When?


East Midlands Junior Squad

Are you successfully completing the light green course?
The next step is the Regional Squad. This is open to the whole of the East Midlands. Membership is by invitation. You’ll need to be doing a light green or equivalent course regularly to join. The EMJS organise training sessions, including weekends away all over the country so you can practice orienteering in different exciting types of terrain, giving you the chance to develop more advanced technique skills. The general atmosphere is very friendly and you meet lots of new people who you get on with remarkably well.
The highlight of the year for the squad is the annual Inter-regional competition for which a team is chosen (and you get to wear the EMJS O top!).


Club Coaching Activities

These are aimed at adults and juniors who regularly run light green or green courses. Often they take place at British Orienteering Club Coaching days. If you are under 14 a parent or guardian will have to stay with you.
