Wasatch Luge Club
The Wasatch Luge Club (WLC) supports United States Luge Association (USLA) programs locally and is making a positive impact on the sport of luge. The WLC mission is to promote the sport of luge as a means of recreation for all ages, to act as a feeder to the National Team System, and to create a base of volunteers and officials to aid in the running of events.
Twenty (20) Points must be earned per sliding season, per slider to maintain eligibility. A “Point Sheet” will be issued allowing easy tracking of points throughout the season. It is your responsibility to maintain this “Point Sheet”. Participants are directed not to lose or misplace your Point Sheet. If necessary, a replacement sheet will be issued. Points can easily be earned, and are accrued per family. For example, an athlete earns Two (2) points for attending the WLC trash cleanup day in Park City. Plus, if two additional family members participate, a total of Six (6) points are earned toward that athlete’s funding eligibility.
When participants reach the required number of points, participants shall turn in their sheet into the Volunteer Coordinator. Participants are then eligible to receive money toward Athlete expenses such as team travel, training expenses, equipment, etc. *Athlete expenses must be tracked, recorded and turned in with the Points Sheet to the Volunteer Coordinator by March 31, 2012 to be eligible for supplemental funding. Points will not carry over from year to year and failure to reach the required number of points during the period will result in a loss of funding eligibility. Points must be earned by the athlete and/or their immediate family members and cannot be shared or transferred to another athlete.
Any activities not on the Board approved list must be approved by the Board and a point value assigned. Failure to gain approval prior to conducting an activity may result in lost efforts towards earning points.
If the Athlete meets all Funding Eligibility requirements, the WLC will reimburse the athlete up to an amount not exceeding their actual expenses.
Any questions should be directed to the Volunteer Coordinator, an appointed Executive Board member. Any conflicts of interest between participants, participant’s parents or any other party under this program shall be reviewed and resolved at the sole discretion of the Board of Directors of the WLC.
