Huge Olympic training center it is where athletes travel from miles to train. You can observe them train and I paid to have my son attend archery classes there.

We were hoping for so much more. We took the self guided tour, unfortunately the phone prompts were not all that helpful. The path is nice, but everything is far away and in restricted areas. We saw no one training, heck we saw no one in the visitors building. The gift shop was closed and the information desk was MIA.... More

I did not know that the training center is open to public. My boyfriend and I happen to just driving around the area when we saw the sign and decided to stop by and see what's inside. There were no athletes training when we were there but we heard BMX bicyclists training on the track. The center has a BMX... More

This is a great family event. The walking tour is just over a mile or so. Our guide was actually an Olympic participant in 2012, and expects to be participating this year in Rio, assuming no injuries etc. There were a total of 6,,, six Olympic team members that came over and talked to our group. Each one of them... More

The Arco Olympic Training area was a closed gate operation in the beginning. Since then the kids can now practice archery and what not.

Few people know about the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA. Not even sure how we stumbled on it, but so glad we did. There are only a few USOC training centers in the country, so if your are in or near San Diego, it is a must see facility. It is inspiring to see the best of the... More

The Olympic Training Center is where U.S. Olympians train year around. It is open to the public and features a large array of Olympic venues for training. It features a walking tour throughout or carts for those who need them. While visiting wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to see all the training facilities available. No charge for the tour...

Having been to the center in Colorado Springs it was nice to visit this one also. A nice self-guided tour and the ability to watch some of the athletes train the day we were there. Bring a hat and sunscreen....you are in the sun the entire time. Other than in the gift shop of course.

We actually went to drop our daughter off there for Archery Camp. WOW. Perhaps we got the back stage visit. We toured the center which was amazing, the facility is top notch. We walked around, hit the gift shop. Beware, they only take VISA or CASH. When we were there, it was pretty quiet and empty. Saw first hand the... More
