RBC Training Ground coming to UBC Okanagan Gymnasium in April

KELOWNA, B.C. – RBC Training Ground is returning to the UBC Okanagan campus as the department of athletics and recreation will host the Olympic talent identification camp on Sunday, April 10 at the UBCO Gymnasium.

Last hosted on campus back in February 2020 prior to the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, RBC Training Ground is a talent identification and athlete funding program designed to find young athletes with Olympic potential, and provide them with the resources they need to achieve their podium dreams. The program assesses young athletes using basic tests that measure speed, strength, power, and endurance capabilities.

This year's event is the only one in the province of British Columbia outside of metro Vancouver and athletes aged 14 to 25 are encouraged to register by visiting the RBC Training Ground website.
