BackgroundThe community of Flagstaff, Arizona (at an elevation of 7000 ft / 2100m) began hosting elite athletes who were preparing for the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City and who were seeking an altitude environment in which to prepare for high profile national and international competitions. As such activity and interest in altitude training continued to grow over the next few decades, the Center for High Altitude Training at Northern Arizona University (NAU) opened in 1995 on the NAU campus in order for the community to better serve this athlete population. From 1995 to 2008, the Center for High Altitude Training established itself as one of the preeminent organizations to coordinate altitude-based training camps, garnering a worldwide reputation for excellence on both the service and facility front. In 2009, the Center closed (largely due to the university's budget reduction) and HYPO2, made up of experienced sport management staff who'd worked for the Center, was founded to pick up where NAU had left off. Since 2009, HYPO2 has continued to expand on the offerings of the NAU-based program, refining the production and management of altitude training camps in Flagstaff, serving more and more elite athletes from more and more countries, and keeping Flagstaff front and center as the best possible place on the planet for altitude training.
"British Swimming has made a large investment into the benefits of altitude training this past four years, and has found the perfect partner in HYPO2 in the delivery of our camp programme. Knowing that we can travel to a first-class training environment, where our team can rely on an outstanding service and attention to detail ensures we can always maximize the physiological benefits each time we travel to northern Arizona. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship stretching into the next Olympic cycles."
Association of Sports Performance CentresAfter the success of the 1st Forum on Elite Sport in 1999 in Sydney and the 2nd Forum in Barcelona on 2001, it was clear to elite sport industry insiders that there needed to be a common place for the people and the organizations that work in the elite sports field to exchange experiences and information. These gatherings served as the basis for the creation of an International Association of High Performance Sports Training Centres to discuss ways to better prepare our athletes through exchange opportunities and a sharing of ideas and knowledge under a fair play philosophy.
