Orienteering is a part of the National Student Games in the Dominican Republic, most recently held in Gaspar Hernández in the Espaillat province. The country is one of the newest IOF Member Federations, gaining its provisional membership in 2015. Orienteering in the country has taken a big step forward during the last year, and a lot of work has been done by the IOF regional coordinator Jose Ángel Nieto Poblete. The Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Sports, INEFI and the Dominican Olympic Committee are also working on the development of Orienteering in the country.

MetaA lot of work has been also done by Danilo Mesa, Executive Director of INEFI and Martin Quezada, President of FEDOMO (Dominican Orienteering Federation). The crew at FEDOMO is using all their important contacts to establish orienteering in as many organisations as possible, and with good results. The national school is the most important partner to establish the sport of orienteering among youngsters. In the national school games, the young students had the possibility to test orienteering and try all the different parts of the sport.
