The Aquatic Center is currently CLOSED to the PUBLIC!

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.

Drop-In Fees and Punch Cards are available. Look under our SAAC FEES tab 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.

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!
