Orienteering Australia will send a team to contest the 2014 Junior World Orienteering Championships in Bulgaria from 21st to 27th July.
It is expected that a team of at least 4 men and 4 women will be selected. Additional team members (up to a maximum of 6 men and 6 women) may be selected depending on performance in the selection trials.
Nominations are to be made to the Chair of the Junior Selection Panel, Jan Hardy, by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). A note advising of your availability for selection is sufficient. Nominations should be received no later than Sunday, 9th March 2014. Verbal nominations will not be accepted. Late nominations may be accepted at the discretion of the selectors.
With your nomination please advise a phone contact for the days after Easter – this will make it easier for us to get the good news to you if the occasion requires.
The primary selection trials are the four races of the Easter weekend, to be held in NSW from 18th to 21st April 2014 .
Secondary selection trials will be the 2014 March National League races on March 22nd and 23rd in Victoria.
All candidates for selection are expected to compete in these events unless they have grounds for special consideration.
In such cases of special consideration, or where selection is exceptionally tight between 2 or more nominees, selectors may refer to the results of other recent major events, including 2013 JWOC and 2013 Australian Championships.
Further details of the selection criteria are available in the full selection criteria document.
