Who scans my QR code?
At some locations, the pool staff will scan your QR code using the Corona Scanner app. In some locations, the Your Personal Swim Coach staff may be scanning your QR code. In either case, no information is retained.
Don't have a QR code?
Unfortunately, we cannot currently allow you to join our swimming classes. We would be happy to accommodate you in the future when this rule is no longer in effect and can thus help you remain on a waiting list for future classes.
What if I obtain a QR code after I had to stop swimming?
Great! We would love to have you join our swimming classes. Simply let us know via email that you have obtained a QR code and would like to continue or join your classes.
