What is Group Reservation?

Group reservation is a process where groups pre-reserve dates at any of the two City of Scottsdale Aquatic Centers. This is ideal for large groups, summer camps, or private organizations and payment is expected on the day of use.

  1. All requests will be addressed on a first come first serve basis. Summer schedule starts June 3 - Aug 2.
  2. The pool manager will determine availability for requested dates and times and your initial request may need to be altered due to maximum capacity requirements. The pool coordinator will determine maximum occupancy after receiving scheduling requests from all groups. You will receive a confirmation from the pool manager along with payment options.
  3. Your requests should be limited to a maximum of three days per week and two hours per day. The pool manager must approve requests for dates and times exceeding these guidelines.
