Membership benefits

  • Members' rate to all events (typically <50% of non-member rates
  • Access to NOC coaching and skills development sessions
  • Affiliation to the NZ Orienteering Federation (NZOF), qualifying you to participate in regional, national and international events
  • Access to club scholarship


The club has no employees to run our events for us, we rely on members volunteering.

As a club member, you are expected to help at one event at least throughout the year.  It's normally only a couple of hours, you won't have to pay for that event and you'll still have a chance to go out orienteering at some stage of the day.
