     The South Fort 25M Pool is located at building 1458.  The 25M pool is reserved for swim lessons, CYSS activities and classes. It is also available for parties and special events.  This is an outdoor pool and is only open for the summer season. 
     All kids 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult or guardian (age 16 or older) at all times.  Children ages 7-12 may take a swim test to qualify to swim alone, but a parent or guardian must still be present in the pool area.  Younger children are allowed in the pool as long as they are fully potty-trained.  The Toddler Pool is available only during the summer for children who are not potty-trained, but they must wear appropriate swimmie diapers.  Call 531-1988 for more information.
