Recruitment Camps

BCS travels across Canada each year looking for serious athletes who demonstrate explosive strength, power, and speed, and who have a team mentality.

Currently there are no scheduled recruitment camps, but we will be in communities across the country this spring.

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 starts, along with various elastic and explosive strength requirements.

Check back here for schedules of camps in your area. 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.Contact us today!
