Each year the national team is selected to represent the United States at international orienteering events around the world. These athletes compete in numerous high-level international competitions including the World Cup, World Orienteering Championships and more. Athletes apply to be part of the national team on an annual basis. Applications are due at the end of December each year with the team being decided in January.

Athletes selected to compete for TeamUSA are grouped into three squads: Elite, Performance & Junior.  On occasion additional athletes will earn a spot on on the National Team mid-season by qualifying for a specific international championship via team trials or petition process.


Important 2024 Trials Update:

  • WOC team trials will be a little different this year. We will have two events that will both serve as trials.
    • The US-based event will be Sprint Storrs held at the University of Connecticut on 11 May. For those interested, the iconic Billygoat will be the next day, in New Hampshire.
    • We will also use Sprint Scotland, 3-4 May, as a Euro-based trials. Note that for both events, there will be just one automatic qualifier of each gender and there must be a minimum of three eligible athletes trying out in order for the top athlete to automatically qualify. 
    • Review the WOC Selection Criteria here.
    • All athletes MUST REGISTER for the Sprint Storrs event on EventReg and declare their intent to be considered for this year’s team.  Those athletes competing at Sprint Scotland and/or petioning can select ‘Not Competing N/C’ when registering and select the appropriate entry from the Team Declaration dropdown menu.  Sprint Storrs registration closes May 1st.
  • In all cases, we will also accept petitions for athletes who are unable to attend a trials event but wish to be considered.
  • More details will be forthcoming, but we wanted to let you know the timing of these important events so you can put them in your training calendar.
