With the 1st two National League events looming next weekend, processes already underway for athletes competing in the first two rounds, and after giving consideration to not causing any disruption to athletes who are now in preparation, OA has decided not to continue with the Head Coach selection process at this time until after this year’s WOC in Norway (12th ~ 17th August). By delaying the decision Orienteering Australia hopes to avoid possible confusion and instability for the season ahead.
Orienteering Australia will re-commence the selection process after the World Champs with the intention of making an announcement at the Oceania Championships in October.
As a result of the postponement the current period of existing Head Coach Jim Russell will be extended until this year’s World Championships have concluded.
Any enquiries on this matter should be addressed to the Orienteering Australia Executive Officer.
