Scoring and Qualification

  • The top 5 finishers in each age category will qualify for the state final (Victorian Secondary Schools Orienteering Championships).
  • “Champion School” points will be earned by the top 10 finishers in each age category: 1st place = 10pt, 2nd = 9pt, etc.
  • A maximum of 3 finishers from a school may score points in each age category (only the top 3 finishers from each school are counted).
  • “Champion School” will be awarded at each regional qualifier as well as at the state final.

Age Categories

Age categories have been altered this year to bring our championships in line with the national competition:

Junior Girls 3.5km Junior Boys 3.5km (15 years or younger at 31 Dec 2020)
Senior Girls 4.5km Senior Boys 4.5km (16 or older at 31 Dec 2020)

All courses are of ‘moderate navigation’ difficulty: Courses are set along handrails such as tracks and fences but include the option to navigate “across country”. Route Choice will be a feature, with participants choosing from a range of possible routes between controls. Controls are located either on or adjacent to handrail features.

The expected winning time for each course is 20min

Entry forms are available at the bottom of the page. Once your entry has been received you will be sent an entry invoice. The entry fee is $10 per student. For more information please contact Rob 0428 358 588
