About the Region

The main purposes of the Association are to provide facilities for and to promote participation in the amateur sport of Orienteering in the South East area of England.

The main activities undertaken by the region include:-

  • Coordination of the annual event programme to ensure that there is no clash of event dates within the region and with other events, either nationally or in regions close by.
  • Organise and pay for a Junior Squad. This selects good and promising orienteers from the clubs and gives them additional training.
  • To coordinate and promote the South East League of competitions for Clubs and Individuals as well as other South East competitions such as the South East Sprints, the South East Relays and more
  • Stage major events such as the JK and the British Orienteering Championships which are too large for any one club to take on its own. These are staged, in general about once every 10 years in the South East.

South East Junior Squad

The South East Junior Squad is aimed at juniors in the 14-18 age groups who want to improve their orienteering, train regularly with other juniors, have fun and make new orienteering friends. We meet once a month and sometimes have weekends away for training or competitions, such as the annual Junior Inter-Regional Championships.

South East League
for Clubs and Individuals

The South East League is an annual competition between its member clubs, which runs over each autumn/winter/spring season. The league is based on events approved by SEOA.
The Individual League is a competition between individual members, using the same events, but on a calendar year basis.

What is Orienteering

Orienteering is an exciting and challenging outdoor sport that exercises mind and body.

The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map.

In competitive orienteering the challenge is to complete the course in the quickest time choosing your own best route.
