On behalf of former, current, and future members of Orienteering USA's National Junior Program and their families, we extend a huge thank you to Peter Gagarin, Erin Schirm, and Greg Ahlswede for their vision, support, expertise, and hard work in establishing and expanding the NJP and taking junior orienteering in the US to the next level.
As we embark on the next stage, we appreciate the strong foundation provided by Erin, Greg, and Peter on which we will continue to build the NJP.

It starts at home!
Yes, thanks indeed!!
Is that all there is to say on this?
What is the next stage? Maybe it is obvious to most; however, I get most of my orienteering news now solely from AP ...
OK—at least there is an intent to continue the initiative.
I hope that there is support and interest in this.
I might know of a few young individuals that may or may not want a program and coach to support them :) I know having Erin and Greg as coaches is what made me into the orienteerer I am today and I can't thank them enough, nor individuals like Peter who supported us so much alongside the way.
