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.
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 and the probability of identifying an athlete below or above these age ranges is very small.
There are 14 national sport organization (NSO) partners involved in the 2018 RBC Training Ground. They are:
- Basketball (Women’s)
- Bobsleigh Skeleton
- Canoe Kayak
- Speed Skating
- Cross Country Ski
- Water Polo
Coaches and talent identification representatives from the 14 participating national sport organizations (NSO) select the top 100 athletes based on their performance at the local qualifier events. They are looking for athletes who met or exceeded the predetermined benchmarks set by each of the sports.
