Luge Sport Programs

Whistler Sliding Development Centre

Luge sport programs are offered for ages 8 and up, and include introductory one-time "Discover" sessions, full-season novice and advanced training in the winter/on-ice season, as well as year-round high performance training options. At this point, no on-ice luge programming is available for adults.

Within the BC Sliding Development Centre, a clear learning pathway and experienced staff lead children and youth through their progression levels. Meet our sliding coaches!

More information about participation in our programs is available in our athlete handbook. All programs follow a clear athlete pathway, and coaches follow a development pathway as laid out by the national federation.

For any questions, contact the sport team by phone at 604-964-0044 or by email.
