The South Central Orienteering Association represents the orienteering clubs in the south of England - our members run for clubs which mainly cover Hampshire, southern Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, South Buckinghamshire and Berkshire.

There is almost always an event in the region or close by on most weekends of the year. See our fixture list here, or see each club's own fixture list for details.

This web site aims at promoting regular information for members about orienteering in the region and provides information on the regular and occasional regional competitions.

SCOA pools the resources of the region’s clubs in order to provide coaching for juniors, training for officials, co‑ordinate fixtures, organise our largest events, and generally support orienteering within the region. More information about the services that SCOA provides to its members can be found by clicking here.

New for 2017-18, you can now run for your club in the SCOA League (SCOL) events. Every run counts and the more club members that take part, the better your score! Your individual league points are calculated as usual, based on performance, but you then get bonus points – 1 for every 4 club members taking part in that event. Everyone’s scores are then added up and an average score for the club is calculated. There will be a lovely trophy next autumn for the top club in the region.
