This Olympic-sized, covered pool was opened in 1991. It is named in honor of Doris B. Deriso, a major contributor for the facility. Deriso’s daughter, Betty Deriso Pope, served as GSW Foundation Board chair from 1988-1990, working tirelessly to make this pool a reality. Americus native Angel Martino earned gold medals at the 1992 and 1996 Olympics while training at the Deriso Pool.

Healthy Swimming

Remember, you share the pool water with everyone. You can help keep germs from causing recreational water illnesses by practicing good hygiene and not swimming when sick. Additional practices to help keep germs out of the pool include ensuring your kids take restroom breaks, changing diapers at diaper-changing areas only, and showering before swimming.
