JUDO CANADA / JUDO ONTARIO
REGIONAL TRAINING CENTRE

Based in Scarborough and in partnership with Judo Canada, Judo Ontario operates one of Canada's Regional Training Centres. The RTC program provides a centralized world class training environment in Ontario for aspiring full-time U16 to U21 athletes who wish to transition onto the international competitive circuit and to the National Training Centre in Montreal.
This program is open for application to all judoka from all provinces across Canada.


The RTC program provides opportunity for the greater volume of training needed to succeed at the higher levels of competitive judo. Athletes will have access to international level coaching, technical/tactical skills, individualized strength & conditioning, goal setting and further support services through the Canadian Institute of Sport.
