Athletes ages 14 to 25 are invited to the event, a qualifier for the national final in Calgary.

Last year, nine athletes at the Kamloops stop were discovered to have high-performance potential.

Talent scouts and officials from organizations including Canada Snowboard, Speed Skating Athletics Canada, Canoe Kayak Canada, Cycling Canada, Rowing Canada, Rugby Canada and Freestyle Ski Canada will be searching for hidden gems and potential cross-over talent.

More than 30 combines will be held across Canada. Some athletes will be chosen as RBC Future Olympians and receive funding and resources to pursue their Olympic dreams.
