BASOC Schools Orienteering League

2016 series underway with successful event at Abernethy

New for 2016, BASOC is trialling a mini schools league. In future years we aim to put on a competition for schools all over the BASOC area, but we have decided to start small and build slowly. This year there will be four rounds, each one hosted at one of the four primary schools surrounding Grantown Grammar. Pupils from any other secondary or primary school are very welcome to attend.

Results are now online. Just go to the results page after each week for results, photos and post-event reports.

Kingussie High School Sports Open Day

A fun local community project for BASOC

Inverness College, Kingussie High School and the local Community Sports Hub all worked together to put on a fun little taster event round the grounds of Kingussie High School. This was part of a Sports Taster Day where pupils in S1-S4 got to try everything from roller skiing to indoor bowling via shinty, football, mountain biking and of course orienteering.

Well done to the 30 pupils who took part - find your results here.

Run wild in the woods

Tuesday=O, so we go out and do some orienteering. Call it training or just playing, it’s as hard as you want it to be, both physically and technically, and now it's in daylight!
So dig out that compass and give it a go.

Newcomers are welcome and there is always someone to explain things and help you get started.
