• O’KEEFE GYM

    ONE OF THE PREMIER VOLLEYBALL FACILITIES IN THE SOUTHEAST

    YELLOW JACKETS HAVE USED STRONG HOME COURT ADVANTAGE TO POST NEARLY AN .800 WINNING PERCENTAGE AT O’KEEFE SINCE 1995

      • O’Keefe Gym has been home to the Yellow Jackets since 1995 and has undergone some recent improvements making it one of the premier volleyball facilities in the Southeast.
      • The Smith Locker Room, recognizing the generosity of William Thomas Smith, Jr., was dedicated in 2007.
      • Special thanks to the generosity of Bob Hudson for his contribution to the Georgia Tech player’s lounge. The lounge now includes a coach’s lounge, training room and student-athlete study area. The player’s lounge includes leather couches, big screen televisions, work stations and a pool table. It gives the Jackets a place to meet before and after each match as well as entertain special pre- and post-match functions.
      • The most recent renovations, while not visible to the public, will enhance the student-athlete experience. Over the last couple of months, renovations were made and include a team video room, training room and visiting team locker rooms.

      • In the summer of 2010, the floor was re-done and banners were hung throughout the gym and entrance lobby highlighting the program’s success

      • POINT TECH!! Symbolizes the unmatched atmosphere and unparalleled excitement that engulfs O’Keefe Gym during each Georgia Tech volleyball match. The rowdy crowds have consistently ranked among the highest average attendances in the ACC and nation. They follow each match intently and rise to their feet and yell “POINT TECH” each time the Yellow Jackets score. From the introductions to the pep band to post-match autograph sessions, Georgia Tech is known throughout the South as having some of the most loyal volleyball fans
    • After an 8-7 record at O’Keefe last season, the Yellow Jackets have won nearly 80 percent of home matches since 1995. In her first match as a head coach, Tonya Johnson led the Jackets to a thrilling five-set victory over rival Georgia in front of a raucous sell-out crowd on August 28, 2009.
