Attention all National Level Luge Officials:

If you are a National Level Official and would like to get your International Level certification please contact for information and to register. 


To all officials:

The 2016 online update for all Canadian Luge officials is available at this link

All officials must complete the update prior to any national or international luge races and it is highly recommended that you complete it prior to any provincial competitions so that you familiarize yourself with any rule changes that have been implemented since last season. 

The new rules are available at this link

Thank you for taking the time to keep your accreditation current and volunteering at luge events.  Without our officials there wouldn’t be competitions for the athletes. You are appreciated!
