Give it
       a go

Taster sessions

Have you been watching the Olympic Winter Games and been thinking, 'I'd like to give that a go'? Well, now you can!

We offer taster sessions for both sports during the summer, giving you the chance to try your hand at bobsleigh or skeleton, or even both.

  • These two-and-a-half-hour sessions take place at our new and improved push track at the University of Bath, the only track of its kind in the country
  • You’ll receive world-class coaching from current GB athletes, who will show you the tricks of the trade, pass on tips and advice to improve your technique and answer all your questions on the sport
  • Speed is at the heart of both bobsleigh and skeleton so you’ll have plenty of time to test yourself against the clock once you’ve learnt the basics

  • And, if you fall in love with the sport during the summer, there's the potential to take your experience to the next level by joining us on ice next winter

Prices are £80 per person, with a maximum of 20 spaces for each session. 

A discounted rate of £150 is available for people wishing to try both sports on the same day.
