Foothills Orienteering (FWOC) has a strong history of orienteering in the Calgary area for over 30 years. We organize races and training throughout the year, and have programs for youth and adults. Stay informed of all our events by signing up for FWOC news email.
All FWOC events rely heavily on volunteers. So if you want to help out you can sign up to help with our 2017 Wednesday Events. Jobs suitable for all levels of experience and availability: organizing, registration, control-pick up, timing.
Sign up to help with the FWOC casino on August 11 & 12, 2017.
