  • Orienteering USA: What is Orienteering: Our national website contains many resources for learning about orienteering, including descriptions of map symbols and clue sheet symbols, explanations of types of orienteering, and course lengths. The "What is Orienteering" page also contains a video that shows many of the described terms in action.

  • Orienteering USA: How to Orienteer: This section of the national site describes how an event works and what to expect. It includes introductory information about how to navigate including a video that demonstrates the techniques.   

  • Attackpoint: Good place for discussions of orienteering events, training, and a variety of topics related to orienteering. You can log your workouts and see a list of orienteering and related events across the country and internationally. After attending an event, you'll usually find the results listed on Attackpoint along with a listing of splits. The split listings have more information than shown on our website. For example, it will show you which controls it has calculated that you had errors on and the estimated time lost. It shows you your placement for each leg and highlights those you were fastest on.
