South Yorkshire Orienteers organises a range of orienteering events throughout the year. The table below lists all of the confirmed upcoming events.
We also have a calendar of events for the next six months that can be downloaded here or picked up at an event.
Some of the events SYO organises are part of an orienteering league. Each event will have details of any league it is in, but the most common leagues are the Yorkshire Urban League, the Yorkshire Night League and the Yorkshire Orienteering Superleague. Flyers for some of these leagues can be found in the League Flyers section of this page.

SYO's club night takes place on Wednesday evenings during term time. During the summer club night takes place from 19:00 to 20.30 at roving locations outside. Each session will contain a mix of physical and technical training. Once per month club night takes place at the SYO local evening event.
The South Yorkshire Schools Orienteering League aims to provide school pupils with the opportunity to learn and develop map-reading skills while improving their fitness in a fun, competitive and challenging sport. The league runs from September to June.
Coaching & Development
SYO has an active coaching and development programme with sessions that combine technique and physical training and are suitable for people of all ages, experience and ability. We are also looking to train members to become event volunteers.
