COVID Safe Orienteering

As a sport, we must work together to resume orienteering responsibly and within the relevant Government guidance.

First Aid guidance 

British Orienteering wants to reassure members who may have concerns about licensing, returning to coaching and instructing when the current restrictions are lifted.

Due to the current Covid-19 lock-down in the UK, we have made some temporary changes to what is required to remain a licensed coach or be the recognised First Aider at an event.
