The RBC Training Ground Olympic talent search, with scouts from nine Olympic sports, is holding a free event in Guelph for the first time ever.
Now entering its seventh year, RBC Training Ground has already found and funded seven Canadian Olympic medallists, and put hundreds more into Canada’s Olympic talent pipeline.
On Sunday April 24, area athletes are invited to see if they might be suited for an Olympic sport, even one they’ve never considered, and potentially earn funding for their own Olympic journey. At each qualifying event participants will perform speed, strength, power and endurance benchmark testing in front of National Sport Organizations
In year six of the program University of Guelph student Talia Hoffman was identified through the talent search and awarded Future Olympian funding by Rugby Canada.
The Guelph event is one of 14 happening across the country this Spring.
The top 100 athletes will be selected to compete in the RBC Training Ground National Final, and potentially earn funding support as an RBC Future Olympian. The National Final will take place in a time and format that places the utmost priority on the healthy and safety of participants.
WHEN AND WHERE: On Sunday April 24, this FREE opportunity for any local athlete (14-25) comes to the University of Guelph’s Guelph Gryphons Athletics Centre, 175 Reynolds Walk, in Guelph. The event will run from 9 am.. to approximately noon.
Local athletes are encouraged to register at RBCTrainingground.ca and have the chance to meet and show their core speed, power, strength and endurance to Olympic talent scouts from nine different sports.
