O-Ringen Academy 2023 open to applicants

Park World Tour Organisation, in cooperation with the International Orienteering Federation and O-Ringen are pleased to invite participants to the annual O-Ringen Academy, which will take place 20-29 July, in connection with O-Ringen in Åre, Sweden.

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.

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. However, we also welcome participants from established orienteering nations who want to increase their base of knowledge.

Bulletin 1 and application documents are now published here.

Applications must be submitted by 30th April.


The IOF will give some financial support to participation in O-Ringen Academy for applicants from an orienteering developing country or a country which is not yet a member of the IOF.  Do you work actively with orienteering development in your country? Apply for the O-Ringen Academy Scholarship!
