The Klompen Orientatie Vereniging Zuid (KOVZ) is an orienteering club that organizes various competitions as well as monthly training events, mostly in the South East part of the Netherlands. Once a year we also run a training week in a European country.
Orienteering is a navigation sport. The aim is to navigate along a series of checkpoints using nothing but a compass and a specially produced, very detailed map. Accurate navigation is often more important than speed which makes this sport suitable to people of all ages and a large range of fitness levels. There are many variations to the basic concept that alter the balance between navigations skills and fitness.
