NEW BERLIN – Four years ago, as his plans began to take shape on paper, Aaron Kahle saw his dreams of an all-encompassing indoor sports complex become plausible.

Today, they’re tangible, ready for a crowd of curious guests wondering what’s inside and for a group of young athletes looking forward to a training center so complete they might think they were already pros.

The OAW Indoor Sports Complex, one of the key additions to New Berlin’s growing prowess in personal fitness, has opened its doors, with a grand opening event Friday making sure everyone has a chance to consider what’s at hand.

Also known by its pre-sponsor name Ethic sports complex, the 153,000-square-foot facility along Racine Avenue and National Avenue features enclosed sports fields and four indoor basketball courts, as well as a fitness center and specialized performance training programs.
