Welcome to Sporteering™

The Sporteering™ APP has been developed following 25 years of experience organising navigation competitions and having fun, walking, running and cycling in the outdoors.

The aim of a Sporteering event is to navigate around a series of controls and collect points as you reach each one. This app will allow you to find and take part in Sporteering courses and events near you to challenge yourself, friends and family and is suitable for all ages and abilities.  Loosely based on orienteering this phone APP provides everything you need to navigate an course or event.

No gym membership, no lycra (well that’s up to you) but an easy way to improve your health, well being and competitive instinct – so find your chance to exercise, play and explore with a Sporteering event near you.

  • Finding an event in EVENT LIST
  • Look at your event map and controls
  • Scan the start point to start the clock
  • Scan the controls to collect points as you find them and pass them (in any order)
  • Scan the finish code at the end to stop the clock (or end early if you like)

See yourself collect points, move up the leaderboard and improve your problem solving and fitness – so why not give it a go!

Sporteering

The Sporteering app has been developed following 25 years of experience organising orienteering and self-supported navigation competitions and is based around the original Polaris Challenge Event format. The core objective of any event is to allow a competitor a set period of time to navigate their way around a series of controls and collect points as they reach each one. They need to finish within the prescribed time for the course and failure to do so means they lose points for every minute they are late, over 1 hour late and you lose all the days scores so planning your route is essential. To ensure all competitors have an equal amount of time to plan and compete the scores for each of the controls are not revealed until they scan the Start Control. The aim of the event is to score as many points as possible. Although fitness and speed will play a part, this can be over ruled by good planning. The event is not a test of speed but a test of skill to combine navigation, planning and timing. The APP is used by competitors and a web based portal is used by course organisers. The Organisers are able set their own courses anywhere in the world and set the time number of days. The APP is free to all, as is the planning portal to organisers

Have you got a passion for orienteering or the outdoors and skills in App Development/Xamarin?

We have quickly realised that we need more help from another Orienteering and outdoor enthusiast who might be interested in supporting the development of the project from an APP development perspective who shares our passion for the sport and an understanding of what we are trying to achieve to take things forward.

If you are interested read the blog and get in touch!
