One of the most important things you can do as an orienteer is join Orienteering USA, our sport's national federation. Not only do you receive exclusive membership benefits, but your membership dollars help grow the sport we love.

Being a member of OUSA comes with a long list of beneifts — from saving you money on Icebug's orienteering shoes, to discounts at Hilton hotels and Hertz rental cars, to discounts at national meets and connecting you to the orienteering community. Only OUSA provides these benefits.

*Magazine and voting benefits do not apply for Junior Members.
Six times a year, members of Orienteering USA (except Junior members) receive a copy of Orienteering North America, the only sports magazine in the two-country area specifically focused on orienteering. ONA provides interesting orienteering feature articles, news you can use, training tips, and the latest information and updates from the federation.
If you want to know what's coming up in the OUSA community but only have a few minutes, you will like our monthly e-newsletter which gives you a quick update on recent news and upcoming events.
