Senior National Team
In 2010, the Executive Director provided the OUSA Board of Directors with a 4-year Strategic Plan. Of all the documents the Strategic Planning Committee has reviewed, this is the most comprehensive, including input from across the breadth and diversity of the OUSA community. In order not to re-invent the wheel, this questionnaire focuses on the Senior National Team.

If you see an area you are interested in, we would like your input to:
1) validate whether the 2010 goals remain important today
2) revise 2010 goals and introduce new ones*
3) prioritize the most important goals
4) identify volunteers with the time, passion, and/or resources to turn goals into reality

*We have updated some of the goals to reflect those that are realities today, but we have likely missed some. Please let us know in the section on revising priorities that were listed in the 2010 document.

Thank you for all you do for orienteering!

Select orienteers to the Senior Team who will be perceived by the U.S. orienteering community as the pinnacle of orienteering in the U.S. Senior Team members will work with a coach, submit annual training plans of 300-500 hours per year, participate in 2 training camps per year, race in at least 8 national-level races annually, win all medals at US Individual Championships, maintain over 90 points in national rankings, and win the Bjorn Kjellstrom Cup at NAOC.
Improve the performance of Senior Team athletes to world-class levels. Support the team in achieving top 25 (men) and top 18 (women) in the forest relay, top 30 in an individual final (women), and qualifying for an individual final (men). Select athletes who can achieve top 300 in WRE rankings.
Provide a sponsored athlete contract for selected team members.
Provide 100% funding for Senior Team athletes to attend WOC
Publish at least 3 articles / posts from each Senior Team member annually
Create common national team uniform, marketing and fundraising materials
Establish a single national team committee with agreed upon goals, spending plans and shared revenue sources
Promote national team programs competing at high levels of international excellence under one name and banner – Team USA
In partnership with key Foot and Trail Orienteering committees, investigate an opportunity to create a high profile “orienteering event” to be held in the spring to attract attention to orienteering. This could take the form of a national event with more fully developed recreational orienteering opportunities.
