Educational Group Tours: Offered on varying days & times

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.
