POWER: Vertical Jump – to assess the explosiveness of the lower body
SPEED: 20m Metre Sprint – to assess running velocity
STRENGTH: Isometric Mid-Thigh Pull – to assess general full-body muscular strength
ENDURANCE: 20 Metre Multi-Stage Shuttle Run – to assess general full-body endurance

A virtual qualifier will be available to athletes who cannot make it to the event in person. Please see the Training Ground FAQ for more information.

Athletes who meet or exceed performance benchmarks set by national sport officials will be invited to attend the RBC Training Ground Final, where they’ll compete for a chance to receive funding and support to fuel their passion and ambition towards Olympic glory.

*Coaches and talent identification representatives from the 9 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. Manitoba’s regional finalists can expect to receive an invitation by email.
