Please check our website frequently to see if we close due to the storms. 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.
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:
Monday-Thursday from 6-8am and from noon to 3:30pm.
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8am and from noon to 5pm.
Fridays anytime (although we do have aquatic classes taking up 3 lanes from 8:30-10am
and from 11-12.)
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!
