Team Activities

The Anthem Community Center Lap Pool and Diving Well are more than just aquatics park amenities; they’re training grounds for youth swimmers and divers of all ages. Anthem offers a recreational swim team, the Aquabats; a competitive swim team, the Dolphins; and a diving team, AZ Heat. All three programs are led by trained and experienced coaches and offer youth the opportunity to learn, practice and compete with growing teams in a thriving environment.
