Development Luge Program / Youth A & B

The Development Program (Youth A & B) is open for girls and boys ages 13-14 that 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 five coached training sessions per week. 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).
