Educational Group Tours: Offered on varying days & times
Tours are available for groups, teams and students in second grade and above. The walking tour is one mile in each direction on the Olympic Path.

Reservations are required at least two weeks in advance and are subject to availability. Call 619-656-1500 for more information or to make a reservation.
Team USA Shop
The Visitor Center contains our Team USA Shop, where more than 100 different Team USA-branded items will be available for purchase and proceeds from all sales will directly support U.S. athletes. The funding is especially important because U.S. Olympic hopefuls receive no government funding, unlike athletes in other countries. Both the Team USA Shop in Chula Vista and the Team USA Shop at the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center are proud to accept only Visa for the purchase of all official Team USA merchandise.
