Welcome to the Junior section of the SN web pages, many of SN junior members have progressed through the club, joining regional squads for SCOA and SEOA and inturn going on to be members of the Great Britian International squads. Becoming a memeber of SCOA or SEOA squads allows members to be selected to participate in British Orienteering Federation training tours and compete in organised competitions. Squad information can be found at the web site.
The club has a number of Junior awards presented at the end of the year, see the club awards page for the latest holders
No matter what level you are starting Orienteering, SN has something for all, but sometimes it can be useful to practice online your O-skills, so below are a couple of links that might be cool.
Catching Features is an orienteering game you can play at home. Use it for rainy-day training or rest-day enjoyment. Several different modes of play are available. Individual courses are run with interval starts against computer opponents, or with a mass start against lots of them. Relay events allow you to run one leg of a forked relay course.
VO2max features brilliant graphics, challenging courses and amazing variety. Choose from cross-country, score and other race formats against the clock or against OTHER RACERS - live on the internet! Choose terrain and weather from around the globe.
