Olympic & Paralympic Shooting Center

USA Shooting is headquartered at the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Training Center (USOPTC) in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Located on the USOPTC campus, the Olympic Shooting Center was built in 1985 and is used for elite and resident athlete training, competitions, national championships, coaching seminars, camps, committee meetings and local clubs. Approximately 25 resident and day-use athletes train at the USOPTC during the year.

USA Shooting's Olympic and Paralympic Shooting Center is the largest indoor shooting facility in the Western Hemisphere and the third largest in the world. Three separate ranges provide 29 firing points from 50 meters and 73 firing points from 10 meters for training and competitions. The vast size of the range allows for USA Shooting to host several events in Colorado Springs, Colorado like National Championships, National Junior Olympic Championships, and Winter Airgun Championships. It also houses the USA Shooting administration offices, a gunsmithing room and locker rooms for resident and visiting athletes. 

In addition to the indoor ranges at the USOPTC, the outdoor ranges at the International Shooting Park are also used by U.S. Shooting Team members. Construction began in 1985 on 102 acres of land leased to the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee at the edge of the U.S. Army Fort Carson military base. Four superimposed international-style skeet and bunker trap fields, shade shelters and a clubhouse have been completed.
