RBC Training Ground

RBC Training Ground is a talent identification and athlete funding program designed to find young Canadian athletes with Olympic potential, and provide them with the resources they need to achieve their podium dreams.

Pierce Lepage
  • A club level track athlete when discovered by RBC Training Ground in 2016, Pierce LePage has used RBC’s support to climb both the national and world rankings in decathlon, and now approaches Tokyo 2020 as an Olympic medal contender.
Kelsey Mitchell
  • Before Kelsey participated in RBC Training Ground, she was finishing her university soccer career and thought she might be retiring her athlete status. Since then, Kelsey has broken a world record in a completely different sport – sprint track cycling – and is heading to her first Olympic Games with podium potential, thanks to RBC.
