Nagano / Lake Placid (RWH) The national federations of Japan and the USA organize combine tests to find new talents for the sports of bobsleigh and skeleton.
The Japan Bobsleigh, Luge and Skeleton Federation (JBLSF) organizes test events in four different regions of the country on August 22 and 23 as well as August 20 and 30. Please check the JBLSF news release for detailed info to requirements and registration.
The federation USA Bobsled & Skeleton (USABS) offers the possibility for interested female and male athletes to join virtual combines. Submissions for the 2020-2021 season will be accepted through September 30, 2020.
The USABS combine asks participants to upload four videos after registering. The first is an interview so the USABS coaching staff can get to know more about the recruit. The next two videos are to demonstrate the 40-yard sprint and broad jump so the coaching staff can evaluate speed, power and strength. The final video is an athlete highlight, giving recruits the chance to showcase their other athletic accomplishments.
Athletes will be evaluated by the USABS coaching staff, and top candidates will be extended an invitation to attend a training camp in Lake Placid once facilities open. ©RWH2020
