Since 2016, the program has tested over 8,500 athletes at more than 100 free local events across Canada, identifying 1,000 athletes as high potential.
RBC Training Ground is an innovative, nationwide program that identifies and tests young Canadian amateur athletes through high-performance combines. Those identified as having high potential will be invited to complete sport-specific testing with National Sport Organization partners.
