Authored by Emlerswim

Emler Swim School, the nation’s fastest-growing swimming school, has announced the acquisition of Nitro Swim School’s Fort Wayne, Indiana location. The acquisition marks the 42nd swim school operated by Emler.

“This is a wonderful addition to the Emler Swim School family,” says Greg Laird, CEO of Emler Swim School. “Fort Wayne is a market that Emler Swim School has been looking at for several years. It is a vibrant and engaged community with young families.”

The Fort Wayne school is an 8,000 square foot facility in Chapel Ridge off Maysville Road near Hwy 37 and 469 in northeast Fort Wayne. It features a 4-foot deep pool, which is ideally suited for teaching young children to swim, and a conditioned viewing room for parents. The pool’s water is kept at a comfortable 90 degrees, while the inside air temperature in the pool environment is kept warm as well. The facility maintains a high level of water quality with two separate UV water purification systems. These provide a safe swimming environment without the use of excessive chlorination.

“These facility features allow a clean, safe and non-intimidating environment in which to teach children to swim,” says Laird.

Throughout its 48-year history, Emler has been famous for the high quality of its facilities and its teaching. The company has developed an admired and highly effective curriculum that teaches young children the fundamentals of swimming and water safety in a fun environment that emphasizes positive reinforcement.

“This was the right time for us,” said Nitro Swim School owner Mike Koleber, “We truly enjoyed serving the wonderful families in the Fort Wayne area, but the difficulty of being multiple states away proved to be daunting; especially as we currently expand our reach in our home state of Texas. The Emler folks run a quality organization and we are confident that our staff and swim families will be well taken care of.”

Parents have recognized Emler Swim School with the honor of Best Swim Lessons in a variety of publications, including D Magazine, DFW Child, Austin Family and Best of Metroplex.

The Fort Wayne location will be rebranded as Emler Swim School Fort Wayne. Nitro Swim School will continue to operate its existing locations in Cedar Park, Texas, and Bee Cave, Texas.
