How can South Yorkshire Orienteers help set up orienteering in your school?


Many schools in Sheffield already have an orienteering map of their school grounds. SYO will track down any existing map. 

We can also update an existing map for £50, or create a brand new map for £150.

Permanent Course and Scheme of Work

We can set up a permanent course in your school grounds.


  • Install 26 Permanent Markers
  • Scheme of work (emailed zip file) containing 16 session plans and all related resources, maps and courses.
  • Providing instructions on using the course.

This package costs £200.


We can provide coaching in school time or after school. A 2hr session, using the latest electronic timing equipment, is £50. We would expect the school to have a teacher present so that the same lesson could be replicated by the school itself on future occasions.

Staff Training

We can provide training for staff. A two hour twilight session for up to 20 staff would cost £125. A full day Teaching Orienteering course for up to 14 staff is £200 plus £25 per person for a certificate of attendance and resource CD.
