Please check our website frequently to see if we have to close due to the weather! It is Delaware state law 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.
CLOSED Thursday November 22nd and Friday November 23rd.
Sussex Academy Aquatic Center is apart of the State of Delaware Sussex Academy Charter School and is a non-profit entity. The pool is OPEN to the PUBLIC. You do NOT need a membership to use the pool. Drop-In Fees are available. Look under our MEMBERSHIP tab for our Membership Fee Form for more information. 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.
TYPICALLY the best times to come in for Lap Swimming and for Recreational Pool time are the following:
Starting Monday November 19th, the pool will open at 5:30am instead of 6am on a trial basis.
Monday-Thursday from 5:30-6:30am and from noon to 3:30pm.
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-6:30am and from noon to 3:30pm.
Fridays anytime (although we do have aquatic classes taking up 3 lanes from 8:30-10am
and from 11-12 and we do have a swim team using 3 lanes from 3:30-5pm.)
Saturdays after 12:30pm although there are lanes open all morning.
Please remember that we ask everyone to evacuate the pool 15 minutes before closing time so that everyone can be out of the locker rooms by closing time.
Thank you for choosing us!

Monday-Thursday- 6:00am-7:00pm (Starting Monday November 19th we will open at 5:30am.)
