(Previously referred to as Junior Standing Team)
The team consists of approximately 12 men and 12 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 23, 2014.
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.
In 2015, selection of competitors for the JWOC Team will be based on the rankings, selection races, and petition critera publicized in 2014. You do not have to be on the National Team to be selected for the 2015 JWOC Team; however, the National Team supports athletes who are training for JWOC and other competition.
