Learn to orientate - course starts 25 April

The course focuses on young people who want to learn more about orienteering and who think that orienteering can be a sport that they want to pursue.

We encourage parents to attend the course themselves.

For young people who sign up, it is important to try to participate from the very first moment - so that the others in the group(s) are not slowed down.

For adults, an intensive course is planned with a provisional date of 22-23 April. More information soon on hellasorientation.se

Location: Hellasgården. Minimum age is 8 years.

Price 450 SEK for young people up to and including 20 years old. The same price applies to accompanying parents.

The courses are 25/4, 2/5, 9/5, 23/5 and 30/5. Always at 18 at Hellasgården. Also a course session 16/5
at another location. You will receive more information about this event during the course.

The course fee includes maps, explanation of map signs, the opportunity to borrow a compass and membership in Hellas Orienteering, which gives you free participation in all the organisation's activities during the rest of the year.

Trainings at Hellasgården on Tuesdays and open trainings at the club house in Lissma on Saturdays

Hellas Orienteering has training sessions every Tuesday, usually at Hellasgården's sauna and gym at 6 pm. For more information, email info@hellasorientering.se.

We also have activities at our nice club house in Lissma. If possible an even better starting point for orienteering.
During winter and pre-season we meet there every Saturday at 10 am. Good opportunities to try orienteering. Maybe you are a multisport or fitness athlete who wants to try orienteering. Here you can take the chance to hang out with talented orienteers and see and learn "out there"!

We currently have a lovely group of interested young people and parents as well as other adults!

Hellas Trail

The Hellas Trail in Paradiset near the Hellas Orienteers' club house in Lissma will be a challenge for all types of runners. The race will be held for the first time on 21 March 2020, the first time the terrain has been used for a trail race.
