The U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif., is the first U.S. Olympic Committee training center to be master-planned from the ground up and is dedicated to the development and performance of America’s future Olympic and Paralympic athletes. The year-round, warm-weather facility was a gift to the U.S. Olympic Committee from the San Diego National Sports Training Foundation, a group of dedicated business and community leaders and volunteers who raised the funds to build the Center.
The Chula Vista Olympic Training Center rests on a 155-acre complex adjacent to Lower Otay Reservoir in San Diego County. The Center has sport venues and support facilities for archery, beach volleyball, BMX, canoe/kayak, cycling, field hockey, rowing, rugby, soccer, softball, tennis, track & field, triathlon, and cross-training abilities for various winter sports. Athletes are selected to train at the CVOTC by their respective sport federation or National Governing Body. The CVOTC offers support to athletes including housing, dining, training facilities, local transportation, recreational facilities, athlete services and professional development programs.
The Chula Vista Olympic Training Center, which officially opened in June 1995, has benefited thousands of Olympic hopefuls, numerous community groups, and countless visitors from around the globe.
