Orienteering in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona

The Tucson Orienteering Club and the Greater Phoenix Orienteering Clubs invite you to join us for a week of map and compass in the sunny desert at the end of February. We call it SWSW: the Southwest Spring Week.
The week's event schedule begins in the Tucson area with:

  • Saturday, February 20: morning long courses and a Night-O training course at Catalina State Park
  • Sunday, February 21: morning classic courses at Catalina State Park
  • Monday, February 22: courses using “virtual” controls on the University of Arizona campus
  • Tuesday, February 23: long and short Goat in the rolling grasslands south of Tucson
  • Wednesday, February 24: classic courses on the desert at Ironwood Picnic Ground
  • Thursday and Friday: rest and tourism in beautiful Southern Arizona

SWSW then moves to the Phoenix area for:

  • Saturday, February 27: 3 hour score at challenging flats of Robbins Butte, southwest of Phoenix
  • Sunday, February 28: sprints at desert Papago Park in the heart of Phoenix

Training camp: Saturday, Sunday and Monday can also include an orienteering training camp with U.S. Junior Team coach Erin Schirm. There is an additional charge to join the camp. Juniors (20 and under) and adults (over 20) are both welcome. Learn along with the young stars of American orienteering!
