Volunteers Needed For The 2019 Season!

The YOA is a volunteer run organization. We depend on individuals like you to run our meets, and any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Many of the tasks do not need any technical knowledge, and if you volunteer you can still go out on a course at the meet.

New for 2019, you can sign up to volunteer at specific meets by going to the Calendar Of Events and clicking on "Volunteer For This Event" beside the event you are interested in.

Bears And YOA Meets

NOTE: There may be bears in any of the map areas where YOA meets are held. YOU must be “bear aware”. To reduce risk, use precautions set out in the booklet How you can STAY SAFE in bear country.

Dogs At YOA Meets

A dog biting incident has prompted the executive to advise orienteers bringing dogs to events to:

  • Leash your dog while in the parking/assembly/start areas;
  • If dogs accompany you on your course, they must be under your immediate control at all times;
  • If there are more incidents or complaints, we may need to take a more stringent approach.
Thank you
