The Spearfish Aquatics Club was formed in 2011 to support the reopening of the year-round pools at the Donald Young Center on the campus of Black Hills State University for use by residents of Spearfish and other northern Black Hills communities.

This effort is supported through membership dues and individual donations.  

For those who need entry to the small pool with the aid of the movable bottom:  please be there when the swim sessions begin.  The guards are to have the bottom of the pool up.  The process is slow and coordination with all who need assistance is important.  Egress time will need to be worked out with those using the therapy pool at the time.  While these arrangements may take some time to get worked out, it's wonderful to have the ability once again to serve all our members.

Information Cards about SAC are available at the Donald Young Center front desk and at other locations on campus and in the community.  Please feel free to pick up a couple of them and share with a friend!  You can also click on the image of the SAC Information Card (shown in the right hand column) to display a larger version of the card, which can be printed out and shared with others.  The card contains all the Membership Information that you can find by clicking on the MEMBERSHIP  tab above.  Help us spread the word!

Remember, too, that the Spearfish Aquatics Club (SAC) Board of Directors has approved a new discount membership program that began in February.  New and renewing members can save 10 percent on memberships by signing up for six consecutive months for $135 instead of $150.
Families with up to five members may purchase a consecutive 6-month membership for $243 instead of $270. A new feature also allows BHSU students with a current university ID to purchase a monthly membership for $20.

We continue to support activities and events that encourage all forms of aquatic exercise, especially swimming.   It is our vision to integrate community wellness programs, as they relate to swimming for ease of access and reasonable cost to all members of the community.

This web site is intended to spur greater awareness about the Spearfish Aquatics Club, encourage membership, and keep members updated regarding meetings, any changes in hours of operation, and other related activities and events.
