The Utah gymnasts train in one of the finest gymnastics facilities in the nation. The Dumke Gymnastics Center, which opened in 1998, is an 18,000-square foot stand-alone structure designed exclusively for the Utah women's gymnastics team.
A generous $1 million donation from the Zeke and Katherine Dumke family served as the lead gift for the construction of the Dumke Gymnastics Center, which was financed entirely through private donations.
Utah's gymnasts enjoy all of the latest models of gymnastics equipment and matting (loose foam, as well as resi-pits for each apparatus area). The facility is also equipped with high-tech automated video playback and bungee systems, and custom-designed sound, lighting and ventilation systems.
The Dumke Center is a completely self-contained gymnastics training facility with a locker room, athletic training and rehabilitation room, aerobics and lounge area, and a strength and conditioning level.
A planned expansion of the Dumke Gymnastics Training Center is scheduled to break ground in 2020. The $3 million-dollar expansion will include: partial second story addition, larger student-athlete locker room and gymnast lounge, outdoor balcony, enhanced athletic training and rehabilitation area, and coaches locker rooms.

Megan Marsden and Tom Farden pose in front of a bronze statue dedicated in the summer of 2018 in front of the Dumke Gymnastics Training Center. The commemorative work of art was created by former Ute assistant Jim Stephenson and donated by Zeke and Katherine Dumke. The three tiers of the concrete base represent the state of Utah, the University of Utah and the Utah gymnastics program. The 10 columns are symbolic of each national championship won by the program, while the bronze figure represents all former, current and future Utah gymnasts.
The gymnastics team trains on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, from 1 to 5 p.m. ALL practices are open to the general public. For the most up-to-date practice schedule, please call 801-581-6221 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
