~About Us~

Sussex Academy Aquatic Center is a part of the State of Delaware Sussex Academy Charter School and is a non-profit entity.

Please look under our SAAC FEES tab for more information regarding membership opportunities. 

Please remember that we ask everyone to exit the pool 15 minutes before closing time so that everyone can be out of the locker rooms by closing time.

Please check our website frequently to see if we have to close unexpectedly, especially due to weather. It is Delaware State Code that outdoor AND indoor pools must evacuate for 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder or last strike of lightning. If storms are predicted for long periods of time, we may make the call to close the pool for the rest of the day or to delay the opening.

The hours are subject to change due to weather, rentals and sometimes other events that might be out of our control!

Thank you for choosing us!

Please note

Our facility is an eight-lane, 25-yard, heated, year-round indoor pool. We have ample deck space, as well as an upstairs mezzanine for spectator seating. This makes it one of the largest pools in Sussex County, Delaware. We would like to extend our thanks to Schell Brothers Inc. who donated and built the facility (December 15, 2016).

The Aquatic Center offers Aquatic Fitness Classes, Lap Swimming as well as Group/Private Swimming lessons and so much more!
