Manana Housing Pool Patron information & Rules

There will be a pool break 10 minutes before the top of every hour.  Patrons can stay in the facility during the break but they will have to exit the water.  This is to eliminate exhaustion and hypothermia since we are not implementing the 30 minute cleaning break during the middle of the day.

Manana Housing Pool Patron information & Rules: 

  1. All Patrons must check in at the Check-In Table upon entering the facility. 

  1. Minors ages 9 and under must be accompanied by a Parent / Guardian / Sponsor aged 18+ with a valid Military / Dependent ID at all times.   

  1. Minors ages 10-15 may enter the facility unaccompanied providing they show a valid Military / Dependent ID and a valid MCCS Semper Fit Swim Pass (Blue Pass) upon check-in. 

  1. Patrons 16+ must show a valid Military / Dependent ID or State ID / Driver’s License (if sponsored) upon check-in.  Physical ID cards must be presented (no photos).  Photos of MCCS Swim Passes will be accepted.

  1. Non-Coast Guard approved flotation devices are not allowed in the Pool (i.e.: inner tubes, pool noodles, water wings).
