The Schools League Co-ordinator is Essex Straggler Julie Laver. Please send any ideas or feedback to Julie at email@example.com or telephone 01206 826152.
The League is run by the Essex Stragglers Orienteering Society in conjunction with our neighbours the Suffolk Orienteering Club (SuffOC). This year two other East Anglian clubs are also hosting events for us - West Anglian Orienteering Club and Havering and District Orienteering Club.
ESSOL events are open to all young people of Junior or Senior School or Sixth Form age. You can compete individually, represent a school, youth group or club or do both.
Trophies are presented at the end of the season to each boy and girl with the best score in each combined year group (5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12/13), and to the best scoring school.
Free membership of SOS is available to all Schools, Youth Groups and Clubs which fall within the SOS catchments area (i.e. mid and North Essex) - details are here. Details of SUFFOC membership are here.

A trophy will be presented to each boy and girl in each school year group (5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12/13) who has the highest cumulative points score from his or her best 5 results.
A certificate will be presented to each boy and girl who wins their year group course at each event and to those who score at least 100 points from their best 5 results.
