Irish Junior Squad
Who Are We?
We are an inclusive group of young orienteers (aged 13-20, with some younger aspirants) from each of the four provinces of Ireland, who train and work hard together to hopefully be selected to represent our country on the international stage. We are assisted in this by a team of volunteer coaches, managers, selectors and supporters from Orienteering Ireland (OI) and the Northern Irish Orienteering Association (NIOA) that help us to improve our skills, get fitter and stronger, and reach our full potential individually and as a team.
