O-Ringen Academy 2024 is waiting for your application

Applications are now open for the annual O-Ringen Academy, which takes place in southern Sweden from July 19th – 28th, 2024 in conjunction with the world’s greatest orienteering event O-Ringen.

The academy is organised by the Park World Tour Organisation in cooperation with the International Orienteering Federation and O-Ringen, and it 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 O-Ringen.

Happy participants at O-Ringen Academy.

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

Find the bulletin and all the details about applying here – the application deadline for participation is April 30th.

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.

Applications for IOF scholarship for O-Ringen Academy 2024 must be submitted by April 1st.
