On a three day weekend trip to Colorado Springs, we spent some time at the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center. It was eye opening to see their phenomenal center and all they do to train for their specific Olympic event. I wasn’t really sure what to expect when we first decided to visit, but I have to say I was quite impressed. The Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center is the flagship training center for the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Olympic Training Center programs. USA Swimming and USA Shooting have their national headquarters on complex. provide housing, dining, training facilities, recreational facilities and other services for more than 500 athletes and coaches at one time on the complex.

The Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center was definitely the highlight of our trip to Colorado Springs, and should definitely be on your to-do list when in the area. We were even lucky enough to spend a few minutes talking to some possible future Olympians, which was probably the actual highlight, lol I was shocked at how young they were. They were preparing for the Olympics which were more than 4 years away. Good luck to those young ladies.
