About Orienteering

For many years, the sport of orienteering has been promoted by the Barbados Cadet Corps as a training for their cadets. Barbados Orienteering Federation was formed on February 23rd, 2010. At its meeting in Helsinki, Finland, the IOF Council provisionally approved the application for full membership from Barbados Orienteering Federation.

Orienteering is a family of sports that requires navigational skills using a map and compass to navigate from point to point in diverse and usually unfamiliar terrain, and normally moving at speed. Participants are given a topographical map, usually a specially prepared orienteering map, which they use to find control points. Originally a training exercise in land navigation for military officers, orienteering has developed many variations. Among these, the oldest and the most popular is foot orienteering.
