USA Bobsled & Skeleton is hosting a free, in-person combine next month for athletes interested in getting started in either of the Olympic Sliding sports. The event is open to all athletes over the age of 18 and will take place on June 11, 2023 in the U.S. Performance Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
USA Bobsled & Skeleton has relied on developing athletes from other sports for decades and this free combine will be no different.
Athletes from any sport can register for the event and see if they have the strength, speed, and competitive drive the Team USA coaches are looking for. In order to attend, athletes are asked to fill out a registration form on GMTM.com. The combine will only be open to 75 athletes, and those who register first will have priority. The deadline to fill out the registration form is June 2, 2023.
Athletes are invited to register regardless of their experience level or knowledge of bobsled or skeleton.
