Community Pool at the East End Campus of Suffolk Community College Now Taking Membership Application


The Community is now invited to enroll in annual memberships for the Community Pool at the Northampton Campus of Suffolk County Community College.  The Competitive size pool, located on Speonk-Riverhead Road, is now open to the public daily, with convenient hours that extend into the evenings and weekends.

“The new facility promotes a critically important health and fitness focus for the students and the community at large,” said Legislator Fleming. “Not only is this an investment in community health, but it also allows a valuable opportunity for residents to develop a safe relationship with water, and can serve as a training resource for first responders such as fire departments or the 106th Rescue Wing.”

“The community pool is a long realized project that I started when I was a Suffolk County Legislator,” said Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman. “This gives our residents a chance to develop healthy fitness habits closer to home and make new friends within the community they live.”

“This is a wonderful opportunity for members of our community to join a fitness facility, complete with a pool, that is within driving distance and one that is affordable for families and seniors,” said Southampton Town Councilman John Bouvier. 

The total cost of construction, just under $22 million, resulted from many years of committed effort by numerous partners including Assemblyman Fred Thiele, State Senator Ken LaValle, then Legislator Schneiderman, the Community College Board, County Executive Steve Bellone, and the Legislature. Legislator Fleming is grateful to the many partners who made the completion of the project a reality. She is particularly proud of final efforts, including the passage of a bond resolution in 2016, authorizing an additional $2,575,000 which passed by certificate of necessity and was signed by County Executive Steve Bellone on the very last day New York State would be able to appropriate the additional funding.

Assemblyman Thiele said, “The Community Pool at the eastern campus of Suffolk Community College has been a valuable addition for students at the college. It was always understood that the general public would also benefit from this new facility. I am pleased to see memberships for the community are now available to help meet their health, fitness and recreational needs.”

The state of the art facility includes a fitness area with a rock climbing wall, lockers and showers.  The membership fees are as follows.  

  • Adult Suffolk County Resident         $275/12 months
  • Child Suffolk County Resident         $220/12 months
    (up to grade 12)                                     $220/12 months
  • Family Membership                             $720/12 months 
    (head of household, spouse, dependents under 18 years, 23 if enrolled as full time student)
  • Senior 60 and over                              $220/12 months
  • Non-resident fee                                 $340/12 months
  • Non-resident senior                           $340/12 months
