Jephson Community Athletic Complex
The complex is a joint venture between Keuka College, the Town of Jerusalem, Village of Penn Yan, Penn Yan Central School, Yates County, and New York State. The $1.25 million, 34-acre-facility features baseball and softball fields, four soccer/lacrosse fields, an exercise trail loop, playground, and pavilion.
DIRECTIONS TO THE COMPLEX:
When at the main intersection (Central Ave. & Assembly Ave.) of the College, turn onto Assembly Ave. Drive 0.5 miles, past the Keuka Park Post Office, and it will be on your left before the Skyline Trading Post.
Keuka College offers a diverse intramural sports program for students, faculty and staff. The intramural program features team sports such as basketball, indoor soccer, floor hockey, indoor and outdoor volleyball, softball, and flag football. Tennis, table tennis and billiards tournaments are also part of Keuka’s intramural offerings. All sports feature co-ed leagues, and there are men’s and women’s leagues when demand dictates.
Located on the picturesque shores of Keuka Lake, right in the hear of New York state’s Finger Lakes region, Keuka College offers recreational opportunities for everyone. Keuka has its own private beach, where students can unwind after a day of classes by working on their tans and taking a dip in the lake.
If you’re a bit more adventuresome, the College also boasts a fleet of vessels—sailboats, kayaks, canoes—that you can take out on the lake. And don’t worry if you aren’t a world-class sailor. We’ll teach you how to navigate the waters of Keuka Lake. And bring your fishing pole. Keuka Lake is recognized as one of the state’s premier hot spots for anglers.
If you’re not into water sports, Keuka also offers plenty of well-grounded activities. Many students enjoy playing touch football or tossing around frisbees on Keuka’s expansive lawns. There are plenty of state parks nearby and trails for biking and hiking. And, if you’re trying to become the next Tiger Woods or simply enjoy a leisurely round of golf, the well-manicured public Lakeside Country Club in nearby Penn Yan offers 18 challenging holes that overlook Keuka Lake. The course is home to Keuka’s golf team.
Keuka College’s student athletes are supported by a full-time certified athletic trainer and 12 student assistants. Jeff Bray, who serves as head athletic trainer and assistant athletic director, was previous the head athletic trainer for the Illinois State University football team. He also worked with the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles and the Boise State University athletics department.
A member of the National Athletic Trainers Association, and International Council on Motorsports Science, Bray is a graduate of Kansas State University and Boise State University.
