Our Story





Everyone needs a place where they can cut loose from the everyday demands of life... A place to share their story, experience genuine community, and know that they are truly welcome. At The Warehouse, we are building a place just like that, a place of belonging. We primarily utilize recreation and sports to engage the youth of Bloomington in a positive way, but there is something here for everyone, at any age, almost everyday!
