What is this event supporting?
The United States is the only country in the world that does not support athletes at the elite level with federal funding. You can directly contribute to the success of the athletes. It takes a Team behind the Team to win medals. With your support, the USA Luge Assocaition will invest to ensure that the U.S. can see the stars and stripes fly high in Sochi. The USLA’s athletes and programs are funded solely by the generosity of the public with a mix of private contributions, corporate sponsorship, membership fees, Olympic Committee grants and endowment earnings.
The U.S. Luge Association (USLA) is a world class sports organization that provides opportunities for athletes in the most exciting Olympic Ice sport, LUGE! Developed to prepare U.S. athletes for national and international competition, the USLA provides structure for competitive Luge racing. From grassroots programs to governance of sport, management of rules, competitions and athletic rankings, the USLA oversees athletic pipelines for development in the sport. With a vision to make the USA the best in the world in Olympic Luge, the USLA provides leadership and direction for young luge athletes who share an Olympic dream while maintaining a strong adherence to core values.
While the next Winter Olympics isn’t until February 2014, now is a crucial time to raise awareness and funds to ensure our athletes are fully prepared to represent the USA in Sochi, Russia!
