Discover Skeleton (ages 13-18)
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). From there athletes can be selected to join a UOP Sliding program.
