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 pool is open from 6am to 7pm (Monday through Thursday), 6am to 5pm (Fridays) and 6am to 3pm on Saturdays. We offer Aquatic Fitness Classes, Open/Recreational Swim, Lap Swimming, Pool Party Rentals as well as Group/Private Swimming lessons and so much more!

SAAC Hosting Swim Meets

Use of the pool MAY be interrupted by the exclusive use of the SAAC to host local swim meets that would close the facility to regular users. 

ADA Accomodations
