About NTOA

North Texas Orienteering Association, founded in 1986, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the support and growth of orienteering in the northeastern part of the Lone Star State. It is chartered under Orienteering USA, which in turn is a member of the International Orienteering Federation.

Proceeds from NTOA events and membership dues go toward production of maps for future orienteering events. Membership entitles you to a discount off the entry fee to NTOA events and the privilege of donning our fierce armadillo jersey. Plus, training events are conducted periodically. Join online right now!
