BUILDING THE FUTURE OF SPORTS IN CENTRAL OHIO
The Center Ice Foundation of Central Ohio is a 501c3, dedicated to bringing a Regional Sports and Entertainment Complex to the southern corridor of Central Ohio.
In addition to a multi-sheet ice arena, our destination will also serve as an athletic complex for a multitude of sports including football, soccer, and lacrosse. Our state-of-the-art facility will offer a variety of amenities for families that include health and wellness, retail, restaurants and hospitality.
WHY SHOULD YOU SUPPORT US?
The Center Ice Foundation is a 501c3 CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION, registered with the Ohio Attorney General, and your donation is TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
Our project is a UNIQUE, REGIONAL destination, which will include a multi-use sports facility, entertainment & hospitality, and health & wellness components, and will bring nearly 300 sustainable jobs to our local economy.
Our sports & entertainment complex will provide COUNTLESS recreational opportunities for our community, without burdening the taxpayers. Our project is a fully privately funded development and will use NO TAXPAYER DOLLARS - EVER.
There is a HUGE demand for ice rinks in the Southern Corridor of Central Ohio.
Of the 8 ice rinks in Central Ohio, NONE ARE SOUTH OF I-70.
For the 2020-2021 season, there were over 100 youth hockey players WAITLISTED due to not having enough ice in Central Ohio to accommodate the demand.
Central Ohio boasts the LARGEST ADULT HOCKEY LEAGUE IN THE COUNTRY, with over 180 teams.
Our sports, entertainment, health & wellness complex will bring HUNDREDS OF FAMILIES to support our local economy EVERY DAY.
Pickerington is a SPORTS TOWN, with world-class high school varsity football, basketball, baseball, softball, track, swimming, tennis, and lacrosse, but NO OHSAA-SANCTIONED HOCKEY?? Because of the lack of availability and easy proximity to ice, our high school isn’t able to offer this sport. Bringing ICE to PICKERINGTON will COMPLETE our high school sports offering, making our community a more desirable place to live!
