INTRODUCTION TO SCHOOLS ORIENTEERING IN THE TEES VALLEY
CLOK is big on schools orienteering and forming links between our
orienteering club and local schools. You are welcome to join
So far, we created orienteering maps of a total of 149 schools in the Tees Valley area. We also run a schools orienteering league, which comprises seven events on Wednesday afternoons throughout the school year. These events include courses suitable for years 5 to 11.
There are opportunities to compete in National Schools Events run by the British Schools Orienteering Association, and we can help schools to arrange trips to take part in the regular schedule of local, regional and national orienteering events. Talented orienteers have a chance to join the North-East Junior Squad and take part in its programme of training events and trips to interesting orienteering events throughout the country and beyond. (This year's NEJS programme includes a trip to the O-Ringen 5-day orienteering festival in Sweden.)
We have organised a total of 31 Teacher/Leader courses for those wishing to introduce orienteering to school pupils, and we offer orienteering coaching on school sites.
A schools orienteering newsletter -- the Tchimes Education Supplement -- is published at the start of each term. This covers current developments in schools orienteering and the forthcoming schedule of schools orienteering events. You can get a copy from the Local Authority Sports Development Teams or download a copy from the main schools orienteering page.
