Luge Officials

Race 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. Officials are also needed to do the administrative paperwork, be jury members, technical delegates, course inspectors, escorts, marshals and even track workers. A race official must be willing to work outside in all types of weather for long periods of time. A race day is typically 5 to 7 hours for a Provincial Level race and longer for an international event.
