O-Ringen Academy 2019

Goals and participation

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.
