SROC Membership

All orienteering membership runs Jan-Dec for one year (if you join from 1st November - 31 December it includes the current year and the next year).

Benefits of becoming a member of SROC:

  • Cheaper entry to some events (which charge an extra £2 to non BOF members)
  • Making friends with other Club members and Club social activities, including the annual club handicap/prizegiving, Summer social, club dinners etc
  • Opportunity to take part in team competitions, like the Yvette Baker Junior competition, Compass Sport Trophy Competition (which SROC won in 2015!)
  • 10% Discount from our local O shop, CompassPoint
  • The Club Newsletter, 6 times per year
  • Red Rose Email Updates
  • Access to a ‘Navigational Challenge’ and ‘Racing Challenge’ Incentive Scheme  - very popular with Juniors
  • The British Orienteering magazine, Focus, which includes the junior magazine Ozone (3 copies per year - one copy per postal address)
  • Discounts from national companies through the member discounts scheme (click BOF website for a full list of discounts available)
  • The option to sign up for a range of e-newsletters
  • Eligibility to compete in the championship classes at the British Championships, the JK and the Area Championships (Northern; Midlands and Southern) *
  • Eligibility to compete in the United Kingdom Orienteering League
  • Eligibility to compete in the Harvester Relays *
  • Opportunity to qualify to represent your country at international competitions
  • The option to compete in a Rankings scheme
  • Eligibility to apply for awards under the British Orienteering Badge Scheme
  • Public Liability Insurance when participating in events and activities registered with British Orienteering
  • Papers and vote at the British Orienteering AGM
  • Access to a members only section of the website
  • There is now just one type of membership and all members belong to a club (eg SROC) and BO (British Orienteering):
    The costs of membership are as follows :

    Each adult £5 BO fee
    Each junior £2 BO fee
    Senior £5 SROC fee
    Family £5 SROC fee
    Junior no SROC fee

    So a family of 4 would pay £5+£5+£2+£2+ £5= £19
    A couple would pay £5+£5+£5 = £15

    For those who are wanting some contact with the club but no longer orienteering we do offer the chance to be a ‘Friend’ of SROC. This category is free and this means you will receive the club newsletter (by email) and be welcome at social events.
