OA would like to thank all of those athletes who nominated to be a part of the 2023 National Squads. We were very fortunate to have such a large group of over 65 athletes interested in being in a squad, which is a very promising sign for the next few years of elite orienteering in Australia.
We have two formal Squads to announce, the High Performance squad and the National Development squad. Those that are not named in the two squads will be included as a part of our ongoing communication channels and events, such as event preview zoom meetings.
Please note that it is not necessary to be named in a squad to nominate for International teams, and Athletes can apply to be a part of a squad at any time throughout the year if they believe they meet the eligibility criteria.
We are very grateful to have the assistance of highly experienced and enthusiastic squad leaders, who will be contacting and working with the athletes within their squads.
High Performance Squad
(Leaders, Julian Dent, Grant Bluett, Tash Key, Matt Crane)
National Development Squad
(Leaders Paula Shingler, Jock Davies and Tracy Marsh)
