Introducing the Great Lakes Sports Hub

The Great Lakes Sports Hub – coming to Crown Point, Indiana in the spring of 2022!

The new Great Lakes Sports Hub will take over the old space that was once occupied by the Crown Point Family Fun Center. The first order of business is completely resurfacing the parking lot and excavating and leveling the golf area to prepare for the future full size bullpens and outdoor field.

The arcade area will transform into a multi sport performance training facility and athletic recovery center with a full softball and baseball pro shop! The existing outdoor batting cages will be refurbished and the existing dome will be entirely replaced with a NEW DOME with lights, heat and air conditioning for year round use! Our DOME will include technology cages, Hittrax and much more!

There will be a full conference room and classrooms dedicated to our mental and academic programming.

There are some more special bonus plans for phase two, stay tuned!

The Great Lakes Sports Hub will be home to the 5 Star Great Lakes Chiefs baseball organization and the Batbusters-Indiana softball organization!
