Awesome day on the map at Connop Creek checking control sites for the Forest Beginner. Great runnable terrain in places, some subtle features to challenge you, a lovely pond catching feature! Sulphur Springs was also fun but a wee bit more challenging what with the climb that is involved. Nice collections of bones to be found on the Sulphur Springs map:) There is still time to register for the 2018 Alberta Orienteering Skills Camp. #getoutside Sign up today! https://albertaorienteeringskillscamp2018.weebly.com/

Welcome

Foothills Orienteering (FWOC) has a strong history of orienteering in the Calgary area for over 30 years. Our club organizes orienteering races and training throughout the year, and we have programs for 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.
