RBC TRAINING GROUND

 

is a talent identification and athlete funding program designed to uncover athletes with Olympic potential and provide them with the high-performance sport resources they need to achieve their podium dreams.

 
With the belief that high performance sport should be accessible to all athletes that are talented, qualified and have the will to compete, this program travels the country every year searching for athletes that will fuel the Canadian Olympic pipeline with future talent.
 
The age range of 14 to 25 years aligns with long-term athlete development stages and the Canadian Sport for Life program. This age range allows us to capture those early and late stage Olympic potential athletes. The probability of identifying an athlete below or above these age ranges, within our current RBC Training Ground partner sports, is very small.
 
Athletes should expect to be at the venue for approximately 2 hours after their registered start time. During this time, athletes will register, complete basic anthropometry measurements (height, weight, arm span), and be welcomed by RBC Olympians and representatives before the testing begins. Athletes will then be tested in pre-determined waves based on selected registration times.
