Included in the facility are three full-sized basketball & volleyball wood courts, a 1/10-mile indoor walking & running track, a fitness classroom with mirrored walls, a 6-lane pool with diving board, 4 racquetball courts and two cardio/weight rooms – both fully equipped with upright and recumbent bikes, ellipticals, treadmills, StairMasters, AMT’s, a Helix Trainer and rowers.

Our new free weight area houses six squat racks, multiple FTS Glide functional machines, new dumbbells ranging from 5lb to 100lb sets, and a brand new Queenax Bridge Trainer on which over 200 different types of exercises can be completed. Our second room is outfitted with Paramount weight machines that focus on different muscle groups and a larger open area for stretching and individual work. Our equipment offers a variety of customizable, workout routines for both individuals and families - athletes and non-athletes. These cardio/weight rooms allow for a diverse approach to your workout -no matter what your exercising goals may be!

These courts are the home of JBU Tennis and Siloam Springs High School Tennis.  Courts are normally in use by JBU or SSHS tennis from 3:00-6:00pm on weekdays during the school year.  Courts will also be closed to the public on game days for these programs.  For game schedules, please visit JBU Athletics or SSHS Athletics.


Eagle Ridge Disc Golf

Grab a friend or two and come play a round of disc golf on JBU's new Eagle Ridge Disc Golf Course!  This beautiful 9-hole course offers challenging shots through wooded areas, with longer-range open shots, between the tennis courts and around soccer's Alumni Field.  The course begins on the west side of the tennis courts, loops around the soccer field and ends up at hole 9 located on the northwest corner of the tennis courts.  Located along scenic Sager Creek, Eagle Ridge Disc Golf Course is a great course to enjoy with friends and family throughout the year!

The course is open to the community and we would love your feedback.  Discs are available for check out at the WLHC Front Desk for JBU faculty/staff/students and WLHC members only.  Discs must be returned the same day as checked out.
