This Year's Project: Organization & Facility Improvements

About Our Organization

The mission of the Young Men’s Christian Association of McCook, Nebraska is to organize human, financial and material resources to encourage the spiritual, physical, mental, and leadership growth of any individual within a Christian atmosphere.

At the YMCA of McCook, our cause is strengthening the foundations of our community.  Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to ensure everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.

We offer a wide range of programs and activities for the whole family. Of course, there are fitness classes and exercise equipment to keep our members healthy and physically fit. But more importantly, the YMCA provides a fun, social atmosphere, where you will be missed if you skip a swim class or a weight-lifting session.

The YMCA is the major provider of youth and adult recreational activities, as well as the leader in providing health enhancement programs and opportunities for the citizens of Southwest Nebraska and Northwest Kansas. The YMCA also provides a safe facility where area youth can hang out while being supervised or participate in organized activities.

The YMCA offers a variety of youth sports such as basketball and soccer, adult sports such as pickleball and volleyball, and wellness programs for all ages including indoor cycling and Zumba. The YMCA continues to be the leaders in the aquatic field offering progressive swim and lifeguard lessons, as well as providing time for high school swim team and competitive youth swim teams.

The values and skills learned early in life are vital building blocks for a successful adulthood, and we believe all kids deserve a strong start and a safe place to grow. Parents trust the Y’s Youth Development programs to support and nurture their children from infancy through the teen years and help them become strong, capable and engaged young people.

Current Project: Organization & Facility Improvements


In our ongoing quest to serve our members and the community, the YMCA of McCook is committed to provide quality experiences. In doing so, our organization has identified necessary improvements to be made in our Aquatics, Youth Development, Fitness, and Sports Departments. These include equipment upgrades as well as facility updates and renovations. In order to remain relevant in our industry and to provide exceptional service to our members and guests, it is critical that we work to improve our amenities in an effort to continually promote healthy and active lifestyles.

An evaluation of our current internal components has shown we have several deficiencies in mechanical processes, technology, overdue maintenance, and out of date equipment. Our charge is to address these shortcomings by strategically updating the aforementioned elements in a professional manner that will enhance member experience and attract a new audience. We thank you in advance for your contributions and commitment to help us make the YMCA a pillar of our fine community for generations to come.
