Clydeside Orienteers adhere to the SOA child protection policy which is available on the SOA website.
Club members taking part in coaching courses or becoming involved with club training and coaching events for children should be aware that a new scheme was implemented on 28th February 2011, the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme, which replaces the previous enhanced Disclosure scheme. It introduces the concept of ‘regulated’ work. Anyone who works (which includes caring, teaching, instructing, training, supervising, being in sole charge or having unsupervised contact) with children or protected adults will be considered to be carrying out regulated work and will have to be a member of the PVG scheme. Information can be found on the Scottish Orienteering, PVG Scotland or Disclosure Scotland websites.

Orienteering is a challenging outdoor adventure sport that exercises both the mind and the body. The aim is to navigate in sequence between control points marked on a unique orienteering map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run, walk or jog the course and progress at your own pace.
