The Aquatic Center is currently CLOSED.

Updated: 05.15.2020

The State of Delaware has announced that it will lift restrictions on community pools starting on Friday, May 22, 2020.  However, the Sussex Academy Aquatics Center will continue to remain closed until further notice.  The extended closure due to COVID-19 has allowed us to begin much-needed renovations which are not yet complete.  We do not expect the renovations to be completed prior to June 1.
Our staff is in the process of developing a safe reopening plan based on the latest CDC recommendations and guidance from the Delaware Department of Heath.  This plan will include strict social distancing requirements and other restrictions.  The reopening plan will be shared with all members once all of the details are finalized and we are prepared for a safe reopening based upon the most up-to-date information.

~About Us~

Sussex Academy Aquatic Center is a part of the State of Delaware Sussex Academy Charter School and is a non-profit entity. We abide by the State of Delaware Code when it comes to holidays, CLICK HERE to see a list of the days we have our pool closures. However, we are open on President’s Day.

Please look under our SAAC FEES tab for more information regarding Membership opportunities. Please also review our calendar to see what programs are going on at the pool during what hours as there are some times that are very busy. Lap Swim times AND Recreation Swim times have been greatly reduced due to the pool being used for so many scheduled programs and rentals.

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.
