Attention college and community members! You are invited to experience the new Jets Air Station at Jackson College, opening on July 8!

After months of anticipation, the finishing touches have been made, and the Jets Air Station is ready to welcome guests!  The hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays & Sundays (hours may change based on usage). This brand-new inflatable air dome provides more space for college athletics, student and community workouts, and public events. Inside, the Air Station features a rubberized floor with four basketball courts, four volleyball courts, six pickleball courts, and two tennis courts. A marked walking track surrounds the perimeter of the athletic courts. The starting setup includes one tennis court, a volleyball court, a basketball court, and a pickleball court, which may change based on usage.

“This will provide a great space for our students for recreation throughout the year. It will provide another opportunity for intracurricular social and educational events,” said Executive Director of Athletics and Student Development, Courtney Ivan.

To meet visitors’ needs, there are restrooms, a greeters’ station, bag/shoe storage, a lounge/seating area and vending machines. Guests may check out tennis rackets and balls, volleyballs, pickleball paddles and balls and basketballs. All users must sign in on arrival, every time.

Usage of the Jet Air Station will be free over the summer; memberships will be offered for the fall semester, with information to come.
