2011 O-Ringen Academy

Information about the 2011 O-Ringen Academy is now available here.

The organizers of O-Ringen Hälsingland 2011, in cooperation with the International Orienteering Federation, are pleased to invite you to participate in the annual O-Ringen Academy International, which will be held in connection with the O-Ringen competition in Mohed, Hälsingland, Sweden.

Purpose:
The aim of O-Ringen Academy is to assist the development of orienteering around the world. It does this by providing selected representatives from developing orienteering countries with education and training designed to help grow the sport in the countries concerned. Participants in the Academy International will also receive training to develop their own individual skill levels in the sport.

Academy International is a unique opportunity for orienteering federations and interested individuals to work on developing the sport in their home countries. The idea behind Academy International is, through the transfer of knowledge and experience, to develop individual competency to be able to promote, organize and teach orienteering in your own country and at the same time participate in the world’s greatest orienteering event, O-Ringen.

The 2011 Academy has two streams:
Level 1 – Beginner
What is required in order to start up orienteering in your country?
The focus here is on the three base areas (all participants undergo the same programme):
1) Map drawing
2) Organisation – training and simple competitions
3) Beginners orienteering – coaching beginners

Level 2 – Advanced
What is required in order to further develop orienteering in your country, in specific areas?
Here you should choose the area you would like to focus on:
1) Map drawing
2) Organisation – bigger orienteering events
3) Advanced orienteering – coaching juniors and seniors
4) Trail-O

Many Canadians have attended in the past and would recommend the experience.
