Orienteering NSW is calling for nominations for the 2022 NSW Schools Team.

Up to 20 high school students - junior boys and girls (15 and under), and senior boys and girls - are selected to compete in the Australian All Schools Championships in individual and relay races.

In 2022, the squad (known as the Carbines) will travel with a manager and coach to Victoria for a week of competition during the September/October school holidays.

Nominations close on April 9. The squad will be announced by mid-June on the ONSW website and on Facebook.

Compulsory selection events are the Armidale State Leagues on April 9-10 and the QB III carnival in Wagga on June 11-13.

Nominees are strongly encouraged to compete at all State Leagues. Please submit your nomination via Eventor. You can view the selection criteria in Eventor. Written notification to the Chair of Selectors (Rob Bennett) is required if illness, injury or exceptional circumstances prevent attendance at any race.

NSW won the Australian schools trophy in 2019 for the time in 17 years! The 2020 and 2021 championships did not happen due to Covid.
