The City of Hilliard broke ground yesterday on a new 114,000 square foot domed sports center known officially as Bo Jackson’s Elite Sports. The center is the first of its kind in Ohio, and will feature youth training programs focued on football, soccer, baseball and softball.

“The development of Bo Jackson’s Elite Sports is a real game changer for our city,” said Hilliard Mayor Don Schonhardt. “Not only does it contribute superior recreational opportunities for our residents, but it also creates real possibilities for Hilliard to attract major, regional sporting events that will contribute significant revenue for our local businesses.”

The center is the second Bo Jackson’s Elite Sports, with the original located in Lockport, Illinois, just outside of Chicago.

The Hilliard location is scheduled to open the summer of 2014.
