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.

Q+A with Catherine

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

I love interacting with the kids, their parents, and the Emler staff members. Emler has a wonderful company culture and it is fun to come to work. It feels like we are all part of a big family.

What do you believe makes you a great site director?

I truly care about every child, every customer, and every employee and always strive to find ways to make their lives better. I love being a supportive mentor, and I am passionate about my work and helping people in any way that I can.

Share a childhood memory about your experience with swim lessons.

I was 5 years old and was supposed to do a 15-minute endurance swim. I kept swimming and swimming and it felt endless and I wondered if they had forgotten about me, but I finally did it – and realized that the instructors had let me swim for 30 minutes because I still seemed so strong after 15.

What favorite memory do you have from working at Emler?

I clearly remember the first time I witnessed a Mom coming to class super excited, because her 3 year old (who had been quite scared of the water and resistant to learning to swim) had accidentally fallen into the deep end of the pool the day before, but had remembered the skill we taught her: She had immediately turned around, swam back to the wall, and saved herself! The little girl was incredibly proud and her confidence in her own swimming abilities grew exponentially. Honestly, every time I see that a child goes under water and holds the breath and smiles afterward and we realize that another child is now on the way to swimming independently and becoming safe in the water, I am filled with joy and happiness.

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

When I was 3, I cried every time before gym class. I sat in the locker room and was crying and did not want to go in because I was scared. But once I found the courage and participated, I loved it. I did not want to give up, even though I continued being scared every time before gym (and once I was 6 years old I was in the gym pretty much every day), especially before big competitions. Even as a Teenager, I still had to overcome my fears but my determination brought me all the way to the national gymnastics school finals. It taught me that some things will always make you nervous, but overcoming fears can be highly rewarding.

Q+A with Caitlyn

Why do you love working with kids?

I love watching a child discover something new. The look of wonder and the pride that shows when they are able to accomplish even the smallest of tasks is what I live for. I want to make sure that every child feels confident in themselves for every achievement they make!

What do you enjoy doing outside of Emler?

I love puzzles! I am constantly going to escape rooms to challenge myself. Often I’ll be putting together a 1000+ piece puzzle at home or even working through a scavenger hunt!
