THE JACK STEPHENS CENTER

The 2005-06 season marked the debut of the Jack Stephens Center, the new $25-million home of Little Rock Athletics. Thanks to a generous $22.4 million gift from Jackson T. Stephens, the late Little Rock businessman and philanthropist, the Little Rock volleyball and men’s and women’s basketball teams made the move to the state-of-the-art 5,600 seat facility which is second to none.

Measuring 149,000 square feet, the Jack Stephens Center features a full-court practice gym named after Little Rock alum Derek Fisher, an academic support center complete with 23 computer terminals, a first-class weight room, an athletic training room, locker rooms for basketball and volleyball, and a NIKE team store. In addition, the arena houses the offices for the men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball coaches, as well as the athletic administration and support staff.

The arena features leather chair back seating, a dozen luxury suites, and more than 70 percent of its seats between the end lines. Each end of the court sports a 90-foot scoreboard with a video board and statistics panel.

The athletic locker rooms are equipped with a lounge area and a video room. The lounge area includes a TV and seating area, while the video room sports theatre seating, a 62 inch TV, and custom made dry erase boards. In addition, the main wall in the video room doubles as a dry erase board to aid the coaches in their game preparation.
