Do you have any ideas for developing the Junior World Orienteering Championships? (Any aspect of it). The IOF is inviting you to send in suggestions before 23rd June 2014.
The IOF Foot Orienteering Commission (FOC) was asked earlier this year by the IOF Council to further develop the programme of the Junior World Orienteering Championships (JWOC). The project group’s report should be presented to the Council by October 2014. Introduction of a possible new programme should take place by 2018 at the latest.
Áron Less, as the FOC member responsible for JWOCs, is commissioned to form a project group to perform this task. The project group will be formed of former JWOC participants (current elite athletes), junior and senior coaches, past and future JWOC organisers, and other experts.
At the first stage, we are making an open call for ideas from different stakeholders. Any ideas from Federations, coaches, competitors, media, former and future organisers and everyone else interested are particularly welcome.
Please write an informal letter to Áron Less (aronless (at) gmail.com) by 23rd June about any ideas you have for developing the Junior World Orienteering Championships (any aspect of it).
The project group will then shortlist the most viable ideas and the Federations’ official opinion will be requested. A very important stage of the hearing process will be a presentation of the ideas during JWOC 2014 for the national team coaches.
