a. The results of national and international competition.
b. Dedication to the sport of Orienteering.
c. Demonstration of sporting attitude.
From the OUSA website, Criteria for Selection to the Senior Team:
Selection is based on those who submitted Athlete Agreements, indicating their desire to be named to the Sr. Team. From that pool, National meet and international M/F-21+ performances during the preceding year were used to divide the members into Elite, Performance and Development teams.
- Senior Elite Team — athletes who consistently produce top-level U.S. results in F21/M21.
- Senior Performance Team — athletes who frequently produce strong U.S. results in F21/M21, at or near the level of the Elite Team.
- Senior Development Team — athletes who have demonstrated potential to reach Performance/Elite level with further training and experience.
