Schools and Orienteering

Orienteering is a perfect outdoor activity for schools. It has challenging courses for all ages and abilities, and can be used as an element in the National Curriculum for PE, Geography and Mathematics. It is an activity that can be done in the school playground as well as in the countryside.

The Harrogate Schools Sports Partnership organise some beginners and inter-schools orienteering events locally. They also have orienteering equipment available for schools to loan. More here.

Claro club coaches may also be able to offer some support to teachers wishing to develop the sport in their school. If you would like further information on Claro’s activities with local schools, please contact Richard Kirk
