Education Resources

Orienteering teaches independence through adventure.

We aim to provide educators with a range of curriculum and lesson planning resources that directly address the current Victorian Curriculum standards.

By making it easier for you to teach orienteering, we are increasing our sport’s accessibility and engagement levels.

Below you will find lesson plans, complete units as well as reporting and assessment programs that are in line with the Victorian Curriculum across all year levels.
