The small town of Lake Placid has twice hosted the Winter Olympic Games in 1932 & 1980. Lake Placid is also the home to the Eastern USOC Training Center. There is a receptive atmosphere for athletes and sport in the Olympic Region. L.P.S.C. has developed soccer, the world’s most popular sport, in the Adirondack Region and sometimes we refer to the center as a “soccer oasis” in the middle of a soccer desert! Each year between 4,000 – 5,000 soccer visitors travel from all over North America to experience football magic in the heart of the great.
Even though Lake Placid is a small town, it’s bursting with life in summer. Thousands of visitors come to enjoy what the town and its surrounding area have to offer. From countless lakes and waterfalls to mountain peaks and acres of forests, the park provides a perfect getaway from everyday hustle.
