WA School Teams, Junior Camp, and Training Events

WA Orienteering School Team

 

OWA selects a School Team of up to 16 members to represent WA at the Australian Schools Orienteering Carnival, which is held in different states each September / October. WA Orienteering School Team Qualifying events for 2020 will be announced shortly, and the nomination form will be issued then too. You will also need to ensure you are familiar with the team selection policy.

 

SELECTION TRIALS
Performance at a range of events will be considered as per the nominated events and selection policy. Attendance is also required at the Secondary School Championships.

 

Junior Training Camp

 The yearly training camp takes place in the July school holidays for our junior members, and is run by our accredited coaches. We provide for a wide range of orienteering abilities. The camp is suitable for young people who enjoy orienteering, want to learn more about it and have a fun time with other young people. The camp is open to orienteers aged from 10 to 17 years who have participated in at least one bush event or NavDash event in addition to any school events.

To attend the camp you need to be a member of Orienteering WA.

You'll find a review of the 2019 camp in the July Edition of O Xpress (page 12) and plenty of photos on our Facebook page.

Training Events

Weekly training sessions that will help prepare you both physically and technically for orienteering competition. Contact the OWA Coaching Convenor for further information and subscribe to the Enews which provides details of weekly training sessions through out the year.
