Beginners Clinic

Interested in orienteering but don’t know where, or how, to start? Come on out to our next Beginner Clinic.  We’ll show you how to use a compass, how to read an orienteering map, and walk with you through an orienteering course.

 

Cost:

$30.00 person (includes map, instructions) Discount of $10 for TOC Members.

Time:

Wednesday evening clinics run from 6:00 p.m. until dark. We offer clinics at most of our events as well.

Registration:

Note that there are limited spots per session. Pre-registration is required, the day before the intended clinic, to guarantee your spot. Drop-in registration will be accepted if there are spots available, but there is no guarantee.

Location:

Clinics are generally held in conjunction with the Wednesday Night Park Series. The Park Series is held a different GTA park every week. 

What to wear:

Regular running or comfortable walking shoes. Long pants are recommended.

Compass:

Bring your own compass, if you have one, or we’ll loan you one for the session.
