AVOC will be hosting a Sprint event on Saturday,July 1, 2023 at Acadia University. Course distances are approximate. The terrain is a university campus,which includes a wooded area.

In an effort to reduce waste, please bring your own water.


Prior to participating in an event, participants must complete the 2023 Orienteering NS membership process, including the Orienteering Canada waiver. There is no cost, and this is completed once per year.

We are now using a new membership registration system. The first thing it asks for is to create a login to the software. This is necessary so that the system will recognize you when you register for events and it will make next year’s registration process quicker as well!

Please complete this before your first event! (If you registered using the google form system for your first event this year, we thank you for completing the new form as well).
