2016 Junior National Team announced

The Junior Team Executive Steering Committee (JTESC) is pleased to announce the U.S. Junior National Team for 2016. These young women and men will represent the USA at international competitions, and train at a high level for orienteering.

They have each committed to outlining and maintaining a regular training program (under the guidance of U.S. Junior Team Coach Erin Schirm), recording their training, attending the JWOC Selection Races in March, maintaining an OrienteeringUSA ranking, and attending two national training camps. They are also committed to giving back to their clubs in the form of orienteering education for beginners and course reviews for the younger juniors.

Congratulations to all!
