RBC Training Ground Athlete Testing

May 1, 2023

On April 29 and 30, RBC Training Ground set up testing stations in Cape Breton and in Truro as part of a partnership between Team Mi'kmaw Nova Scotia, RBC and the Canadian Sport Institute Atlantic. 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 dreams. During these sessions, athletes had the opportunity to take part in the testing which involved measuring speed, strength, power and endurance capabilities. It was a great weekend and all of the Athletes who participated did very well. We are looking forward to continuing to work with our partners in the future as we continue to encourage young Mi'kmaw athletes to strive for their best.
