Electronic Pool Passes are Here

 Pool Passes on Phone

The Board of Directors for the Whittier Community Association is pleased to announce the return of the electronic pool pass system for the 2023 summer season. The pools will open on Saturday, May 27, 2023. This year, we will use online registration and a virtual ID process for pool access – this means NO MORE PHYSICAL CARDS to lose!  Additionally, homeowners will not need to re-register each year unless there are changes to the household.

Homeowners must complete the online pool registration.  If you are a tenant, please note that the homeowner must complete the registration process and authorize your use of the pool.  Homeowners can sign up and register using: whittier.cellbadge.com/Register your computer, smartphone, or tablet.

Registration Instructions. This is a multi-step process!

  1. Sign up as a new member using the GREEN BOX
    • Please use the property address in Whittier.
    • Once you submit your basic information, it is sent to the management/pool administrator to confirm that you are a homeowner in Whittier.
    • You will receive a text/email once your information has been validated.  At this time, your final registration is PENDING until you update your household members (see below).Instruction Box
  2. After you receive your text/email, return to: whittier.cellbadge.com/Register using the BLUE BOX “Registered Previously or Approved” and enter your email address and phone number to get your unique PIN to authenticate your account.
    • You will receive a PIN via text and email.  Enter the PIN to continue the process.


  3. After entering your PIN, you will be taken to the POOL REGISTRATION page:
    • Register every member of your household (first and last name and age category).
    • Once you submit your information, your registration is sent to the pool administrator/community manager for final approval.
    • You will receive a confirmation text/email to notify you when your registration has been ACCEPTED.
    • At your first visit to the pool, a lifeguard on duty may take your photograph to accompany your registration and complete your household record.
  4. After this process is complete, your access to the pool for the remainder of the season will be quite simple.  No pass is required – just check-in with the lifeguard by providing your name and address, and they will be able to access your “virtual ID card” and photo and allow access to the pool. This new process takes the place of the old pool pass system.
