USOEC Offers Tours

MARQUETTE, Mich. The United States Olympic Education Center offers complimentary tours of training facilities Monday-Friday at 3:00 p.m., beginning in the USOEC main office in the Superior Dome. Tours last approximately one to two hours and can be tailored to participants’ interests. Additional times and groups of 15 or more can be accommodated by calling 906-227-2888.     

On the tour, visitors will have a behind-the-scenes look at the Superior Dome as they will have the opportunity to see training facilities that are tucked away and remain unseen from the Dome floor and surrounding walkway. The tour includes stops at the boxing, freestyle wrestling, Greco-Roman wrestling and Olympic-style weightlifting gymnasiums, a strength and conditioning facility, a sports medicine clinic, a sauna, locker rooms, and offices for coaches and staff. 

Visitors will also explore the Berry Events Center at the ice level, including where equipment is kept to maintain the ice.
