Hybl Center Home
The story behind the Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center is one of commitment to first responders, to community, to youth, and to athletes of all levels and active individuals with disabilities. It is a story with a vision to create a world-class destination for all.
This state-of-the-art facility is designed to promote a multi-disciplinary and highly collaborative approach driven by teamwork and a passion for translating research into real-world solutions. When constructed, it will promote the concept of "Exercise as Medicine" by using protocols developed with athletes and translating them to testing and exercise prescriptions for patients with diseases ranging from diabetes to cancer.
Bold. Innovative. Futuristic.
Centers of Distinction
The Center for Tactical and Occupational Performance
This center will provide a range of programs targeted at individuals with job requirements that are typically unpredictable, require a high-level of physical fitness, are prone to injury and do not change appreciably through the professional lifespan from hiring-to-retiring. Based on the intense, unchanging physical demands of these occupations, we consider individuals engaged in these professions to be elite tactical and occupational athletes. These professions include military, police, fire, rescue and other first responders. Just like the traditional professional athlete, essential job tasks within these groups require the use of physical force, speed, endurance and agility to perform those duties in a safe, effective and efficient manner.
The Center for Athletes and Active Individuals with Physical Disabilities
This center will endeavor to maximize personal performance despite the extraordinary physiological and medical challenges associated with physical disabilities; including elite wounded warriors and para-athletes and other athletes and individuals with physical challenges who endeavor to participate in sports competitions or maintain an active lifestyle.
The Center for Health & Performance in Extreme Environments
What better place to focus on health and performance at altitude with
the highest summit of the southern Front Range of the Rocky Mountains right outside our window? At this center, we help ready elite athletes, military and recreationalists for the world’s most unforgiving environments. Areas of expertise include altitude training and performance, high-altitude illnesses, and thermoregulation in environmental extremes

UCCS, an integral part of the City for Champions plan for Colorado Springs.
Starting in 2013, the City of Colorado Springs embarked upon a journey to fully establish a City of Champions, which is an initiative to highlight four unique and extraordinary venues that will strengthen and diversify the economic impact of regional and state visitor attractions. The William J. Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center is one of those four venues, along with the United States Olympic Museum, the Colorado Sports and Event Center and the USAFA Gateway Visitor Center.
