Selection Criteria for 2023

Team Nomination

The World Championships are being held in the Czech Republic (18-27th August) but team members will also be required to attend the overseas pre-champs training camp in the weeks beforehand.  Riders receive some funding support from Orienteering Australia but will need to pay their own airfare, uniform and other travel expenses.

OA is also seeking expressions of interest for the positions of Team Manager and Team Coach.
