The Air Force Regional Training Center (AFRTC) is recognized by USA Wrestling as an Olympic Regional Training Center. The AFRTC’s effort is to focus elite athletes who aspire to become All-American, National, World, and Olympic champions in a single training complex. This focus provides a location for local athletes and the individuals and corporations who choose to support this noble and worthy initiative to pursue excellence.
The training complex is housed on the prestigious grounds of the United States Air Force Academy, in Colorado Springs, Colorado, neighboring the prestigious U.S. Olympic Training Center. Currently a core group of 60+ athletes within a 250 mile range of the United States Air Force Academy, who met the current USA Wrestling RTC criteria, participate in AFRTC events. The AFRTC athletes are from the United States Air Force Academy, a NCAA Division I institution in the Big 12 Wrestling Conference, the United States Air Force Preparatory School, the U.S. Olympic Training Center and local Colorado high schools.
Athletes who participate in the AFRTC benefit from the training offered in Freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling, leadership development, warrior ethos, in a climate and culture of inclusion and respect, while training and competing at the highest level.
