Orienteering USA supports a number of teams which represent the United States at international orienteering competitions in a variety of disciplines. The teams provide visibility for the federation at home and abroad, and host competitions and instruction for Orienteering USA members and the general public.
Since 1980, the U.S. and Canadian teams have competed for the Björn Kjellström Cup every two years at the North American Orienteering Championships. The cup was named in honor of a Swede who was instrumental in introducing orienteering in North America.
In 2012, the competition opened to teams from any country that is a member of the International Orienteering Federation in the North American Region. There will now also be a team competition between the countries at the junior level, with the Future Champions Cup awarded to the winning team. Find out more about the Cups and the competition.
