This is a description of the standard orienteering course levels and the skills required to do each one — ordered from easiest to hardest. This list is to help you decide which orienteering course and/or which training session to select. Above all, remember that orienteering is intended to be fun. Choose the course which challenges your current skill level but is still easy enough to be fun for you.
Despite iffy and unseasonal weather predictions, we had a very good showing of orienteers at today’s event. The day started off pretty chilly and damp, but gradually warmed, and we never got any real rain until just as the last controls were retrieved.
Lots of people came out to learn about orienteering last week at North Chagrin. Here are some photos from the day. If you have additional, feel free to send them our way for posting.

Well, I promised mud enough for all. In a sense that happened. I did not count on snow, though. That, along with temperatures in the 30’s with a steady wind, made for a memorable day of orienteering at Brecksville for the 47 individuals who participated in this event.
Join the Orienteering for Beginners event to learn about the sport of orienteering, how to work the map and compass, and ultimately, how to be successful on a beginner course.
A bit chilly, with temps in the 40s, didn’t seem to stop any of the participants on Saturday’s event at Manatoc Scout Reservation. At 11:10AM, at least 25 scouts were ready and waiting to go out seeking controls, and had to be diverted for a few minutes while we got all the paperwork in order, and finished setting up the registrar’s table and e-Punch timing system.
