2018 National Youth Squad Announcement


The selection process for the youth squad ordinarily only occurs in December/ January for the following year

Exposure to training in international terrain is a key building block to develop our athletes and therefore in April/ May 2018 there will be an international training camp to Sweden for a limited number of members of the youth squad.

In order to assist in budgeting for such a trip  (which will be self-funded) the selection committee has concluded its selections for the training camp.

We are therefore pleased to announce that the following athletes have been invited to attend the camp, and have therefore also been selected for the 2018 Youth squad

Kirsten Chambers (RACO), Carla Collins (PENOC), Sarah Everett (RACO), Cameron Ferreira (ROC), Tristan Malherbe (RACO), Tinus Swanepoel (RACO), Luan Swart (RACO), Heather Wimberley (RACO), Sarah Wimberley (RACO),

We congratulate them all and wish them the best in their orienteering.


This announcement is made on behalf of the SAOF Selection Committee by
