INVERNESS SCHOOLS ORIENTEERING LEAGUE

 **********************

CONGRATULATIONS to all the runners in the 2022 INVOC Schools League, and special mention for all the teachers and parents who transported and coached the children.  Well done to Avoch on winning the large primary school league after a tight tussle with Cawdor, Tomnacross on the small primary school league, and Fortrose Academy on winning the high school league - their lead was too much for the IRA to catch up after illness and injury decimated their team at Torr Wood.  All three trophies head out of Inverness!

How do schools get involved? 

Please look at the School information Pack for school registration, course information and league scoring system

1. Register your school by emailing your entry form to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (Registration form here). Once registered you will be included in any subsequent mailings regarding the schools programme. The event rules can be viewed here

2. Identify someone to lead your orienteering group (there needs to be someone responsible for each school group at the events). It could be a parent with an interest in orienteering or a teacher. Speak to your Active Schools Coordinator who may be able to help with volunteer recruitment and support. 

3. Start training your group in the playground so they are primed and ready to run in the woods by April. The league events are primarily aimed at P5-S2 pupils but older novices are also welcome to attend. White, Yellow, Orange and Light Green courses will be available (see below) and can be completed individually, in pairs, or for those completely new to the sport, as a group “walk O”. 

4. All schools must pre-enter their teams – there will be no entry on the day for schools. Please help with this by getting entries in in plenty of time - this helps the organisers ensure that there are enough maps and SI equipment for everyone on the day.

5. Sort out transport to the events . All school groups must complete EVOLVE forms for these off-site excursions and submit them for approval to Outdoor Education in addition to their school EVC. Please remember that Orienteering is classified as an adventurous activity for the purposes of EVOLVE and must be risk assessed accordingly. All the events are planned and risk assessed by experienced INVOC members in accordance with British Orienteering Federation guidelines but school leaders will have do their own group risk assessment with any medical and behavioural needs unique to their group.
