Following is a list of the different programs, experiences and opportunities available within the Canadian skeleton community.

Talent ID Camps

Each summer we hold Talent ID camps to help us find and recruit great athletes. If you have a background in sprinting, rugby, football or are simply athletic, come out to a Talent ID camp and see if skeleton might be in your future.

Ice House

Located at Canada Olympic Park, the Ice House is the only indoor facility of its kind in North America, allowing sliding athletes of all levels to perfect the all important push, even during the summer when the Olympic track is closed.

COP opened this one-of-a-kind facility in February 2001. This has allowed Canada and athletes around the world to develop their push skills in bobsleigh, luge and of course, Skeleton during the summer months.

Provincial Team Programs

The Provincial Program comprises athletes who are part of the Provincial Team and Provincial Development Teams commencing from the team announcement of the current season until the team announcement of the following season.

Skeleton Schools

Anyone who wants to get involved in sliding regularly, whether recreationally or competitively, must complete a skeleton school.

There is a limit to 20 spots for each Skeleton School. Athletes who have completed and ranked well in a Talent Id Camp and those who fit the Long Term Athlete Development model will be given first opportunity for school spots. The scheduled schools for each season will be listed here and on our calendar page.
