OA has now decided to allow junior participation in MTBO JWOC, given that it is being held simultaneously with MTBO WOC in Portugal from July 11-17. However there will be very limited or no financial support from OA but hopefully states and clubs will assist to some degree. Individuals rather than a whole team will be selected and they will be coached by Kay Haarsma along with the elite team.
All interested juniors must attend the selection trials in NSW on March 20-21 and should let the chair of selectors, Peta Whitford, at firstname.lastname@example.org Kay Haarsma email@example.com know of their interest, so as to be included in squad emails and receive further information.
