Welcome!

February 20, 2015: Welcome. Sorry for the delay in updating this site. The schedule should be finalized soon. At the moment, we are hosting two bigger events this year: Sage Stomp in May and the BC Champs in October. We will also be hosting local events on Sundays throughout the spring, summer and fall. Sage Stomp will potentially contain a middle event and Rogaine (day event). BC Champs will consist of a sprint, middle and long.

How to get started

The best way to get started is to just come out to any of the events. If you arrive a few minutes before the starting time, we will give you a brief introduction and then you can go around all or part of a course, on your own or with someone else. It's easy to learn and a lot of fun.

All you need is some older clothing and footwear, in case the trails are a bit muddy (we mostly stick to open parks and roads but sometimes there are bits of forest trails included) Membership is payable at the first event you attend each year and is good for the entire calendar year. You must be a member in order to participate in a Sage "C" event. Fees are: $10 for rec member to try out orienteering; $20 for Individuals; $40 for family. Membership includes liability insurance through the Canadian Orienteering Federation insurance policy.

Our events are in the Kamloops area and usually have a couple of different course levels. There is a fee of $5 per adult per event. We also use "electronic timing" so you can see how well you did.

If you do decide to come to an event, please sign up on our website in advance - that way we know to print a map for you.
