SCOA Junior Squad

The SCOA Junior Squad (SCJS) is responsible for the training of junior orienteers within the region to achieve a high standard both personally and when running for the region.

The Junior Squad is always on the lookout for new members - perhaps it could be you or your children! You don't have to be that experienced to join the squad and the squad will help you to become a better orienteer.
