Do I need prior experience?

You don't need any prior experience with orienteering to come to an event and go out on a course! At every event, we have a free Beginner's Clinic during which you'll learn the basics of orienteering. It lasts about 15-20 minutes. When you check in at the event, just mention that you'd like a lesson on the basics and we'll be happy to oblige!
