We know that your kiddo loves spending time at the pool at Emler Swim School, and you would love to be able to have more time to practice skills with your child – that’s where Swim Station comes in! You can easily book time in the water  so you and your child can have some one-on-one time in the water together.

Please note that it is a requirement for an adult guardian to enter the pool per swimmer during your Swim Station time slot.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Are pools safe to swim in during COVID?

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.

What are your class ratios?

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.

How can I learn more about swim lessons?

You can get in touch with us in many different ways – call 855-232-2006, fill out this form or sit in on a virtual live information session that guarantees there won't be any phone tag. We host them on Zoom at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Central, Monday through Thursday. You can have your camera turned on or off, whatever you're most comfortable with! Sign up here.

I am originally from the Northeast, mainly the Philadelphia/South Jersey area. I started working for Emler in February of 2022 and I think it’s such a fun place to work and a great company! I’ve been married for 21 years to my wife Beth and we have 3 amazing children! I love sports and my favorite teams are the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Phillies & the Philadelphia 76ers.

Q+A with Paul

What is the best part about working for Emler every day?

Best part of working for Emler is knowing we’re providing a life saving skill to children.  What do you believe makes you a great site director? I love meeting people, building and supporting teams and knowing that the students that enroll will learn to swim.

What do you believe makes you a great general manager?

I love every family that enrolls with us. I care about each one of my staff members and their well-being and development.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

I never had structured swim lessons, I think I learned by just getting in the water, and over time gained confidence in my swim skills.

Share a childhood memory when you were brave and overcame fear?
When I first played baseball, I remember being scared that the ball would be hit to me. Sure enough it did! I quickly learned to overcome that fear and became a pretty good baseball player!
