Train with Olympians at the OPTC!

Categories: Blog, Other

We are proud to partner with USA Shooting, and offer air gun athletes the unique opportunity to train with Olympians and top-tier coaches at the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Center (USOPTC).  Held in Colorado Springs, Colorado, November 10-12, every athlete and coach registration is a donation to the MidwayUSA Foundation endowment of the registrant’s choice. These endowments are crucial for the pipeline of youth athletes looking to achieve Olympic and Paralympic dreams.  The camp is open to all ages and skill levels for both air rifle and pistol athletes. The weekend includes a tour of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Center along with a portion of the meals for the duration of the camp.

Athlete registration $300
