Emler Round Rock serves families in southern Williamson County, including the cities of Round Rock, Georgetown and Cedar Park, as well as north-central Austin and Pflugerville. You can find us in the La Frontera Shopping Center near Barnes & Noble, Old Navy and Sam’s Club. We joined the community in 2017.
We’d love to find out more about how we can best serve you. Come by and take a free tour or go ahead and jump right in.
Safety has always been and will continue to be #1 at Emler. We’re doing what we’ve always done – followed or exceeded all local, state and federal guidelines – to protect not just your family but our employees as well.
We’re using CDC recommended cleaning products to wipe the facility every 30 minutes, and making hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes available. Instructors are wearing face shields in the pool, and we are requiring all adults out of the water to wear face coverings over their mouths and noses. Kids are not required to wear masks in the pool but those over the age of 2 are encouraged to wear them while they are not in a lesson.
We are allowing only one caretaker to accompany each little fishy, and chairs in the observation room and on the pool deck are spaced 6 feet apart. Employees are monitoring traffic in and out of the building to remind people about social distancing. Plus, we are taking staff temperatures within 5 minutes of the beginning of a shift. There is more information on our Health & Safety Protocols page.
Yes, it’s safe to be in pools! According to the CDC, there is no evidence that the coronavirus can spread through properly maintained pools. We’ve always valued health and safety, which is why we already had a top-of-the-line purification system with UV lights that kills and inactivates viruses and bacteria in addition to using proper chlorine levels. Every Emler pool meets or exceeds CDC health standards. Plus, our leading-edge air filtration systems replace stale air from the facility with fresh air 8 times per hour.
No one has to wear a mask in the water. Masks in the water are unsafe, which is why we would never require them. Plus, masks are ineffective when they’re wet. Our instructors instead wear face shields in the water.
All adults, including employees and caretakers, out of the water are required to wear a face covering over their noses and mouths. Kids are not required to wear a mask out of the water. However, children over the age of 2 are encouraged to wear a covering over their mouth and nose when entering and exiting the building or if they are not actively participating in a lesson.
We’ve always had small class sizes of 3-4 kiddos, as well as private lessons, and nothing has changed. We now offer the option to form your own private group with family, friends or neighbors you know. Additionally, another option is the parent & child class, with appropriate spacing between families in the pool, where kids receive instruction from a teacher on the deck. We are monitoring and strictly adhering to all local, state and federal guidelines regarding levels of occupancy and the number of people that are allowed in gatherings so we can continue to be the healthiest, happiest pool in town.
Aimee LeBel grew up in San Diego, California, with a passion for swimming. She attended San Diego State University, earning a Bachelor of Science in Applied Arts and Sciences in 2007, with a focus on recreation administration.
She joined Emler Swim School in 2015 as Manager-in-Training, soon being promoted to Lead Deck Manager. With the announcement of Emler’s newest location in Round Rock, Texas, Aimee was named as Aquatics Director. As the school began to take shape, she was promoted to Site Director and opened the new location in September 2017.
I love working with my staff and mingling with our families and students! It’s so fun to cheer them on throughout the day as they make progress towards their swim goals!
I am supportive of my team and I try to make work fun everyday! I make my self approachable and available to my team at any time!
I grew up taking swim lessons every summer and swam year-round in our backyard pool. Swimming is my passion and I looked forward to lessons every summer! I wish we had a year-round swimming school where I grew up!
There are so many memories! My favorite memory about working with Emler is all of the fun and games we would play at the end of our evening shift with our teaching staff.
I grew up taking dance lessons and being a cheerleader. I was always performing in front of large crowds, but I was never comfortable speaking in front of large groups of people. I have become more comfortable speaking in front of people since working at Emler. Making DM announcements were terrifying to start, but they have become a breeze with practice. Emler pushes you to be better and has helped me overcome my fear.
I love seeing each child go through “firsts” and different age stages of growth, and watching them blossom and learn. They also say some pretty hilarious things, and have the best smiles and laughs!
I enjoy crafting, bonding with my animals (Bearded Dragon and Hedgehog), any activity outside on a Sunny Day!
I love the unpredictability! When working with children, you never work the same day twice and everything is a new discovery.
My hobbies are roller skating and going out on Lake Austin!
