The ASO League is an annual competition open to any
school or youth group. It is a series of 8 Sunday morning orienteering
races held throughout the year in which competitors score
points for themselves and for their schools.
is an exciting sport which provides a tough mental and physical
challenge to the competitor as they use a map to race around
an unknown area of forest or moorland. The sport is perfect
for people of all fitness levels as you can compete at your
own pace. It is a great way to explore the countryside and
to learn map-reading and decision-making skills.
The ASO Parents League introduced last season continues in 2016-17. Scores are on the Scores page

it might take you!?
Hope you enjoyed the wonderful runnable open forest above the Danby Lodge parking. Scores are now updated. Kingswood have an unprecedented third consecutive perfect score in the Secondary League. Competition is a lot closer in the Primary League ... and in the Parents Light Green League!
It looks like our next race at Beechenhurst on 5th February will reveal our first League winners of 2017. This will be a Middle Distance race, which won't be very noticeable on the short courses, but Light Green upwards will find more controls and a bit less distance than usual.
Don't forget - Year 6 must now run Yellow to score ASO points.
