The U.S. Olympic Luge Team will return to Westmont on June 11 and 12 to conduct their Midwest Slider Search in an effort to meet and recruit Olympic hopefuls. The Village of Westmont has welcomed the U.S. Luge Team to the community numerous times over the past decade. This will be the 8th time the Slider Search has been held in Westmont.
The USA Luge Slider Search is a program that introduces the sport of luge to young athletes between the ages of 9 and 13. The clinics utilize actual luge sleds equipped with wheels for summer use. Participants are taught the basics of how to ride and steer a luge sled by U.S. National Luge Team athletes and coaches.
