Orienteering is an exciting sport for all ages and fitness levels that involves racing to find checkpoints as quickly as you can, navigating from a detailed map.
Membership is being done on Zone4 this year. Membership costs are as follows:
- Adult (21 and older) - $15

Costs are capped at $30 per family, and new members get 50% off their registration fees.
Orienteering Canada has added a new waiver in June that needs to be signed by all participants prior to participating in this training.
In accordance with ViaSport's guidelines, Sage Orienteering Club's Return to Sport Guidelines are here.
The Sage Orienteering Club produces high quality orienteering and adventure running events throughout the southern interior of BC.
In 2020 we were due to host the Canada and USA Team Trials for Sprint World Orienteering Championships in conjunction with the long-running Sage Stomp. Unfortunately, that has now been cancelled due to the coronavirus.
We are currently planning to have several semi-permanent courses that are setup for a week or two at a time where you print your own map and go on your on time. This is in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the need for people to keep their distance.
We are starting a 8 week navigation series for children ages 6-8 starting Sept 25 3:30-4:30. It will start at Albert McGowan park and visit 2 other Kamloops park. Registration cost: $50 which include club membership and insurance costs. Contact Jackie for details.
The 35th Annual Sage Stomp is also happening on September 19th/20th.
Three virtual trainings are planned this fall.
We are taking a break from hosting events in Reveltoke this year. See you in a (hopefully more normal) 2021!
We have three, more urban, virtual trainings planned for this fall, and are hoping to finish off the season with an in person event at Spion Kop.
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 2020 membership on Zone4. Membership is valid for the entire calendar year and is payable either online by Credit Card (preferred method) or at the first event you attend.
