Welcome to the Indianola YMCA

The Indianola Y is committed to strengthening our community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Our facility opened August 26, 2013 and we are proud to now call Indianola home. But the Y is not about buildings, we are about building people and providing opportunities for people to make a positive change in their lives. Come see how we are making our people and community stronger.




Our 1st Y Swim Meet of the season!

Saturday, November 15: Y Swim Meet

We will host our first Y swim meet of the season this Saturday, the Indianola Distance Challenge. Being our first Y swim meet of this season, please remember that the Y meets operate differently than the high school and college meets. In addition to the pool closing, the community room and gymnasium will also be closed. Expect lots of extra traffic in and around the facility as parents come to cheer on their swimmers. The competitive pool will close at 8:30am for meet preparations and warm-ups. The meet starts at 10am. Come cheer on the Tide!

New Wellmark Y Opens January 1st For All

The current Riverfront Y will close its doors for the final time on December 19 and the new Wellmark Y will open its doors for business on January 1. Please visit the Wellmark Y website for more information on that branch. Did you know that by joining any branch of the YMCA of Greater Des Moines, you will have access to the new Wellmark Y? That means you can use the Indianola Y when you are close to home and Wellmark Y when you are downtown working! It is a great benefit for commuting workers that we want you to be aware of and take advantage of.
