The last week of January, Alberta Bobsleigh Association will be hosting the FIBT Para Bobsleigh Training Week. This training week will feature athletes with disabilities from Great Britain, USA and Canada. A second training week will take place in Igls, Austria in February, where many more European teams will join in.

At the Calgary event, we will have three Canadian coaches, teaching athletes the skills of piloting a bobsleigh down the track in a modified 2man bobsleigh.

It takes a lot of manpower to pull off this event and we are still recruiting volunteers. Please let us know if you would be willing to help out. Call us at 403-297-2721 or email to

Here is the schedule of events:

Monday January 27th to Friday January 31st
8:30am to 10:30am - track walks
10:45am to 2:45pm - sliding from different start levels

Come and be a part of this exciting sport.
