Foothills Orienteering (FWOC) is an active club of several hundred members in southern Alberta. We organize races and training throughout the year, and have programs for youth and adults. The club has had a strong history of orienteering in the Calgary area for over 30 years.

Our club is proud of our successful SOGO Adventure Running program that coach kids ages 3 to 18 to become great orienteers. There are two seasons each year in several locations around town. This Spring we have over 400 kids in SOGO - be sure to get your kids into the Fall program.
For more experienced orienteers we offer a ten-week Advanced Orienteering Training program coached by National Team athlete Jeff Teutsch.
