- March 16, 2016

Kinduct Technologies, provider of innovative data collection and analysis software, is pleased to partner with the Canadian Olympic Foundation in supporting a new talent identification program called RBC Training Ground. The program is a series of regional combine events designed to help Canadian sport officials uncover athletes with Olympic podium potential. A collaborative effort between RBC, CBC, the Canadian Olympic Foundation (COF) and the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC), RBC Training Ground was hosted in Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto and Halifax in 2016.

At RBC Training Ground, athletes perform a set of workouts that measure speed, power, strength and endurance. Using performance benchmarks provided by high-performance officials from various national sport organizations, Kinduct Technologies can collect and analyze these young athletes’ results, and ultimately determine if they exhibit Olympic-level fitness potential.

“This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of the talent identification for our young athletes,” said Ali Oxner, Product Specialist at Kinduct Technologies. “We look forward to building our relationship with the Canadian Olympic Foundation – and utilizing our athlete management suite of innovative tools both in health and performance to bring out the best in elite athletes.”

“RBC Training Ground is touching 400 athletes across the country in 2016. With 16 benchmarks being evaluated per athlete, the program generates a great deal of data that is valuable to the Canadian sport system,” says Katie Cheesbrough, Marketing and Partnerships Manager, COF. “Kinduct Technologies is a highly effective measurement tool for coaches, high-performance directors, and the athletes themselves.”
