Team NL Athlete Identification Program - 2025 Canada Games
Hey there! Have you heard about the Canada Summer Games in St. John’s in August 2025?
These Canada Games will be our biggest and best multi-sport competition with athletes from 14 to 23 years old from all over the country competing in 18 different sports.
The Games are a big deal for our Province and Team NL wants the best performance possible. With 18 different sports competing there will be lots of medals and top performances to compete for.
To that end, The NL Sports Centre (NLSC) is looking to see if it can unearth athletes with exceptional athletic ability that could potentially be paired with one of a number or sports that may or may not be known to you such as, Cycling (road and mountain), Athletics, Rugby 7s, Canoe/Kayak or maybe others.
We believe our province has some exceptional athletes that we can identify by undertaking the following tests of athletic ability;
o Speed (10 & 20M sprint)
o Strength (Isometric Pull)
o Power (Vertical Jump)
o Endurance (20M Shuttle Test)
NLSC High Performance staff will be travelling to the areas at the dates and times listed below to test any athlete, regardless of any sporting experience, to see if they have what it takes to be a candidate for one of these 2025 Canada Games Sports.
So, if you are 14 to 18 years old now and you think you have what it takes, please register at this link - Register here: schoolsportsnl.us19.list-manage.com/track/click?u=f42ecf8df4e2e5c81a9e034f0&id=c36a4e3baf&e=862b9... .
