The IOF WOC Clinic offers talented athletes from IOF member federations which cannot afford to send a team to the WOC to participate in the WOC by providing them accommodation, local transport and high level coaching. The IOF WOC Clinic also focuses on learning of orienteering skills and exchange of knowledge and experience with orienteering development between participating athletes and the Clinic coaches.
The IOF WOC Clinic 2019 was organized in Moss, Norway. 12 athletes from 3 continents and 9 countries (5 women and 7 men) participated in this Clinic. All of them appreciated trainings before the WOC competitions, evaluation/analyses of trainings and competitions, and mainly being part of a team that supported and backed each other.
The call for applications for the IOF WOC Clinic 2020 in Denmark will be announced during the autumn.
