Young People - Our Future
Help us understand better how to keep young people engaged and involved in orienteering.

We'd love to hear especially from young people themselves.

We'd also like to hear from coaches, clubs, parents, volunteers and anyone with an interest in keeping young people engaged in orienteering.

Without young people remaining in our sport, orienteering has a limited future.
We know there is a significant drop-off from age 14 where young people are less likely to travel to competitions and events with family. Outside the performance squads, many young people then tend to disappear off the radar. Many do not re-engage until they have families of their own. Some never return.

Can we change this? Can we find ways to keep more young people engaged in our sport?
