September, 2022 thru March, 2023     OCIN TROL and WARS Season Pass
   Register now for your 2022-2023 TROL / WARS season pass, which gives free entry to all league events from November 2022 thru March 2023, plus pre-season events in Sept and Oct.
    When you register, if you have an Orienteering USA account, the registration system will auto-fill your personal information; if not, select "enter data manually".

OCIN Jersey Order
    If you have been admiring those colorful OCIN orienteering shirts, now is you opportunity to get your own. Order between now and November 20! We will have exampls of some of the sizes at the Butterworth meet for you to try on. They run slim, you'll probably want to order a size or two up from what you'd expect. There are 3 styles available, and due to a favorable exchange rate, they will actually cost just a little less than when we last ordered some in early 2021. They are made by Trimtex in Estonia, so once we close the order, it will take a couple months to get them. If you miss this chance to order, it might be a couple years before we order again.
    Order OCIN Jersey. (Order form includes links to size charts).
