NEOC provides travel grants for youth participating in domestic and international orienteering events. More information will be posted for the 2020 Junior Travel Grant Program once ‘normal’ orienteering resumes.
In light of the current public health crisis surrounding COVID-19, the New England Orienteering Club is canceling its public events as we've known them, for the immediate future. This is to comply with federal, state, and local authorities' public health directives, and to protect both our participants and our volunteers.
But wait. Aren't local trails and public land open? Orienteering is the perfect sport to maintain "social distancing" as you navigate by yourself through unfamiliar terrain. It seems like the perfect way to meet recreational and emotional needs.
We all love orienteering. And our very mission is to promote orienteering and provide individuals, groups, and families with an organized outdoor activity that is mentally and physically challenging on a variety of levels.
Stay tuned to the Schedule and the "NEOC Update" email as we work with land managers and club volunteers to organize Bring-Your-Own-Map (BYOM) events. Participants will be able to navigate around a course on their own time to minimize interactions.
