British Orienteering has published updated guidance about coronavirus and orienteering, requiring that all orienteering events be cancelled at this time. SYO has therefore followed this advice and cancelled all events within the next few months.


We hope you are well...

...and keeping active over this difficult time! Here's our July's Junior of the Month!

Welcome to the Juniors’ section of the SYO website!

It’s aimed at both newcomers and experienced juniors – you’re all part of the SYO Junior Squad.

Scroll down to discover more about the SYO Junior Squad - and I hope to see you at an event soon!
