New Archery digs at Chula Vista training center

From a USOC press release:

CHULA VISTA, Calif. – The United States Olympic Committee and the Easton Foundations today signed an agreement to build a new 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art archery field house at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista.

The resident program at the OTC has already produced the world’s top-ranked men’s archery team and individual male archer (Brady Ellison) heading into the 2012 Olympic Games. The new venue will provide athletes a space to fine-tune their equipment and give them access to a premier training facility tailored specifically to the needs of their sport. The agreement will also bring additional on-site housing to the training center.

The indoor facility will provide athletes with element-free training at the official Olympic distance of 70 meters. Construction is slated to begin this fall.

“We are so excited about the construction of this state-of-the-art archery training facility. Having this type of site available for our national and development training sets Team USA up for future success,” said USA Archery CEO Denise Parker. “We feel very fortunate to have such strong archery supporters within both the United States Olympic Committee and Easton Foundations. I know I speak for all the athletes and members of USA Archery when I thank the two organizations for their tireless work to bring this facility to fruition.”
