Orienteering Information

Orienteering around Tollymore NOC

Orienteering around Tollymore NOC

Tollymore National Outdoor Centre has worked closely with the Northern Ireland Orienteering Association to develop orienteering as an activity in the centre. We have the most up to date electronic equipment available, enabling us to run a range of tailored courses suitable for all needs. This ‘Sport iDent’ system is the same that is used in all competitive orienteering events – there is no longer a need to carry around a paper sheet, and punch it at each control. All participants can now avail of modern technology and obtain comprehensive feedback and coaching on their progress. The Tollymore area has also recently been remapped, allowing us to deliver tailored courses on current maps.

We provide many schools with Orienteering training as part of the GCSE PE Syllabus and also run an annual competitive orienteering event for schools.

The GCSE syllabus can be provided over a three day non residential programme, or a two day, two night residential.

Current situation

As you are probably aware the current advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI is that we cannot deliver any face to face courses for our customers including use of the Hot Rock Climbing Wall.

We know that you and many others like minded folk are very keen to get back on track with your plans to attend and complete a range of personal skills training and qualifications in a range of disciplines.

Believe us when we say we are equally keen to get outside with you and help you reach your goals and complete that journey.

How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
