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.
As part of our recruitment efforts, we offer perspective athletes the opportunity to push a real sled on real ice! Our “Learn To Push” camps are conducted throughout the summer season, June - September and offer athletes the chance to experience push training just as our Olympians do.
ASA has the facility booked twice a week throughout the summer for regular push training. You must be an ASA member to train with us - an Associate membership can be purchased for Ice House use only. Please see the membership section for details.
International and local push competitions are held in the Ice House each year, as well as Talent ID and recruiting camps during the summer.
