HELP DISCOVER CANADA’S NEXT GENERATION
OF OLYMPIC ATHLETES

RBC Training Ground is here – a day of physical challenges for athletes to showcase their podium potential. To see if they’ve got what it takes to be Canada’s next great Olympic athlete, athletes will compete in four exercises that include:

POWER: Vertical Jump – to measure the explosiveness of the lower body
SPEED: 10/30/40 Metre Sprint – to evaluate running velocity
STRENGTH: Isometric Mid-Thigh Pull– to gauge muscular strength and power
ENDURANCE: 20 Metre Multi-Stage Shuttle Run– to assess general full-body aerobic power

Athletes who meet or exceed performance benchmarks set by national sport officials will be invited to attend the RBC Training Ground regional final where they’ll compete for a chance to receive funding and support to fuel their passion and ambition towards Olympic glory. Five *Top performers will get the ultimate sport experience – a trip to the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
