The Rising Stars Program
The "Rising Stars" Endurance Development Academy Program is a track program designed to support athletes that have potential and ambition of making it onto an Olympic podium. The program will focus on track camps and athlete identification, and will reach over 200 athletes in the 2013/14 season, focusing on athletes between the ages of 13 and 16. Athletes will be identified through talent observation at Regional and National competitions, and via referral through our "Club Excellence Program", conducted through the youth clubs and certified coaches.
The OCA conducted three Try-Outs as well as a testing day and the finale at the 2014 Youth Track Championships in London, Ontario.
