Hungarian organization joins World OCR!

[WOCRF] Announcements

World OCR is pleased to announce the admission of OCR Hungary, RW Akadálysport Egyesület, as a Provisional Member representing Hungary, effective as of July 4, 2024.

OCR Hungary is now recognized by World OCR as the official Governing Body for the sport of OCR, Para-OCR, and all its virtual variants within its country. World OCR will extend its full support to the organization in its endeavors to gain recognition from the National Sporting authorities.

Effective from the date of admission, OCR Hungary, as the affiliated member organization, will serve as the primary point of contact for all inquiries or communications within Hungary related to the sport of OCR. This protocol reinforces the Hungary Association’s position as the refferrence authority for the developing sport of OCR in its country, thereby enhancing its ability to cultivate and maintain relationships with existing and emerging sports clubs, associations or other federations committed to the sport’s growth.

A clear and structured communication policy, spanning regional, national, and international levels, will ensure a unified and systematic approach to the sport’s development and governance across the nation. This policy also precludes the possibility of any new entities circumventing the established World OCR member when engaging with the officially registered International Governing Body for the sport, World OCR.

We welcome all national sports associations or federations that want to work towards the development and recognition of OCR as a standalone sport within their country. However, once a national sports association or federation successfully passes the evaluation period for affiliation – and it becomes validated – all inquiries receive from another application for membership will be redirected to the recognized member from within that country.
