The demand for high-quality youth soccer, ice hockey, and other sports facilities are greater than ever in central Iowa. To meet this demand, local leaders and organizations worked diligently to create MidAmerican Energy Company RecPlex. The facility will be owned and operated by the City of West Des Moines, IA.

Enhancing Our Quality of Life

Behind the drive to create the MidAmerican Energy Company RecPlex is a steadfast commitment by local leaders to enhance the quality of life for all central Iowa residents. This first-of-its-kind complex greatly increases year-round access to sports programs for a growing youth community, contributing to a positive life-long impact in their lives. In addition to youth sports, the complex will also offer adult leagues, an outdoor playground and many other amenities.

Addressing a Need

An expanding list of partnerships from central Iowa’s largest youth/adult athletic organizations shows a commitment to fully utilize the facility. Current projections show over 1,080 participants per weeknight, and upwards of 5,000 per weekend day – making the complex immediately self-sufficient and sustainable. We anticipate additional usage by smaller conventions, trade shows and corporate gatherings.

Delivering Economic Benefits

Whether it’s for regional tournaments or an industry trade show, this venue will have the ability to draw visitors from all across our region. It will spur economic benefits to almost every local business category, from overnight accommodations to retail sales and restaurants.

Momentum for Our Community

The growth and population trends for central Iowa indicate a need for initiatives like this, especially when the momentum and enthusiasm are so high from the outset. Local leaders, community groups and private citizens have formed a public/private partnership that is dedicated to making the MidAmerican Energy Company RecPlex a reality. A clear plan of action combined with a long list of engaged partners means this first-of-its-kind venue is destined to be a jewel in our community.
