonyfell,   The fourth event on Sunday May 20th is in Shepherds Hill Recreation Park. In conjunction with the foot orienteering courses will be a Mountain Bike event. 

At all events, more experienced orienteers will be on hand to assist newcomers and those with less orienteering experience.  Participants can enter at each event, arrive between the designated start period in the event details.  Links to event information are in the event list on the right of this page.
