Welcome

Foothills Orienteering (Foothills Wanderers Orienteering Club or FWOC) has been providing orienteering opportunities in the Calgary area for over 30 years. Our club organizes orienteering races and training throughout the year, and we have programs for children, youth and adults. Stay informed of all our events by signing up for FWOC news email.

Newcomers

Heard about orienteering but not really sure what it involves? We are happy to introduce our sport to Calgarians who would like to try orienteering. There are a few options: check out our 90 minute Intro to Orienteering clinics, register for the 5-week Navigation 101 program or just come to a Wednesday evening event. Our regular Wednesday events run April to September. We usually have a veteran on hand to explain the sport at each event. Let registration know and they will point you to the right person. Check out the resources tab for more information.
