NIOA Members International Representation Financial Support
NIOA members selected to run at international events outside of the island of Ireland may request a travel subsidy of up to £150 for European World Orienteering Championships, Junior World Orienteering Championships, Junior European Cup, World University Championships, European Trail Orienteering Championships and World Trail Orienteering Championships and up to £75 for Junior Home International, Senior Home International, Veteran Home International and Junior Inter-Regional Championships. Up to £50 may be claimed for selection for any of these events held on the island of Ireland. Team managers will have all travel and subsistence expenses reimbursed.
NIOA members selected to attend approved training camps (eg Lagganlia) may request a travel subsidy of costs up to £150.
Members are reminded that they are expected to explore other sources of funding before applying to NIOA. In the past members have received funding through local district councils, Mary Peter’s Trust and schools. All extra funding must be declared.
These amounts may be reduced if £1,000 per annum overall subsidy is reached. Claims with evidence of participation should be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible after the event.
Selection for the Veteran Home International is by the team captain and based on availability of the athletes rather than on set selection races. Contact Sharon Dickinson, Veteran Home International team email@example.com
Selection policies for the Senior and Junior British teams are available on the British Orienteering website.
