SSO Program (13+)

Are you an orienteer who enjoys a challenge and wants to improve your skills and stamina? If so, you should join our SSO program. This program is for anyone who already has a basic understanding of orienteering and wants to take their training to the next level. You will participate in different orienteering training activities in various park spaces throughout the year. These brain games will challenge your navigation skills and stamina at your own pace.

The SSO program has four series of sessions throughout the year, with two series lasting for 10 weeks and two series lasting for 5 weeks. The sessions are on Tuesdays and Thursdays, at different times depending on the series. The start dates of each series are:

  • First series starts January 23 (5 weeks)

  • Third series starts July 16 (5 weeks)
  • Fourth series starts September 24 (10 weeks)
