BOK Junior League
The BOK Junior League provides an exciting and sociable opportunity for younger members to experience competitive orienteering in and around Bristol. League scores are based on results from a series of BOK Local events, held between September and May each year.
Prizes for each junior course will be presented at the BOK Club Dinner alongside the other annual awards.
Schools' prizes also available for the top scoring primary and secondary schools.
Due to Covid-19, fixtures for the 2020/2021 season are still in discussion. Whilst you wait, why not try the BOK Junior Virtual Summer Series, using the UsynligO app?
The scoring events for the 2019/2020 season were:
A range of courses will be available at each event; these are our recommendations. *
|Course||Suggested Age Group|
|White||Under 11 & newcomers|
|Green||16 and over|
Points are awarded based on each competitor's position within their course; 100 for first, 99 for second etc. A runner's overall position within the League is based on their 4 best scores on the same course. Runners will need to be members of BOK** to score in the Junior League. Results and League scores will be published on the BOK website after each event.

* Fair Play Rule:- The league is designed to inspire junior members to take part in competitive orienteering. It is not just a chance to collect silverware! It is important that, regardless of age, juniors run a course that challenges them, without being put off. If the league organisers feel a junior is competing on courses that are far too easy for them, we may, in the spirit of the competition, get in touch to suggest they move onto a harder course.
**Membership of BOK is triggered by joining British Orienteering. Membership is annual, aligned with the calendar year. Newcomers can join in November or December for the forthcoming year. Members of other British Orienteering clubs are also eligible to take part in the League, but must provide their BO number when registering.
