Our Competitive Pool and/or Lap Pool can be rented on an hourly basis outside of our normal operating hours only. There is a 2 hour minimum for all pool rentals and all groups must adhere to our Group Pool Contract which outlines pool rules and supervision guidelines.
The gym can be rented on an hourly basis outside of our normal operating hours only. Groups have access to the gym and restrooms.
The Community Room is a great meeting space and can be rented during our normal operating hours or after hours. The room includes up to eight 6-ft folding tables and 40 chairs. If you are a non-profit, church, or community-serving group - please check for special rates. There is limited availability for this room as Y programs and events take precedent over rentals.
Bring your next special event to the Y! After-Prom, youth group events, and corporate outings have all found success at our Y. Groups have access to our gym, pools, Community Room, locker rooms, and common areas. We can also include the racquetball court, aerobic studios, and other spaces based on the need of your group. Renting out the entire facility creates a unique experience for your event and is only available outside of our normal operating hours.
We are in the process of updating our rental policies and pricing. Please contact Heather Hulen, at 515-777-7746 or Heather.Hulen@dmymca.org for up to date information.
