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 again this year. Membership costs are as follows:
- Adult (21 and older) - $15
- Junior (20 and under) - $10
Costs are capped at $30 per family, and new members get 50% off their registration fees.
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.
Thanks for a great 2020 everyone! We hope to organize a ski-o or two over the winter (although with the current COVID situation, this is looking unlikely), and will be restarting events in the spring in April or May (whether they be synchronized group trainings/events, or asynchronous trainings). Keep your eye on the website for schedules and updates.
We hold weekend events throughout the spring and fall in Kamloops, once every few months. Additionally, a new junior program was successfully run in 2020, and is under consideration for renewal in 2021.
We hold regular weeknight trainings in Salmon Arm as well as the occasional weekend event.
We are planning on hosting several events in Revelstoke in 2021, including a 4+ hour Score-O!
We hold regular weeknight trainings in the Kelowna area in the spring and fall, as well as the occasional weekend event.
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.
