Emler Swim School of Austin – Anderson Mill

Change Location

Our Anderson Mill location is off Highway 183 and Anderson Mill Rd. in north Austin beside the Austin Aquarium. We opened the first Anderson Mill school in 2003, but in 2015 moved to a location with more visibility and easier access a mile down the road. We’re proud to serve the communities of northwest Austin, Round Rock and Cedar Park.

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.

You can easily book time in the water  so you and your child can have some one-on-one time in the water together.

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.

Darcy Williams

Darcy loves children! At the age of 10, she completed her first Safe Sitter course and started babysitting. In elementary school, Darcy began playing volleyball and softball. Her love of playing these sports continued throughout her academic career, and even extended to coaching! Given her athleticism and skill, she earned college scholarships to play both sports. After earning a degree in Business Education from Oakland City University, Darcy taught high school for 7 years in Kentucky and Indiana. Darcy moved to Texas in September 2008. She began her career with Emler in 2014 as a Customer Service Manager, and was then promoted to Site Director in the fall of 2017.

Darcy’s fun-loving nature means she’ll usually answer in Disney Princess song form when asked a question. Since she’s generally viewed as “everyone’s mom”, her team has lovingly given her the nickname of Momoana (instead of Moana).

Q+A with Darcy

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

My favorite part of coming to work is getting to talk with the parents, play with the children and show love to our staff.

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

What makes me a great site director is my genuine care/concern/love for the people in this building.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

As a first birthday gift to my nephew, I purchased swim lessons for him. In Indiana at the time, only the local YMCA offered lessons. I still have the photo of the two of us on his first day of lessons!

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

My daughter’s fifth birthday party was held here at Emler. My favorite memory was to watch her swim freely, comfortably and safely! The huge relief of seeing her swimming that day made the experience of what we do here at Emler so much more personal!

Share a childhood memory when you were brave and overcame fear.

When I was 8, I learned how to skate since it was very popular with the boys in our neighborhood. I had pretty good balance, but there was one time that I fell off the skateboard as I was going down a big hill. I hit my head on the concrete, and an ambulance rushed me to the hospital. I ended up being fine, but the doctors advised my parents to monitor me for concussion. The next week, I was back on a skateboard again, trying to move past my nervousness!
