Orienteering Victoria and Affiliated Clubs
Orienteering Victoria (or "OV") is the State Association for all Victorian orienteering activities. Local clubs are affiliated to OV. You may, at your option, become a full financial member of OV, or a local club, or both. Details of Victorian clubs can be found here.
All participants in OV events are required to register as CASUAL MEMBERS if they are not full financial members, associate members, registered officials or life members. You will need to register as a casual member at your first OV event each year (including Park and Street events). There is no fee, and you simply provide your name, age and gender, and an email address if you would like to receive the weekly Weekly Bulletin. Note that the membership benefits listed below do not apply to casual members, but you are covered by Orienteering Australia's public liability insurance. You may convert your casual membership to full membership at any time by completing the membership form below.
