Main Gym Overview

Jefferson High School Main Gym The Main Gym can be conveniently divided into north and south sides with a vinyl curtain. It features a hardwood floor, two electronic scoreboards, a PA system, and boys and girls locker rooms. It was designed to allow spectators to sit close to the action. Wooden bleachers pull out on the east, west and north sides of the varsity court, providing seating for approximately 1,250 people. The upper walking concourse provides standing room for another 50. The gym has been the site of Minnesota State High League regional gymnastics competitions and the state adapted floor hockey tournament. It is also the home of the Jefferson Jaguars.

Jefferson High School Activity Center The JAC is the perfect site for athletic tournaments. It features five basketball/volleyball courts separated by vinyl and mesh curtains. Each court has its own LED electronic scoreboard and bleacher/chair seating for approximately 60 people. All courts have spring-loaded hardwood maple floors. Adjacent to the courts is the large Team Room that can function as tournament headquarters, trainer's room, or a referee hospitality site. Concession sales can be conveniently located in the adjacent school lunchroom or operated out of the school's concession stand. In combination with the Main Gym, the facility has a total of seven basketball/volleyball courts.
