Athletes wanting to join the High Performance Program are reminded that applications are due Dec 31, 2012. The details are all listed in the athlete handbook on the High Performance Program web page.

And new for 2013!!!
The Sass Peepre Committee is starting a new program for young athletes who might be interested in joining the High Performance Program in coming years and who would like a program now to help them move in that direction. This program will give athletes, mostly in the 14 to 16 year age group, an opportunity to have some coaching, guidance and support for their training as they progress towards more serious training and competition. A national network of Junior Orienteers will also help build friendships and strengthen peer support for these young athletes. If you are interested in learning more about this new junior group, please contact Anne Teutsch at anne AT teutsch DOT ca.
