NSW Schools Orienteering Team 2021
Orienteering NSW will be sending a team to the 2021 Australian Schools Orienteering Championships to be held in Tasmania, between the 28th and 30th of September 2021. The team will consist of a maximum of 20 athletes, with a maximum of 6 athletes in each of the four classes.

The four classes are Junior Boys and Girls (Athletes 15 and under on the 31st of December 2021) and Senior Boys and Girls.

To be eligible to be selected, athletes must be 12 years of age or older on the 31st of December
2021, enrolled in a NSW School, in years 7 to 12, and be a full ONSW member for 2021.

Selection Process
To be considered as a potential NSW Schools Orienteering Team Member at the 2021 Australian Schools Championships in Tasmania, athletes will need to:

1. Nominate
Athletes should nominate through Eventor by the 14th April 2021. Nominees will also need to send their school, date of birth, and the class in which they will be competing for the selection events to the Chair of Selectors, Rob Bennett (bennett.robert06@gmail.com).

2. Participate
a. Athletes must compete in State Leagues 3 and 4 (May 15-16 in Broulee), and the QBIII carnival (12th to 14th June, around Newcastle), in your A level age class: M/W14A, M/W16A, M/W18A, M/W20A or M/W20E. If you are unable to compete in ANY of these events, you must notify the Chair of Selectors before the event, stating the reason.
b. You are strongly encouraged to compete in all other state leagues and the Australian 3 Days. These events may be used to separate athletes where necessary.
c. Athletes should also participate in other orienteering events, at club or regional level.
d. Athletes over the age of 17 are encouraged to compete in all NOL events for the NSW Stingers (please email the NSW Stingers managers Bec, Rob and Toby at nswstingers@gmail.com if you are new to the NSW Stingers).

3. Commit to the Sport
This is demonstrated by athletes taking opportunities to compete and train wherever possible. Athletes over the age of 16 should also be following a structured training program. It is suggested this is prepared by a coach, mentor and/or parent.

Team Announcement
The Schools team will be announced by 1 week after the final selection race, by email to individual athletes, and on the Orienteering NSW website. Please note that all positions in the team are provisional based on continued participation in events up to the Australian Schools Carnival, and fitness. Athletes who cannot compete in any selection races or will be competing but have a significant inhibition to their ability to perform, should contact the chair of selectors as soon as possible.

Selectors: Rob Bennett (Chair, bennett.robert06@gmail.com), Michele Dawson, Toby Wilson
