A network of venues, equipped for any event.

YMCA Wood Buffalo (Indoor)

Wood Buffalo’s YMCA contains a gymnasium, a squash court, and an indoor pool, all of which can be used to host multiple sports, making it one of the more versatile and well-equipped facilities in the region. Between the facilities, the venue can host badminton, basketball, goalball, handball, netball, squash, volleyball, and taekwondo. With the purchase of a temporary sport surface. In excellent condition with a range of equipment available, these facilities are more than capable of hosting finals and medal round events.

 

The Wood Buffalo YMCA also includes multiple classrooms, an atrium, an auditorium capable of holding 150 occupants, a 6 lane running track, a playground, a climbing wall, a studio, and a multipurpose room, which means there’s plenty to do for non-athletes who visit. This wheelchair-accessible facility is immediately next to Westwood Field and Ron Morgan Park, making it a great choice for multi-sport events that require access to multiple facilities in close proximity.
