The OUSA Junior Team Executive Steering Committee (JTESC) is excited to announce the USA Junior National Team and the Junior Development Team athletes for 2020.
This year will see changes in the National Junior Program as we move to expand the National Junior Program (NJP) support structure for both the athletes and the Junior National Coach (JNC) (to be named), by adding local and regional coaches and mentors who will assist and be guided by the JNC.

Please note that we are still accepting applications for the Junior Development Team (JDT), and will be doing so throughout the year.
We encourage all juniors, ages 13-20, who run confidently at the Orange level (or above), and who want to connect with other young people who love orienteering, and want to take their orienteering to the next level, to join the 2020 JDT.
CONGRATULATIONS THOMAS, WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!!!
