Southern Darts

SA Southern Darts Orienteering Squad


The SA Southern Darts caters for young orienteers just entering orienteering (novices)  until they move to high school or the year they turn 12.

Sometimes we train in two groups to allow for experience. 

We hope that members will enjoy orienteering while learning the basics of the sport. 

Gradually you will progress to more difficult courses as  you become more experienced and confident

You will progress to the Junior Arrows when you are old enough. 

The Southern Darts train about once a month during the months of February to October and usually at Noon on a Sunday Bush event.

In addition the Squad conducts Introduction to Orienteering days and camps at Very Easy, Easy and Moderate orienteering skill levels.

The events at which training will be conducted in the near future are detailed below and at others there may be a duty coach to assist Squad members.

Upcoming events:
We have no more planned events for this season.

We had fun going out on a night event together on August 18th  on the easy course and finding the controls as a group.  It was a tricky course with  some cross country work involved. Great work Marcus, Annabel, Zoe and Jessica. 

Zoe made a fast break at the end and beat the rest of us to the finish. 

Good on Ben, Emily and Eliza (and Ian)  on tackling a moderate course and doing well too. 

Congratulations to Marcus, Annabel and Jessica on doing well at the Mulga Valley event the next day. 

The late night around the campfire and practice the night before must have suited you. 

Join the Squad

We love to have new members in our Darts - You don't have to be good at it, you just have to enjoy it and want to get better.  If you've tried orienteering at school or with a friend or your family and you would like to join that is great.  Send us an email and we will link you in to our newsletters so you know when we have events happening.  

When you become a regular member of our squad you receive a top to show that you are part of the group.

Here are Ben, Emily and Eliza wearing theirs at the national Championships near Ballarat .
