Interested in becoming a Luge official? Learn more about what is required.
Luge officials are required to know the rules of the sport and make sure they are followed so that the competition is fair to all competitors. Officials work the starts, finish and control areas of a competition event. Officials are also needed to do administrative paperwork, be jury members, technical delegates, course inspectors, escorts, marshals, and even track workers. An official must be willing to work outside, in all types of weather, for long periods of time. A race day is typically five to seven hours for a provincial level race and longer for an international event.
