Picente: USA Luge Summer Search Returning to Utica August 21st, 22nd
Oneida County Executive Anthony J. Picente, Jr., today announced that for a 2nd consecutive year, USA Luge will conduct Slider Search Clinics in Utica August 21st and August 22nd.
“The annual summer slider search by USA Luge is the first step that can lead to a future in one of the world’s fastest sports,” Picente said. “Erin Hamlin, along with many of her USA Olympic teammates, took her first steps to competition on the wheel sleds that are used for the summer slider search. Last year 60 Oneida County youth participated. Of those 60 youth, 3 young female athletes were invited and recently completed their first summer training camp as part of the USA Junior Development Luge Team.”
