A yard is a measure of length in 1-dimensional space and so has dimensions [L].

A cubic yard, therefore, has dimensions of [L3] which are the dimensions of volume in 3-dimensional space.

Since it is a unit that measures volume, it could be used t measure the volume of a pool. However, nowadays, most people in the world would use cubic metres (or, possibly, litres).
