Do you have what it takes to make the team?
USA BOBSLED/SKELETON is recruiting for the upcoming Olympic Games and looking for graduating seniors or recent graduates who would like to extend their athletic careers. We are looking for athletes who come from speed and power sports, such as football, track and field, rugby, volleyball or softball, who would be capable of pushing a bobsled or a skeleton sled downhill on ice at a high rate of speed. Successful athletes in the sport also have grit and are good team players. It doesn’t hurt if you’re a bit of an adrenaline junkie. We don’t expect athletes to have any experience with bobsled or skeleton. We teach that. We are looking for raw athletic talent.
Register for the Upcoming Combine!

- St. Moritz, Switzerland is the oldest bobsled & skeleton track in the world and is the only natural track in the world.
- Whistler, Canada is home to the fastest track in the world. Athletes can reach speeds up to 90 mph for skeleton and 93 mph for bobsled!
