The 2022 ACT Primary Schools Championships will be held at The Pinnacle on Wednesday 23 November.
Entries are open to all ACT Primary School students in years 3 – 6. For children in Years 2 and below, if you have orienteered before and can complete a very easy course unassisted, please contact the organisers to discuss possible entry.
Students can elect to compete either individually or in pairs. Pairs consist of a team of 2 students of any gender, but must be representing the same school and fall within the same age category (either 10 and under, or 11 and over). Individual competitors will compete in either the boys or girls category.
Course lengths range from 1.5km to 3.0km depending on the age group. Courses for the 9 and 10 years age-groups, as well as pairs-10-and-under are very easy standard. Courses for the 11 and 12 years age groups as well as pairs-11-and-over are easy standard. All courses will have the option of following linear features (e.g. tracks, fences, power lines) on all legs.
There are four age categories for individual competitors:
- 9 years and under (born in 2013 or later)
- 10 years (born in 2012)
- 11 years (born in 2011)
- 12 years and over (born 2010 or earlier)

- 10 years and under pairs (born in 2012 or later)
- 11 years and over pairs (born in 2011 or earlier)
