England Selection

Once you are a M/W14 you can try to be selected to represent England. To do this you will need to compete in the appropriate selection races. The selectors will then look at the results from these races and select the best. There are two weekends of races that you can be selected for; - The Junior Home International where England competes against Scotland, Wales and Ireland. - Interland where England competes against Germany and teams from Belgium. We have had many juniors represent England over the years going on to represent Great Britain in later years. www.orienteeringengland.org.uk
