O-Ringen Academy is a place for orienteering runners from different countries and on different levels, including beginners, to meet and exchange their experience and learn new.
O-Ringen Academy is primarily intended for participants from new and developing orienteering countries, where there is a need to quickly learn the skills and routines required to organize orienteering events.
The Academy provides a unique opportunity for orienteering federations and interested individuals to work on developing the sport in their home countries. The idea behind O-Ringen Academy is, through the transfer of knowledge and experience, to develop individual competency to be able to promote, organize and teach orienteering and at the same time participate in the world’s greatest orienteering event, O-Ringen.
However, we also welcome participants from established orienteering nations who want to increase their base of knowledge.
O-Ringen Academy is supported by IOF. Global Development Commission (GDC) has set aside 5000 Euro for scholarship to support this important idea.
