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 are hosted by volunteers! Volunteers organize, plan the courses, man the registration table, help with timing / results, and set out and pick up controls. There is a job for every level of orienteering experience! Don't be shy. We NEED your help! Choose the event location that suits you and sign up now: Sunday Fall Sprint Series Volunteer
