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 a beginner friendly course that is offered at all our events.
All you need is some clothing you don't mind getting dirty and good footwear, in case the trails are a bit muddy. For insurance reasons, you must become a member of the Sage Orienteering Club in order to participate in local orienteering events. Membership is super cheap, so go sign up today for your 2021 membership on Zone4. Membership is valid for the entire calendar year and is payable online by Credit Card.
