NSW Junior Development Squad

Each year Orienteering NSW provides support to promising young orienteers through additional training opportunities. The squad generally has one or two week-long school holiday camps each year as well as a pre-Christmas training (and socialising) weekend. At the camps, the juniors traditionally have an opportunity to train with NSW elites and also receive high level coaching.

The training opportunities granted by the squad provide an excellent platform for juniors to develop their skills. Juniors will normally develop their orienteering in the squad prior to pressing for selection in the NSW Schools Team and progression into elite level orienteering.

To be considered for selection in the squad, juniors must be attending high school. Selection in the NSW Schools team is based on performances in State League events in prior years and all members must be orienteering at least at a Moderate level of course difficulty. Minimum fitness requirements also apply.

The manager for the squad is Helen O'Callaghan

The squad coach is Bjorn Mella.
