EVER WONDER IF YOU COULD BE AN OLYMPIAN?
The RBC Training Ground campaign is currently gaining momentum across the country and is now in its second year! The unique athlete recruitment program is searching far and wide for Canada's next great Olympian. Who will it be?
The search is on at 25 local qualifying events and five regional finals throughout Canada. This FREE one day camp is open to athletes aged 14-25, targeting both young athletes who are talented in their sport as well as older athletes with untapped potential to transfer to a new sport.
Athletes are evaluated on their speed, power, strength and endurance through several different tests. They are also aiming to achieve performance benchmarks set by National Sport Organizations (NSOs) scouting for talented athletes with Olympic medal potential.
