Welcome to the Carlson MetroCenter YMCA


The Carlson MetroCenter YMCA exists to strengthen community. The Y isn't just the name on the building. We're a spirit, a movement, and a cause. Members join our athletic club because they believe in us - and the values we stand for. Our Y has proudly served the Rochester community since 1983.  Together with people like you, we nurture the potential of kids, help people understand and improve their health through weight and strength training, and provide opportunities to give back and support our neighbors. We hope that you decide to join us in our cause!

Did you know that Carlson MetroCenter is the only YMCA in town that offers:

  • Racquetball courts and leagues
  • Towel and laundry services
  • Locker rental ($17 a month for a full locker, $14 a month for a half locker)
  • A steam room
