Development Luge Program

The Development Luge Program is open for youth ages 13-14 who want to progress in the sport of luge and are working towards moving up into the Canadian Luge Association’s NextGen group.

Through the winter season, the program includes up to six coached training sessions per week (read more about our coaches here). The full-year program also includes a summer training component. Newcomers to the program/first year athletes can choose to train in winter only (without commitment to summer training).
