Recruitment Camps

Do you have what it takes to be a champion?

Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton's recruitment team travels across Canada each year searching for the next generation of Canadian Bobsleigh and Skeleton Champions. Athletes must be hard working and motivated with explosive power, strength and speed, and who have a team mentality.

 

For a nominal $20 fee, athletes in cities from coast to coast are invited to be assessed against our recruitment standards, which include speed testing for 15- and 30-metre sprints, along with various explosive strength tests.

We look forward to having you come out to a BCS Recruitment Camp, and test yourself against our standards, see if you have what it takes to be a bobsleigh or skeleton athlete.
