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.
