McDowell Mountain Ranch Aquatic & Fitness Center

Scottsdale Aquatics Vision: "Everyone Learns to Swim".

Mission: Provide the highest quality of aquatic instructional and recreation services to Scottsdale residents and visitors in order to help achieve that vision.

Our facilities provide affordable, safe, diverse activities to meet community needs, with a focus on drowning prevention and water safety awareness.

The Aquatic Maintenance staff do everything they can to keep the pools clear and clean. You can protect yourself and others from Recreational Water Illness by reviewing recommendations by the CDC for healthy swimming.   

We have now transitioned to our new software program. Accounts are required to register for programs, classes, and purchasing membership passes.  We encourage all users to set up their new account by visiting the following link Active Net.links to external site
