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.
