JTESC and the Junior National Coaches are excited to announce the US Junior Development Team and the Junior National Team athletes for 2018. With a second coach we are excited to say we have a record number of athletes committing to and participating in the junior national program. We are excited to have a much more formal development team this year which will help our young juniors get the developmental support they need to progress to the national and international level of competition. This will help us implement a multi stage development process to better prepare the US athletes, keep more juniors involved at various levels and ultimately sustain our national teams in the long run. Here are the athletes:
Martin B Heir
Anthony (AJ) Riley
Piotr (Peter) Zakrevski
Please note we are still accepting applications for JDT and hope we can continue to grow the numbers. The work starts at home and we are looking forward to a great year. Go USA!!
Looks like a great group. Congratulations to all the athletes!
Congrats to all juniors and families! It will be a great year of orienteering!
Besides continuing to accept JDT applications, JDT members who progress sufficiently may be "promoted" to the JNT.
Congratulations to all the juniors! It is wonderful to see this program grow.
Greg Ahlswede announced two additions to the Junior Development Team:
Jordan Hertel (OCIN) and Zachary Kuder (QOC)
