Program description: UOP Skeleton and Bobsled is the club development program for bobsled and skeleton. We’re a feeder program for the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation. As part of the tryout, participants will first do a track walk with their coach to get an idea of how to steer a sled on ice. Next, they will take two runs on a skeleton sled from the Tourist start (entrance of curve 11).

The program runs for 3 consecutive Fridays with registered participants sliding on all three of the dates. After the program concludes athletes are then welcome to continue training with the UOP Youth Sliding Program (meets on Wednesdays and Saturdays).

UOP Waiver MANDATORY- UOP Sliding- https://waiver.smartwaiver.com/e/MsWviN6XaKjbR9cwy3nWRM/

Equipment: The Utah Olympic Park will provide skeleton sleds, helmets and elbow pads. YOU will need to bring clothes to slide in: Lower body- spandex tights, sweats or track pants preferably with tapered legs. Upper body-outer layer sweatshirt that is somewhat abrasion resistant, without hood and not too baggy-basically clothes that can get damaged. NO EXPOSED SKIN. Also, please bring a beanie, gloves, and warm jacket and snow pants for track walk.

Transportation: Transportation to the Utah Olympic Park (UOP) and athlete pick up from the UOP after sliding will need to be done by parents.  All athletes (students) need to be at the UOP by 2:00pm. They will slide from 2:30-3:30pm and be available for pick up at 3:30pm. Parents are gladly invited to stay and watch.

Directions: All participants will meet at the Bobsled/Skeleton finish dock. Once you drive to the UOP, pass the Museum on your left and follow the road towards the bobsled track.  When you come to a gate (5843*) proceed around the road and the bobsled track will be on your left side. Keep following the road until you come to a parking lot on your left. Please do not park in the parking lot but on the downhill side of the road. Coaches will meet you on the finish dock.
