Lancaster County is officially the home of U.S. Women’s Field Hockey.

USA Field Hockey and Spooky Nook Sports announced Tuesday that they’ve formed a partnership that will make Nook Sports, the sprawling indoor sports complex located on Spooky Nook Road in East Hempfield Township, the home of the U.S. Women’s National Team through 2022.

The complex will also host USA Field Hockey sanctioned events starting in 2014.

Nook Sports is scheduled to open its doors on March 1.  A $25 million renovation project transformed the former Armstrong World Industries distribution center into the world’s largest indoor sports complex.

On a recent weekday, a couple of hard-hatted workers patched holes in the concrete floor of a former Armstrong World Industries distribution center in East Hempfield Township.

While a handful of other workers stretched communication lines across a bare metal mezzanine, a sweeper droned methodically across the shiny floor of the massive structure.

It’s hard to picture now, but by March, this building should be bustling with adults and kids headed for soccer, tennis and lacrosse tournaments; basketball and football games; physical therapy appointments; and exercise workouts.

March 1 is the target date for the opening of Spooky Nook Sports Complex, a $25 million project to transform the idled distribution center into what will be the biggest indoor sports complex in the United States.
