The ADK Luge Club, TryLuge Program, is a portal designed for you to be introduced to the exhilarating uber cool sport of luge and experience the thrill of participating in a winter Olympic sport in a safe controlled environment. This is mainly geared toward youth ages 8-14 in assisting USA Luge with scouting and recruitment. However, if you are older, by all means you are still most welcome to join and become a soul slider like quite a few of us.

There is only a modest track fee for TryLuge. You will be equipped with required gear and receive instruction. After your runs, if you find luge is a sport that fits your quest for great way to spend a weekend while participating in the fastest sport on ice for fun, making new friends and possibly uncover a potential winter Olympian, then you've come to the right place. We are very family oriented !
