Luge Canada

The Canadian Luge Association announces Recruitment Camp dates for Summer 2009!

The Canadian Luge Association is targeting its next generation of luge athletes with Summer Recruitment Camps in Calgary, and Whistler.

Athletes will receive an introduction to the sport of luge, and its equipment, prior to participating in a series of dry-land physical testing sessions to showcase agility, flexibility and all-around athletic ability. The day will culminate with a wheel-sliding session to build a familiarity on the luge sled.

Camp coaches will be looking for athletes age 10-14, with strong overall fitness, those who demonstrate a keen interest in sport and a willingness to learn.
