Young people - our futureHow do we keep young people engaged in our fabulous sport?

You may be aware from various posts and discussions that the Scottish Orienteering Equality group is keen to build up a picture of how we keep young people engaged in our fabulous sport. In addition to the recent 'community conversation' on this topic, SOA are running a survey which is anonymous.

SOA are keen to find out more views on what encourages and what puts young people off orienteering and to gather thoughts and ideas about what may need to change. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey.
