Orienteering Australia launches Orienteering Participation Plan!

With support from the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) and representatives from each member state/territory organisation, Orienteering Australia has developed a whole of sport participation plan for 2024-2025. The plan aligns with the 2022-2025 OA Strategic Plan, as well as the Australian Sport Participation Strategy, Playwell, published in late 2023.


The purpose of this plan is to take the first step towards addressing the current challenges to orienteering participation, leveraging our existing strengths and working together to ensure the ongoing existence of orienteering as an attractive sport of choice in Australia.


The Orienteering Participation Plan is a whole of sport plan, meaning that all levels of orienteering organisations in Australia will coordinate and collaborate to strive for success.


The plan is organised into four priority areas, with one of these areas enabling success in the other three. All priority areas are deemed of equal importance, including the enablers priority area which will be key to positive outcomes across the entire plan.

Progress against the plan will be tracked through the OA Participation and Engagement Network, a monthly meeting open to all orienteers to discuss participation wins, challenges, initiatives, and projects across Australia. The next meeting of this network will occur on Thursday June 13th at 8:00pm AEST, with more details on the eventor page.


To access the Participation Plan, as well as other participation resources (soon to be added), head over to the Participation Resources page of the OA website.
