The Atlantic City building once used for military drills will now be a recreational facility for the city’s youth.

State officials will officially dedicate the New Jersey National Guard Armory on Tuesday as a center for youth indoor sports.

A $2.9 million conversion of the 83-year-old main hall now allows for indoor track, soccer and volleyball.

Acting Attorney General John Hoffman and local officials will be at the opening Tuesday, along with Casino Reinvestment Development Authority Executive Director John Palmieri and Brigadier Gen. James Grant, of the Department of Military & Veterans Affairs.

The renovations are part of the attorney general’s commitment to investing in crime prevention, community redevelopment and public safety, according to a news release announcing the event.

The opening is at 1 p.m. at the armory, 1008 Absecon Blvd. Tours will be conducted.
