Attention, QOC Juniors: The deadline for submitting an application to be part of the Orienteering USA 2016 National Team is this Monday. We encourage all QOC Juniors to apply for the Team if  interested.


The team consists of approximately 10 men and 10 women committed to training at a high level for the sport of orienteering. All OUSA National Team members will represent the USA, and be eligible to purchase and wear the OUSA Team USA uniform. Applications are available on the OUSA website here, and are due by Monday, December 21, 2015.

National Team members will be coached by the U.S. Team Coach, Erin Schirm. There will be five 2016 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 Junior World Orienteering Championships Team (JWOC 2016, held July 9 - 16 in Switzerland); however, the National Team supports athletes who are training for JWOC and other competition.
