Is your child destined to represent the United States and go for gold? Does your child want to try something new for the morning of afternoon this weekend? USA Luge coaches and athletes are coming to Arrow Head Ranch on Camano Island on May 18-19 with the White Castle Slider Search to help you do both!
Register now for this free event, as space is limited to the first 100 participants. Kids will also have a chance to meet and get tips from USA Luge Olympian Aidan Kelly and his staff of Olympic/National Team athletes.
The White Castle USA Luge Slider Search is the official nationwide athlete recruitment tour of USA Luge, seeking young athletes, ages 9-13.
Slider Search is a fun event for the whole family where children will be introduced to the Olympic sport of luge by Team USA coaches and athletes using wheeled sleds on city streets. Coaches are on the lookout for kids to become members of the USA Luge Development Team, the first step in becoming an Olympian.
Each participant should sign up a free clinic here:
All events are free and everyone gets a White Castle USA Luge Slider Search T-Shirt for attending.
Currently, most of the U.S. Junior National Team was recruited through the Slider Search, so it’s no wonder the USA Luge coaching staff feel tomorrow's National and Olympic Teams will come from this program. Erin Hamlin, 2014 Olympic bronze medalist, and 2009 World Champion was identified in a 1999 Slider Search. Brian Martin, a 1998 Olympic bronze, and 2002 Olympic silver medalist was discovered at a Slider Search in 1987. Seven members of USA Luge's 2018 Olympic team and six athletes on the 2014 U.S. Olympic Luge Team were graduates of the Slider Search.
