SN Juniors

Last edited: Tue 4 Oct 2016

Many of SN junior members have progressed through the club, joining regional squads for SCOA and SEOA and in turn going on to be members of the Great Britain International squads. Becoming a member of SCOA or SEOA squads allows members to be selected to participate in British Orienteering Federation training tours and compete in organised competitions.

The club has a number of Junior awards presented at the end of the year, see the club awards page for the latest holders

SN Junior Squad (SNJS)

The SN Junior Squad trains regularly throughout the season, training is targeted at all juniors aged 8 to 18. Sessions are led by our very experienced coaches and orienteers: Jeremy Edwards, Sarah Rollins, Sue Bett and Laurence Townley.

The aims of the squad are to:

  • Provide coaching in the core skills to those juniors keen to develop
  • Bridge the gap between the SN Junior League and other district, regional and national competitions
  • Encourage longer-term participation in our sport
  • Strengthen the club
  • Promote the regional junior orienteering squads
  • And last but not least to have fun

The SNJS has its own squad t-shirt, these are available at training sessions for a small charge.

Contact Laurence Townley for more information.
