CINCINNATI -- The U.S. National Luge Team will be in Cincinnati on Saturday, Oct. 5 for the Pilot Chemical Luge Slider Search.
The U.S. National team is hosting the event for young athletes, both boys and girls ages 9 to 13 years old, who want to experience the thrill of a luge competition.
The event will take place between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tower Avenue in St. Bernard. Participants can register for one of the free clinics online at: usaluge.org
The young athletes will have the chance to make several runs down a paved street on wheeled sleds and will be "trained" under the guidance of USA Luge National athletes and coaches.
Those who show the most promise at the clinics will be invited to train in Lake Placid, N.Y. and will be considered for selection to the U.S. Junior Development Luge Team.
“Pilot Chemical is thrilled to bring our partnership with the U.S. National Luge Team home to Cincinnati,” said Pam Butcher, President and Chief Operating Officer of Pilot Chemical Company. “The program allows local youth to be exposed to the sport, as well as, be given the opportunity to try out to become an Olympic athlete.”
