Iowa Wolves, YMcA of Greater Des Moines Partner for John R. Grubb Teen Center Project
DES MOINES, Iowa - The Iowa Wolves, the NBA G League franchise of the Minnesota Timberwolves, in partnership with YMCA of Greater Des Moines announced the grand re-opening of the John R. Grubb YMCA Teen Center. Media are invited to attend the re-opening ceremony Thursday, June 23 at the Grubb YMCA (1611 11th St., Des Moines, 50314) at 1 p.m.
The teen center is a safe and supportive space where kids can learn, play, compete and develop positive relationships. The remodeling and outfitting of the teen center is an extension of the Iowa Wolves Metro League partnership with the YMCA of Greater Des Moines.
This past year, the Iowa Wolves joined forces with the YMCA of Greater Des Moines and created a new teen basketball league for the local metro area. In its first season, the Iowa Wolves Metro League allowed more than 200 area high schoolers, who were not part of their high school basketball programs, the opportunity to continue playing basketball weekly from January to March with an eight-week regular season and playoffs on week nine.
