The U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Foundation serves as the primary source of philanthropic resources for the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC). This critical financial support allows the USOPC to invest in areas that promote excellence and innovation for Team USA.
Founded in 1894, the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee is focused on protecting, supporting and empowering America’s athletes, and is responsible for fielding U.S. teams for the Olympic, Paralympic, Youth Olympic, Pan American and Parapan American Games. Through the Quality Coaching initiative, the USOPC will create a virtual coaching education program grounded in SEL for use across Olympic and Paralympic sport and 61 partner organizations. The USOPC will work individually with National Governing Bodies to create supplemental sport-specific materials to further enhance the learning opportunity and promote the initiative to over 250,000 coaches nationwide, training 40,000 over a three-year period.
