RBC Training Ground 2023
RBC Training Ground is a free program that seeks out young Canadian athletes with Olympic potential. Participants are evaluated against high-performance training tests under the watchful eye of NSO partners. Athletes identified as having high potential receive funding and other forms of support – like structured mentorship opportunities – to hopefully reach an Olympic podium.
Speed Skating Canada and RBC Training Ground have partnered to identify athletes within three main categories:
1. Talent Identification
2. Talent Confirmation
3. Talent Transition (short track/long track)
