JCCC Fieldhouse or Big Space

The most striking feature of this facility is the JCCC Fieldhouse, commonly referred to a “the big space.” The name is apropos for a 43,000-square-foot area, equivalent in size to three basketball courts, which can accommodate up to eight classes simultaneously. The floor has a 7-millimeter rubber mat topped with 2 millimeters of polyurethane. Its size is so immense that upkeep requires two riding machines - a sweeper and scrubber, each the size of a small street cleaner.

A 200-meter track with six lanes, three for walking and three for running, circles a central, multifunctional area. The multifunctional area can be configured for basketball, volleyball, badminton and tennis courts using retractable partitions. Each end of the multifunctional space can accommodate three sets of retractable nets that create practice cages for batting and pitching for softball and baseball or driving golf balls.

In addition to students, staff and faculty making use of the Fieldhouse, community groups and organizations have scheduled events and activities in the facility. 

The Fieldhouse once served as the host venue for the indoor heptathlon and pentathlon events of the NJCAA Region VI Track Championships.
