British Orienteering selects teams to compete at all IOF Competitions and a number of other international competitions.
The overall aim of selection is to maximise the opportunity to gain medals and top 10 places at World and Junior World Orienteering Championships and to create sustainability by using other IOF recognised competitions and JEC to develop and prepare athletes for future international success.
Each competition serves a different purpose to the British Orienteering talent & performance programme and the selection process and criteria for each is tailored to deliver this purpose.
The following selection documents are currently available:
