ABOUT OUR PROJECT
Vompatti OK is the association of some young orienteering athletes from the Zurich region with the idea to use synergies in the complex organisation of training and travelling to competitions, to advance each other in training theory and mental work and to push each other to top performances. But above all, of course, to spend an unforgettable time together. In contrast to Scandinavian clubs, very few orienteering clubs in Switzerland are able to maintain a training operation that provides junior and elite athletes with the facilities they need to be able to compete at the highest level. While our home clubs have played an important part in making us who we are today, Vompatti OK is designed to bridge the gap between club and national team and to enable those who pursue a competitive sports career to join the national and therefore the international elite. We are very loosely organised and try to conduct our joint training sessions with as little effort as possible. Since we are not accountable to anyone but ourselves, we enjoy a certain freedom, which allows us to adjust the training times very individually and also to test and apply new training concepts.
Furthermore we want to try to take our responsibility towards the following generations and remind the rest of the orienteering family of this responsibility from time to time.
Here on the website some of us who like to write will maintain a blog where you can learn about our training philosophy, our experiences in training and competition and other projects. If you want, you can also subscribe to the newsletter.
Furthermore, we hope that this website will provide a platform for possible sponsors in the future. You can find more information here.
