The Washington Interscholastic Orienteering League (WIOL) offers students from elementary to high school age a chance to enjoy orienteering as a competitive sport, empowering them to make sense of new surroundings and get outdoors in an immersive way.
While learning to orienteer, students learn to read topographic maps, use a compass, make route choices, and problem solve when things don’t go as expected. As students improve, these skills are used while running, providing a challenge for both mind and body.
WIOL is open to all students; previous experience or belonging to a team is not required. Students complete courses individually for points, while adding to their team score if they have one.
WIOL is open to any student in Washington State, from K through high school. Registering and paying online is the easiest way to participate in WIOL.
Coaches can manage their team(s) online and (if needed) pay for their registration on-line. Register here to start the process of becoming a WIOL coach.
