The INVOC Club League

 The INVOC Club League is an annual competition for INVOC club members. Members score points for successful completion of their course at designated League events through the year, and are ranked on their performance. The League was started to encourage club members to come to more local colour coded events and to give more competitive orienteering for members who didn't travel further afield to larger events. The League is split into different divisions and small trophies are awarded to the first 3 in each.

For 2018 the League rules have changed (see below) with the intention of encouraging greater participation at events and also to make things fairer for everyone. As this is the first year with the new system it may not work perfectly at first so bear with us. The 4 leagues are:

Senior Male League - for M18+

Senior Female League - for W18+

Junior Male League - for M12, M14 and M16

Junior Female League - for W12, W14 and W16

British Orienteering Rankings: Second year M/W16s and above who are British Orienteering members are also included in the BO Rankings - a sort of giant UK-wide league. You can get ranking points at most Level C and other bigger events. You can look at your position in the club, in your age class, or in Scotland - no prizes, but it can be fun and a challenge to try and climb the list. Your six best scores over a rolling year count. Have a look on the British Orienteering website rankings page.

 The Leagues Explained - information, rules etc.

Which events are included? INVOC Level C and Level D events, Moravian Level C events, BASOC Level C events, Compass Sport Cup and local SOL events (in INVOC, Moravian or BASOC areas). For all competitors the best 5 scores of the year count.

How does it work?

1. Every INVOC member will be allocated a standard course colour based on their age category following BOF guidelines as follows:

Age Class Colour   Age Class Colour
M10 Yellow   W10 Yellow
M12 Orange   W12 Orange
M14 Light Green   W14 Light Green
M16 Blue   W16 Green
M18 Brown   W18 Blue
M20 Brown   W20 Blue
M21 Brown   W21 Short Brown
M35 Brown   W35 Blue
M40 Brown   W40 Blue
M45 Short Brown   W45 Short Blue
M50 Short Brown   W50 Short Blue
M55 Blue   W55 Green
M60 Blue   W60 Green
M65 Short Blue   W65 Short Green
M70 Green   W70 Short Green
M75 Short Green   W75 Short Green
M80 Short Green   W80 Short Green

 2. If you run up or down from your designated colour then your score increases or decreases proportionally. If you run up a full colour (e.g. Green to Blue) then your score is increased by 20% and reduced by 20% if you run down a full colour. Running up or down within a colour (e.g. Short Blue to Blue) then it's a 10% multiplier. If you go up or down several colours then the multipliers add up (e.g. Yellow to Light Green means a 40% multiplier).

3. For each colour course in qualifying events the average of the first 3 finishers' times is calculated.

4. Finally you score is calculated using this formula:

Your score = (average of first 3 finishers)/your time) * 1000 * (colour multiplier from above table)


You are W40 so should run Blue but you run Brown (20% multiplier).

Average of first 3 on Brown = 4093 seconds

Your time = 4365 seconds

Your Score = 4093/4365 * 1000 * 1.2  = 1125

Event officials: If, at the end of the year, someone misses out on getting scores for the counting number of events for the year (e.g. has 3 scores when it is best 5 to count) due to planning, organising or controlling one of the League events they can claim points for that event. The points awarded would be the average of the person's other counting scores.

So what's the secret of winning? First of all, go to as many events as you can. You will see from the results that most years there are people who could have won their League if they had been to the full number of counting events, and people who go to more events can discard their lowest scores.
