About the Ash Youth Center
The Glen Ash Youth Center resulted from the generosity of former residents Glen and Virginia Ash and is dedicated to the youth of Independence. The center is publicly supported with operating expenses divided among the City of Independence, Unified School District 446 and the Independence-USD 446 Recreation Commission.
Ash Center Memberships
A membership is required to use the Ash Center. Funds generated through memberships are used to offset operating expenses. Memberships are good for a full year upon purchase. Your membership entitles you to the use of the building during normal operational hours. This includes the use of the youth center area, gymnasium, and Ash pool for adult swim only. Members holding a Family Membership will also receive a 25% discount on sports registration fees.* A membership is not required to participate in an enrolled IRC activity held in the building. Children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult while using the center.
*This is not applicable to programs that require paid instructors (swim lessons, tennis, clinics).
