Schools Events

 

The aim is to provide school pupils with the opportunity to learn and develop map-reading skills while improving their fitness in a fun, competitive and challenging sport.

 

 

Cost. Schools are not required to pay any fees to enter the league. Costs will be covered by each individual paying £1.50 on the day. This will include the cost of event levies to the national governing body, trophies, map production, map printing and equipment costs. The map can be taken away afterwards. Anyone who is already a member of Kingdom of Fife Orienteers, or who joins during the year, will get a £1 discount.

Teams. There’s no need to arrange teams beforehand, or for any form of team co-ordination. All pupils can enter independently, but it will be just the fastest 4 from each school whose results counts for the team score from any event. There’s no limit to the number who can enter.

Entries. Pupils should enter as an individual, but they are welcome to run with a friend. However, both must register separately and the time for each runner will count, even if they stick together throughout the course.

Primary Competition. Most primary children will compete on the short course, normally between 1.5 and 2.5 Km with straightforward navigation. Children can expect to take between 15 and 40 minutes to complete the course. The course is designed so that it can be completed without the use of a compass. P7 pupils may continue to run the short course for their old primary school after they have changed schools, or they can choose to run for their new school from August onwards. Primary children are also welcome to attempt the long course, but this is only recommended for anyone who has been to a few events and is finding the short course too easy. Points will be scored as if they were a secondary school runner.

 

Junior Coaching Sessions

The sessions are designed to teach the basics of Orienteering up to Orange Standard.

 

The sessions are open to all juniors (P5 – S1) and the cost will be £2.00 for KFO Club members and £5.00 for non-members per session.

Places must be pre-booked through Duloch Leisure Centre or by contacting ian@kfo.org.uk
