(Previously referred to as Junior Standing Team)
For more information on the Junior National Team and JWOC Team selection, contact Coach Erin with questions (erin_schirm [at] orienteeringusa.org; 845-364-1752).
The team consists of approximately 10 men and 10 women committed to training at a high level for the sport of orienteering. All National Team members will represent the USA, and be eligible to purchase and wear the Team USA uniform. Applications are linked below, and are due by December 21, 2015.
National Team members will be coached by the U.S. Team Coach, Erin Schirm. There will be five yearly training camps, of which team members are expected to attend at least two. Team members will receive the benefits of any sponsors supporting the Team, and have priority for OUSA travel grants. Team members will have a voice in how the team is run.
You do not have to be on the National Team to be selected for the 2016 JWOC Team; however, the National Team supports athletes who are training for JWOC and other competition.
