We will be having our first Learn to Push sessions of the summer season on July 4th and July 8th. After learning the proper technique, you can train with all of our athletes in our regular sessions throughout the summer. Check out our website calendar for times. Here is what you need to know:
- come earlier to warm up so you are ready to go by start time
- wear sweatpants/tights (no shorts) as it is cool in the Ice House
- we will provide helmets and ice spikes (shoes to run on ice)
- $10 per session or $150 for the whole summer!

All of our men's teams placed really well in a large and competitive field. Nick Poloniato and Jesse Lumsden placed 7th and Chris Spring with Lascelles Brown in 10th. Three sleds in the top ten at the Olympics is a major win.

ABA sliding cancelled due to cold

So, yes, we are a winter sport, but at some point sliding becomes dangerous. The extremely low temperatures this week not only make it hazardous for athletes and coaches to be outside for an extended period of time, but it also can freeze up the steering components to your bobsleigh. Stay warm for the next few days and we hope to be back on the track next week. I am working on new dates for our Alberta Cup race that was scheduled for this weekend. Stay tuned....
