Now the entry for Academy 2016 is open! Welcome to a week full of orienteering development during O-Ringen 2016.
The aim of O-Ringen Academy is to assist the development of orienteering around the world. Now the invitation for Academy 2016 is available.
The aim of O-Ringen Academy is to assist the development of orienteering around the world. It does this by providing selected representatives from developing orienteering countries with education and training designed to help grow the sport in the countries concerned.Participants in the Academy will also receive training to develop their own individual skill levels in the sport.
Academy is a unique opportunity for orienteering federations and interested individuals to work on developing the sport in their home countries. The idea behind Academy is, through the transfer of knowledge and experience, to develop individual competency to be able to promote, organize and teach orienteering in your own country and at the same time participate in the world's greatest orienteering event, O-Ringen.
Academy is primarily intended for participants from new and developing orienteering countries, where there is a need to quickly learn new skills and routines needed to organize orienteering events.
Academy will each year host around 30-50 participants, from countries identified by IOF. All those selected for the Academy must be involved in developing orienteering in their country and, in the event of there being more applications than the places available, priority will be given to those individuals who are likely to make the greatest contribution to growing the sport. We recommend that the participant should be 18 years and older.
