Chula Vista, Calif. - Ground has been broken on the new 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art archery facility at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista. The new field house, made possible by the Easton Foundations and the U.S. Olympic Committee, will provide athletes space to fine-tune equipment while training in a venue specifically tailored for the sport of archery.
The new facility is expected to feature element-free training options at the Olympic distance of 70 meters. "We are so excited about the construction of this state-of-the-art training facility," USA Archery CEO Denise Parker commented when the agreement was signed to build the venue. "Having this type of site available for our national and development training sets Team USA up for future success."
"I am pleased to see construction starting," noted KiSik Lee, National Head Coach for USA Archery. "This new facility will allow our athletes the opportunity to go further and train harder in reaching for their Olympic dreams, and will be a focal point for the archery world. All of us are grateful to the Easton Foundations and the USOC for working to build this venue."
