Run, don’t walk to the open-call bobsled/skeleton recruitment event May 25

PARK CITY, Utah — USA Bobsled & Skeleton (USABS) will hold a recruitment day on May 25 in Ogden.

Utah athletes have a history of competing and winning medals in bobsled and skeleton at every winter Olympics since 2002, tallying eight Olympic medals.

“We are looking for the next generation of athletes to keep the winning tradition going,” said a statement from USABS.

Utah Olympians and current athletes and coaches will be present to meet athletes, sign autographs, and explain what it takes to be an Olympian. 

The event will be held at Bonneville High School, located at 251 E 4800 S, Washington Terrace. Registration will start at 10 a.m. and testing will start at 10:30 a.m.

Athletes, ages 18 and up, from all sports backgrounds are encouraged to register by filling out this form prior to May 25 in order to attend.

“Find out if you have what it takes to become our next champion,” said a statement from USABS.

Although this singular event is being held in Ogden, athletes who make the cut past this combine may have the opportunity to train and compete at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City.
